I wanted to get a new thread started for discussing features, settings, impressions, etc. of the Denon S-101 or S-301.
I have had the S-301 for a little while and I think its awesome. Without question, its not as good as a 5.1 to 7.1 surround sound set-up, but it has some outstanding benefits...namely a near surround sound with great 'sound' producing speakers. Its solid for movies, stereo, cd's, mp3s, etc. I gave up my old 5.1 setup for space reasons and I was tired of the wires everywhere. I do plan to have a home theatre set-up in the near future, but for now, this Denon works very well for me.
I have also found the upscaling DVD to be nice when coupled with my Sony XBR.
Only downside is price, but what's new.
