Curious, why are you using 2 different amps (433 and HPA-2)? I know they are similar, but they are not quite the same. Also, are you doing 6.1 or bi-amping something, and doing 5.1?

Well, it was an HPA-3 and HPA-2, I sold the HPA-3 and replaced it with and ML 433 which still only leaves me with 5 channels, so no bi-amping here.

Why are they different? I was going to do 5 ML 436's but they couldn't be delivered in a timely manner, and then I heard of all the new ML amps coming down the line so I got a 433 to sort of 'tide me over' until the 5 series comes out.

For some reason I thought the 433, HPA-3, and HPA-2 were all 3 channel amps which would leave you an extra channel to use to bi-amp with. So, if you do go with 5 ML 436's, you will probably need to to buy a 2nd rack, or more shelves?

The HPA's channels are denoted by the number, HPA-2 is two channel, HPA-3 is three channel, same for all the proceed amps amp 5 is five channels, BPA-3 three etc.

I could easily fit the two on my rack that is off the the side of the room, maybe i would put one on an amp stand, one as the base, hadn't gone that far. I would want to keep the three for the front up front, so I was prepared to move three of the 20A lines to that wall and I was hunting for a racxk to hold three across and a center channel and my 70" RPTV above or I might have kept what I use now, which would have held two and added an amp stand.

I actually placed the order for the amps (5x436's) and while waiting for them, got a sneak peak at the new 5 series ML amps so due to the long wait for the 436's (they weren't expected until 11/2007, I ordered in summer) and the 5 series coming out Q1 or Q2 2008, I decide to buy the 433 (immediately available) and wait on the new 5 series.

I just got back from checking out the 11" OLED at the Sony Store. It is really impressive, definitely worth going to see. The screen thickness of 1/8" is amazing. You don't quite realize how cool it is until you look at it from the side. I will definitely want one when the price drops and when they are making larger screens. I forgot how tiny an 11" screen looks - seems like it should be on the back of a car headrest.

I talked with a salesperson at a local high end home theater shop yesterday and he told me that the new High-Def format will be going to 1770p within 2-3 years. He said his source was that he went to the CES show and got the information there. Has anyone heard anything about this?
