My experience has been the opposite of your opposite..:dumbcrazy:

The reason I generally don't recommend HK is that I've had 2 receivers fail on me. There wasn't anything odd about my setup, lightning didn't strike, etc, but two failed, one taking out my front left and right speakers. :teeth:

I don't think that any particular receiver is going to sound "better" than another at a given price point, and agree that it's the feature set and construction that should be examined/reviewed.
Its true that there have been some HK receivers that had to be replaced, but I've only had a Sony blow out a speaker.
But when it comes to sound HK certainly works better with my JBLs than any other brand I've ever used (a much warmer sound than the others).
Plus, the HKs amps are under rated in their power specs. Denons, on the other hand, are over rated, in my experience.

Generally, surrounds should be about 5~6 ft above the floor, so they fire over the tops of the seat backs.
