napski, am I seeing that correctly- is that a 1000 dollar AV receiver? My opinion, if they are refunding you, save yourself some serious coin and get yourself a 3-500 dollar receiver. An expensive receiver won't make speakers sound any better than properly set up speaker hooked to a budget AVR. I have the Denon 1613, the Yamaha v373 (both around 200 dollars) and they have all the feature I need, enough power, room correction and both sound great.
btw, I watch Live, Die, Repeat tonight! Man, if you want a movie that will make your surround system sing and your subwoofers holler, than one fits the bill. Good movie, too...
