Let me just say wow! My RCA receiver was dying so I decided to go receiver shopping. I ended up with more then I expected and am quite pleased. I moved from DD radio shack RCA, to a Onkyo 5 dvd receiver with DTS and DPL2 and component switching. Well, with that my 27" RCA s-video just would not do, so I was still constrained by my entertainment center, so I bought a Samsung 27" dynaflat tv, with component inputs and vertical compression. Now I had been playing dvds with my playstation 2, and the jump to progressive scan dvd, was amazing. I calibrated with video essentials and an spl meter, and I am amazed at some of the sounds and visuals I was missing before. Before RCA 27" with s-video input (convex screen) RCA 350w receiver with DD (no dts) Playstation 2 as DVD player via optical cable and s-video After Samsung DynaFlat TV TXN2734 (component) link Onkyo DR-C500 (DTS, DD, DPL2) link Now what is cool about this setup, VHS even looks sooooo much better. So I trimmed the amount of components on the shelf and improved overall experience. I read this forum every day and all the other stories are fun to read, so here is mine. Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated.
