    Can you expand on this statement about carpet? This is the first I have heard that sitting on carpet can degrade the sound quality. Thanks.

    Crutchfield sells it for $999, so a $311 savings seems like a good deal. Assuming it is new from an authorized dealer.

    I think the PS3 sales are what tipped the movie industry into supporting Blu-Ray and not HD-DVD.

    Yes. I went from 16 guage wire to 12 guage stranded copper that I bought at the hardware store, and it made a fantastic improvement in sound quality.

    No, it does not sound as if they are talking about the LSi15s.

    I just purchased and listened to the SACD version of "Dark Side of The Moon" last night and was amazed. If there was ever a recording that was made for multi-channel sound this is it.

    I seem to remember reading that while most movies are 5.1, not many are 7.1. Also, I think SACD and DVD-Audio are only 5.1. Someone will provide the correct answer if this is wrong.

    Are you refering to 5.1 "rears" or 7.1 "rears". I only have a 5.1 setup and went from LSi7 to LSi15s, and it made a big differance. Depending upon the movie, the "rears" can be very active, or...
