Bottom Line:   
Had this system for about 8 months and love it. The sound is fantastic, especially in DTS. I've been using an older pair of speakers for the front, gave the others to my Dad, and it still sounds great. The only problem that I do have is that it gets extremly hot. Not sure if there is a cause for concern about it, but have not had any problems with it so far.

Bottom Line:   
This is a very good entry level system for someone trying to get into hometheater for the first time. The setup is pretty easy and the overall system is cheap. If i am not mistaken, the receiver used in this system is very similar to the Technics sa-dx940. This is a pretty good receiver other than the fact that there are no coax digital inputs. (There are places however that sell coax to optical converters) It puts out alot of heat but as long as it has plenty of breathing room, it should be fine. I also have the sa-dx950 and sa-dx1040. These recivers put out alot of heat also. This just seems like something panasonic/technics recievers are prone to do. Overall a good system.

Very good system...

Btw, does anyone know how to mod the built-in fan to operate directly instead of only on high power level ??
