Default Re: New Toshiba A35 HD DVD Player

Since I own a home theater and hi-fi company I obviously get all of my gear for my cost. I'm not partial to either format, but I have checked them all out and liked the Toshiba HD-A20 the best. But,...this was before the 3rd generation came out. I'm not worried about it not being 1.3v because we're still not up to that version yet. I have 4 home theaters in my home. Well, 3. My Krell is a home theater, but I mainly use it for multi-channel music. I also have a Lexicon with Totem speakers, a Cambridge Audio with Revel Performa speakers and actually believe it or not, but my Pioneer Elite VSX-82TXS with 1.2v and Definitive Technology BP 7000s, BP 7006s as rears, c/l/r 2500 and 2300s as centers, SM-450s as rears and 4 SuperCube Trinity Signature subwoofers is my favorite. Anyway I bought a Toshiba 52HL167 that has the best picture I've seen yet. It is so true to life it looks like you're right there. I'm not a big fan of plasma because they are too colorful. I prefer true to life color. With my receiver being 1.2v and my HD DVD being 1.2 on that screen as far as I'm concerned is as 3D as 3D can get, but that is because we are still at 1.2v anyway. I also have 2 Pioneer Elite A-35Rs. One running my SM-450s and the other running my 2 C/L/R 2300s as my R and L centers on each side of my 2500. Which makes for the perfect wide center channel to match my 7000s. It sounds awesome. Anyway I run the HD DVD audio in auto mode, so my VSX-82 runs in Dolby Digital perfectly. I can't complain about the perfect separation, detail, imaging and soundstage it produces. I'm running my complete system with Audioquest HDMI Ones, AQ Kingcobras for interconnects and AQ Gibraltars as speaker wire. My CEDIA custom installers and I put the whole system together. Once we were finished none of us have ever heard a system of that quality sound as good as my Krell system. We just finished the system and I'm thinking of putting it in a couple of the home theater magazines if they'll accept. Back to the Toshiba HD-A20. It makes SD DVDs look extremely improved like it's suppose to. I'm going to have to say I've seen the 3rd generation players because I carry them and I still think the HD-A20 is the best HD DVD so far, but that also depends on the monitor, receiver or pre/pro, interconnects and speaker wire you use to get the enhanced high-end a/v you want to get out of your source. And I almost forgot, also use a good line conditioner because to keep out EMI and RFI you not only need proper PSC+, well insullated cables and wires, but a line conditioner to boot! When it all goes to 1.3av then that's when I'll replace the receiver and HD DVD, MAYBE! We'll see if there's an improvement. They'll have to show me not tell me!

Elite A/V,

You art a sick man putting four Def Tech Trinity's in one room???

My HT is in a pretty large (16'x26' with an open wall one one half of the long wall sides) and now I have four of their Mythos ST's in there and the bass is truly amazing. I can't imagine how much air moves in your room with four Trinity's! I can get magazines to shake in your hand with the ST's.....

Elite,

You are MY KINDA GUY.

Bravo for going for the low-end gusto with 4 Trinty woofers.

Has anyone lost control of their bowles yet?

The Elite A/VPhile,

Congrats on all your systems. Its good to hear that evrything that has been written positively for Definitive products, actually is so with yours and kennyt`s endorsement. And, it also seems that using receivers as opposed to integrated amps or power amps, sound is not being sacrificed.

I wonder, with all the new Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon, Marantz, and Integra receivers coming out with all the updated software, if will see a shift in the high end marketplace to receivers becoming the "hub"if you will, of the system? As opposed to power amp, preamp-processor etc.

Especially, since they seem much slower to market place with the updates.
