Thanks for the info!
I went ahead and picked up the matching B5's for my surround rears today, it's something I was going to have to do at one point for sure, where as the benefit of the newer receiver was questionable. This also gives me time to demo some other makers in the summer, ( I heard the new Onkyo 929 is coming out then and has XT32 ) ... so I'll have more options to choose from. Thanks again everybody!
