    I like Yamaha a bit better than Denon, they just sound better to me, maybe because of better DACs imho.

    Me too, but can't afford the Yamahas I want. My 24 year old Yamaha sounds leaps and bounds better than my Denon for music.

    Ended up with an digitaol optical audio cable>DAC box.

    Sounds fine, hell of a lot better than the TV speakers at least.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Nowadays, with all the advancements in movie sound reproduction 2.1, 5.1 7.1 etc, you can really make watching a movie at home a real experience. At times it can be deceiving. I remember when I had my surround system working, you would sit there thinking that maybe I spent a little too much money or went a little overboard and not really notice what the system is bringing to the table. Then, turn off the surround speakers, center speaker and woofer and the difference is staggering.

    I know, and thank you.

    I'm no downhill.

    Having this big ass TV, I've spent a lot more than the previous 2 hours per-year in the living room in the past week.

    To me, sounds fine, I'm happy.

    I'll keep it in mind though, I do love my movies loud, and good surround is awesome.

    Better the sound the better the movie, maybe I've just heard too much bad surround sound.

    The last actual T.V. I owned was I think 15 inches, when I was still a kid. I paid for it with a summer job and used it to play video games in my room. I can't imagine what those 8-bit games would look like on 55 inches, with surround sound, but I bet it would be awesome.
