HT-S9100THX -- DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS SYSTEM?

So I am still looking for a Home Theater Audio solution. I will need receiver AND speakers.

Originally found the ONKYO S6100 which apparently has a hybrid 606 receiver and low end speakers... I then found out about the Pioneer 1018 which looked better than the 606 receiver, BUT does not come as a HTiB setup... And at ~ $550 it already costs more than the 606 HTiB kit (the S6100.)

So today I found out about the ONKYO S9100THX HTiB.

It looks decent but has a $899 price tag if you check the regular places or ($999msrp).

I wonder if the speakers are wall mountable as I think I would need that capability, but at 11.7lbs and 8lbs per speaker I wonder?

So far I notice that the receiver does upscaling to 1080P - this would make it a different receiver than the one included with the S6100 (as it only does 1080i upscaling).

It is also THX INTEGRADED SYSTEM Certified... Apparently that means 6-8 feet?
