I just checked and the package to Italy now shows that it was delivered a few days ago, so 2 months transit time.

Re: I love modern technology

[. My suspicion is that it may work better too since I tweaked my receiver/monitor setting. My optical feed is now coming from the new TV monitor, not the old sat receiver. That's how I currently run the feed into miniDSP so works for me. We can figure out some kind of a trade later... I wasted yea...

Re: I love modern technology

Do you have a link to the $32 surround decoder that actually works? It's on my list as something to mess with over the winter.
