I just picked up my new 56TXi today and pulled out the 1014. Setup was a snap and in less than 10 minutes I was up and running again. . . The differences are subtle, mostly when the rubber hits the road and you need the extra balls that the 56 has. Much cleaner, wider soundstage and a whole bunch of stuff I am still figuring out. One thing is clear the 1014 would be damned hard to beat in a small room with some effecient speakers where you dont need the power. My room is 14x20 not big, not small but just right to see the differences. Are there 1000.00 dollars difference>?? Only time will tell. . . I know I already see some of the differences I was after and that was with a quick and dirty set-up and only one movie. Tomorrow is another day. . . I look forward to some play time then. . . WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
