Okay, this Kenwood VR8070 has everything I'm looking for and it's right at the price point I can talk the wife into right now. I have not owned anything Kenwood in probably 10 or 15 years and frankly I'm not sure of thier quality. I mean, the fact that this unit has THX select certification kind of leads me to believe that it can't be total crap, right? I know, THX certification is not the answer to everything and lots of people probably could care less for it. I have only been able to find like 2 reviews on this unit and both were good but I have yet to find anyone that actually has experience with one. Any ideas on why I should or should not go with this one? This would hopefully be an upgrade from my Sony DAV-FC7 home theater in a box system. I can get the Kenwood for under $350 and that looks really tempting unless somebody cares to convince me otherwise.
