Hi. My current 3 year-old HT set-up consists of:
Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver
Panasonic DMP-BD35 blu-ray player
Dali Ikon 6 front speakers
Dali Ikon Vokal 2 center speaker
Dali Concept 1 rear speakers
Dalik Ikon subwoofer
Panasonic AX-200 projector
Da-Lite 106" fixed screen
Ecosse CS4.45 speaker cables, Van del Hul Flat HDMI cable, Tacima CS929 mains
I'm thinking of doing a gradual upgrade of my system by replacing my receiver, blu-ray player, and projector with Onkyo TX-NR818, Panasonic DMP-BDT210, and Panasonic PT-AR100U. My questions are as follows:
1. Will the NR818's characteristic match with my Dali speakers? (I'm not sure if it has the same characteristic as the 606 even if both of them are Onkyos.)
2. Is the BDT210 considered a good upgrade from BD35? Or should I go for the BDT310 or another brand/model instead?
3. Is the AR100U going to produce a significantly far better picture than the AX200 considering the former is 1080p and the latter is 720p? (My viewing distance is approx. 15 feet)
4. Since I'll be buying each component one at a time over 6-12 months, in what order would you suggest do I buy them (cost notwithstanding)?
Thanks a lot.
