Re: Is DTS Master Cinema worth the investment
Kenny is right. It is worth it.
As far as cost to get started...I upgraded my system with the Onkyo SR-TX805 and the Panasonic DMP-BD30 at a modest cost of $1,400. You can easily spend more, but after listening to Denon and Yamaha AVRs at a higher price point and reading reviews of both AVRs and Blue Ray players, the modest cost option made good sense for me.
My comments represent only my opinion and are not intended to stir the rath of higher end audio/videophiles. For the regular working man who must consider cost into the desicion process, the components I bought bring out the "pop" and "Wow" of Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio without putting too much of a bite into the bank account.
Is it worth it to upgrade now? You bet.
