This is BS. The modded 3960 sounds awesome as promised. It beat out my pioneer unit which was much more expensive. Ok, I'll give it that and just say that it is the combination of parts. Now for the BS part. I held onto the DV-47Ai because it is touted as being an awesome video machine. It even lists my PDP-3050 plasma as being a great match. Well, after shipping off my modded 3960 I finally got around to hooking the pioneer up to my plasma. It is ok in most respects but it leaves digitized edges on everything, comparitively. In some respects it is a little better than the 3960 but overall the 3960 did a much better job. How can this POS 3960 better both the audio and video quality over the pioneer. I mean, so what the h$ll did I spend an extra $800 for? To say the least I'm a little pissed right now. Yes, I made sure all the settings were correct and played with the menus for at least 6 hours today. Off to ebay with the pioneer and I guess I'll spend another saturday modding yet another unit for myself, just for the video if nothing else. How can this be???
