UPDATE: Read my review here (tl;dr - the white 9963 IEMs are better or equal to the black 9927 IEMs in every way):
Random question: anyone know if an RG-62B/U 93ohm coaxial cable (originally used for ARCnet) would work for coaxial digital audio?

And for the curious, regarding the issue I mentioned before about the receiver not having a phono input - his turntable has a USB output, so we can just plug that into the currently-WIP HTPC and plug the HTPC's HDMI output directly into the new receiver. I tested the HDMI out with the TV and the turntable's USB worked flawlessly as long as sleep mode isn't used. All you got to is turn on the computer and that's it - the audio from the turntable will automatically play through the HTPC and out through the HDMI.
Needless to say, with all of that (even the turntable) we've finally entered the 21st century in terms of home theater! ...well, except that out 28-year old 80w-each stereo speakers are still going strong.
EDIT: Is it just me or was the text editor updated? The quick reply doesn't seem to have change, but everything else seems to have - specifically the edit post editor and the full page editor. It now uses the exact same text editor that Overclock.net uses.
One thing is I noticed right away is that it's a lot less demanding on my CPU; before I'd even sometimes get a noticeable amount of lag with my 2.5GHz Athlon 64 x2 4800+ (65nm, C2) - not a new CPU, but I've never had such an issue anywhere else. Now the webpage seems to be perfectly smooth even with my CPU underclocked and undervolted at 1GHz 0.775v! (Firefox's GPU acceleration does help a ton with the webpage smoothness though)
And holy crap the seemingly-updated text editor works with BBcode! Everybody Wang Chung tonight! (FYI I was using an original 1986 vinyl of that song to test my father's turntable's USB output, so the song is kinda stuck in my head)
EDIT 2: I just realized; seeing how this is the same text editor that OCN uses, that means custom spoiler tags are now supported!
