Hey everyone! I've been out of the HT loop for a while. Upgrades were limited from being an apartment dweller & low funds. That's all changing.. business is good and we take ownership of a house on the 30th. I will have a partially finished basement that will be great for a small (~400sf) dedicated HT So.. to say the least I'm excited! Anyway.. As the subject title says I have the H/K AVR80 & Sony EP9ES. Am I in serious need up upgrading? Is DPL2 living up to everyone's expectations.. beyond? I have plans to add a Millennium DTS decoder for now. My first purchase will be (most likely.. unless someone recommends something else) a Mit 55311, so this will take up a huge chunck of my WAF dollars If I had.. say $500 to spend on a receiver.. Is there something for that amount that would be worth giving up the H/K - EP9ES - Millennium combo? Is there a DPL2 stand alone decoder?? That's it for now.. I'm sure I will be posting daily from here on out!!!!
