    Can't make my mind up. I know there are not yet released in UK or USA but it won't be long, April to June is what I heard
    I like the sound of 4808c mainly its got 6 hdmi in and two hdmi output so I can connect plasma and pj beside dts ma and truhd and Reon VX video scaling and Audyssey MultEQ XT Room Acoustics Correction
    I have ex1 at this moment I have onkyo tx nr900e which doesn't have hdmi so I have concocted through analogue and I am not sure if I am hearing truehd. I know you don't need 1.3 amp to get hd sound but I am one of those guys who like to see on the display showing dts ma or Dolby TrueHD when something sounds great.
    Any help would be appreciated
