From what I've read and seen, it seems that the only difference between the new 1056 and current 1055 is the addition of High Definition Component ins/outs. I'm really dying to pick up one, and want to know if the added HD capability is realistically something I should wait until March (April?) for. I only have a Sony DVD currently (although am eyeing the Rotel 1040), and am just running an old Sony 27" tv, although I'm hoping to pick up a 42" rear projection LCD Grand Wega by the end of the year. I don't watch too much tv, and only have a cable feed, no satellite or HDTV. My speakers are Axiom M22's and an HSU sub. Is the HD component something I 'need' to support dvd and/or HDTV with my future LCD? Or is this for far more high end stuff than I have? I'm not very patient about waiting, because I'm thinking I might be able to get a deal on the leftover 1055's while they last. Thanks!
