The speakers worked relatively well. The speakers still have a terrible signal to noise ratio, but oh well.

I heard a somewhat loud pop from time to time. Usually when an audio track changes, like from one

menu to another. They didn't appear to get as loud as I would expect, but compared to the 400 watts

I normally have hooked to my DVD player, the BA735 speaker seem to do pretty well. :-)

I wonder who is more standard, the digital post on the JBR, or my Toshiba DVD player?

Or... perhaps they use different digital standards. [RANT]Grr.. crappily documented digital I/O features...

"Yea, we have a digital output." Yea, but what digital standard? "Huh?"[/RANT]

Oh well,
