Look at it this way. You can upgradethe Encore to the latest Ovation-8 Theatermaster for $1650. Add a $200 for display and latest remote for roughly $1850. Yuortotal cost would be just over $3000 for what is bascially a brand new Theatermaster Ovation-8. The pricing for the Ovation-8 is $4500. Sounds like a deal. I have the 5.1 Ovation, that I bought becasue I felt I needed both a new pre-amp and and a DAC. The EAD Ovation, in that light, was a bargain with exceptional sound. The Encore isn't far off that mark, so for $1200 it's cheap (they are $3000 new) and It would have a very economic upgrade path should you want to go that way.
