Bottom Line:   
I bought this to replace an aging sound system in the bedroom. Denon S301 is ideal. It is small and compact, yet is has bass.
The strongest point of this system is that the sound is very clean and well-defined (do not know how to describe it better). It not not as good as a pile of separates and floor standing speakers, but it is the next best thing. It is way better than any shelf system I owned, including the $600 Sony system I had prior to this. I am comparing it to the shelf systems, because it is small, and that is what I bought it for. It has bass, and overall the sound is very clean.

Bottom Line:   
When comparing the Denon S-301 to any rival HTIB or 2.1 surround sound system it becomes very clear that there is absolutely no comparison; the Denon S-301 is in a class of its own.
THE S-301 IS THE COMPLETE PACKAGE! Even if it is an awfully expensive package...IT'S STILL WORTH IT!

Bottom Line:   
Overall, a great home-theater-in-a-box, which is a product category that I have entirely avoided until Denon released the S-301. Stunning picture and audio quality from such a convenient package, although its premium price-point means you could probably get similar or better performance from separate components. For my part, though, I was going for "my-wife-and-kids-can-figure-this-out" simplicity, and on that scale, the Denon scores big. I'm not sure that I understand Denon's choice of color for the system, but I suppose that's a fairly minor complaint. The silver/titanium color looks great on the main player, but, since nearly all TVs these days are black, having an all-black system (especially the speakers) would've made a lot more sense to me.
