I figured out how to run True HD through my PS3 and Onkyo 805 and WOW!!
We fired up Transformers on Blu-ray and it was unreal. I can not explain how awesome it was using the Mal-x on low-end!!!!!!! I highly recommend everyone experience this at least once in their lifetime!!! I had no idea how good that movie sounds. The very beginning where the helicopter is flying must be under 20hz!!!! :dumbcrazy:

I also found out that maggies are very limited by their lack of xmax!! Time to build some new speakers. :explode:

The dynamics is HUGELY improved with the True HD. It is very noticeable in all the speakers. The Mal-x did a great job of hanging with the increased dynamics but I can't say the same for the maggies. Looks like Magnepan speakers are as out of date as their website. The MC1's did not like the increased dynamics. They complained as soon as the volume reached the FUN zone. :bigsmile:

I will have to try some other movies like Prince Caspian.

Has anyone else played around with True HD?
