The music is great! But, frankly, I think it will really shine in the Dolby 5.1, since it's virtual surround, even on 2-channel, sounds fantastic. Watching analog TV, using the setup with the virtual surround gives such a good experience. I can't wait to have HD, and and HDTV, to watch! DVDs sound beautiful, too I'm not a real audiophile, so what I hear is more "beauty in the ears of the beholder," rather than and technical details.
There are plenty of threads talking about 5.1 systems, but I'm glad there is so much discussion about 2.1 systems, here. I would have liked the Bose small speakers, but the Denon had so much better reviews, that I had to get it. Tried to get it on a well-known auction site, but ended up getting it at BB as an open-box item. No problems in that regard, though.
