Amplifiers have considerably wider bandwidth than humans can hear and more is always better. hi def broadcast movies on the 1080P are beyond anything I've ever had. So sharp it's mesmerizing.
The reason I have one TODAY is I dared the salesman to sell me because I was going to wait a year for 1080P prices to fall. Then he offered me the 1080P at a 720P price so it was very simple. I didn't have to wait.
If you're going to pony up the same money get the best you can get. It would defy logic to do any less.
