This system sounds amazing. Hook up was a breeze, all the wires color coded, but toting the 143lbs package from store to car, and car to inside home was a challenge. Speaking of wires, the ones supplied really do need to be changed. They are very thin (21 awg). But for $1K, a pre-complied system out of the box....this is a great sounding system. The amp in the 990THX is better than that of the 9100THX. However, there is a point when increasing volume on the reciever past -13 db the loudness is no longer percieved. And the lack of HDMI is a bummer. However, popping in the THX Demo Disc II supplied shows off what a great speaker/ reciever package this is. A reciever upgrade in the future will cure the hdmi and HD audio formats deficiency.
You'll rarely hear anyone say, "I wish I'd gotten less Sub."
