Kudo's!!!!

I have always said that there are too many features as well as connections. I mean really, how many different componets do we really have to hook up. Most of my friends have a DVD/BD player & a game console & thats it...and only one output to the TV. Granted some people have more stuff, but most of us do not. My X-box 360 wirelessly connects to my PC, so everything there is accessable.

Wouldn't it be nice if when you got ready to buy a AVR, they took your order on what you needed & shipped that to you (you listening Onkyo?). But then, when you consider mass production, would it really drop the price...probably not. So here we are, all these connections with nowhere to go!

That pretty much says it all, mass production = low cost for the consumer. Some of the boutique brands "may" sound slightly better but at what cost to us?

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900
