    Tough Question: Is the PT-AE2000 worth the extra $1,000? I have heard the AX has a nive virtual 1080i and the AX has a 500 lumen advantage over the PT. This will allow me to use the room for playing cards or hosting a football party with the TV on in ambient light? Is this true or will the PT...

    Hey there, I just got my new NHT Classic 3 and I thought I would let you know my impressions. I bought a pair to upgrade my TV system. This is hooked up to a Onkyo 875. I was using a set of B&W CM1 and decide to move my CMs to my main HT system. Before I bought my B&W CM1, I had been looking...
