It is same price as the Onkyo set up... and the receivers look pretty identical... both do the HD codecs...
But the difference is... you are getting Boston Acoustic speakers... and everyone knows they are a huge upgrade to the Onkyo "throw in" speakers....
1.The Onkyo reciever is a bit more powerful and carries a THX certification.
2. All five BA speakers have single 3" drivers. The fronts and center in the Onkyo setup have dual 5" drivers, and all 4 rears have single 5" drivers.
3. The Onkyo is a 7.1 set up. The Denon and BA is a 5.1.
4. The Onkyo speakers have wood cabinets.
5. The Onkyo has a 12" 290w sub. The BA is a 100w 8" sub.
The Onkyo is by far a better system for the $$$

Can someone that owns this unit give a good review?
Is it worth the 300 dollar difference over the 6100?
I would appreciate any advice. I know you can buy separates but this route seems much easier.
Thanks in advance!
I would suggest going to a store and looking/listening to both.
