At $2K The def tech is quite expensive.

I have this feeling that a soundbar should be cheaper than a surround sound amp plus speakers by definition!

I am looking to replace a NAD 712 conventional stereo receiver with something that supports 5.1 or 7.1 audio.

Thanks, re no dialog enhancement.

What about the ability to limit loud sounds such as the commercial volume reduction techniques some devices have?

Does it have any features along that line?
