    im looking at a set of the

    AMBASSADOR 46SRTL

    from adelaide speakers for my next upgrade ............i know i dont really need them...........but bloody hell i want them.

    Either that or there is a set of paradigm Studio 60's for $2100

    I have not quite made up my mind but i prefer the astethics of the Ambassador. I know it should be all about the way they sound but i just don't like the look of the studio 60's very much

    It's outdoor cushions. It's fine in water. It'll just drain off. Like pool furnitures.

    So.. installed XBMC today, and set that to send DTS-HD etc.. and IT WORKS
    Receiver says DTS-HD
    So something in my previous setup wasn't bitstreaming correctly.. NFI what..
    If only XBMC looked a little more like media browser..

    MQ4 is a bit full on at first, Down x2 on the remote or keyboard on the home screen takes you to settings.

    I think the StreamedMP skin that everyone was using before was a knock off of XBMC?

    Titan badly needs an editor to change backgrounds, menu layouts, thumbs etc. Apparently coming with 1.3 final.
