    If there's still room, I'd like to attend. Bloomington's only about 45 minutes away.

    I realize that this is primarily an audio event, but just wanted to float this idea:

    The host said that he's primarily set up for HT use. If there's any interest in A/B-ing the new HD formats (both audio and video) I can provide a Toshiba HD-A1 (HD-DVD) and Sony PS3 (Blu-Ray) as well as 20+ BR titles and 60+ HD-DVD titles... by then I'm likely to have a boatload more of both formats...

    Hello guys!

    I haven't been around lately due to travel back from Iraq and family issues. Long story short, my wife was recently in the hospital for an aneurism. Everything is well now(thank God), she came home yesterday afternoon.

    polksda-

    Yes, I'm mostly setup for HT. I have the Toshiba XA1 and the Sammy BR player soon to be replaced with the Panny. You are more than welcome to bring the PS3 as we can compare to see if there is a difference at all?

    Anything else I've missed out on in the last few weeks??

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Thanks! The speakers are connected!

    The LSi's are a HUGE step above the RTi's in my rig and they aren't even properly setup yet!

    The more I listen to them, the bigger the grin I get on my face!:D

    Don't worry about bringing the PS3, I picked one up a few days ago.:)

    You are more than welcome to bring over some BR titles though.

    I have a few titles as of now, BHD, Tears of the Sun, Pearl Harbor, and Ice Age.

    Seems like most folks who are "serious" about HD are ultimately picking up a player of each flavor; only way to get the best of both worlds until someone comes up with a universal player... doesn't look like either format is going away anytime soon.

    Even the older titles on the 2 formats that people often complain about being soft (Total Recall-BR, Stargate-BR, 1976 King Kong-French HD-DVD, The Fugitive-HD-DVD, amongst others) are *still* leaps and bounds above what the SD-DVDs look like. Contrary to what many people think, releasing something in HD doesn't "magically" refilm and remaster everything to make it look like today's CGI-ized films...

    But I digress... between the 2 formats I'm now over 100 titles, so I'll have plenty to bring; will check in as we get closer to the event, so that I don't duplicate titles you already own. :)

    Yep, you pretty much nailed it right on the head!

    You sure do have a lot of titles, we'll compare like you said as we get closer to the event.

    I'm really getting excited about this, I can't wait! :D

    Tonight is the first time I ever noticed this thread. I may be able to attend if there's space left and if there's nothing going on at work that weekend. Summer is the heart of construction season, so I'm usually pretty busy. I won't be able to say until much later if I will be able to make it, but if I do, I could carry several people from Chicago in my Durango, or, since I work at O'Hare airport, I could probably pick up anyone who's flying in...
