Thank you Theo. You make some very good points. Blu Ray isn't a priority at this point. To pose the question again.If I buy this for $4,000 and for some reason don't like it can I recover most of my investment here on Agon?

1 Def Tech Supercube II vs 2 Def Tech ProSub 200TL
I have the pro sub 200 left over from a system of long ago. It is very weak. I am not an authority on subs but I would think 1250 watts out of an 8 inch would move more air than 2 12 inch subs pushing 250 watts. But I may be wrong. Good luck.
