Hello everyone, this is my first post. :b This forum looks like a great place, very informative and professional. I'm in the market for a HTIB in the $500-800 range. My requirements: 1. Small combined receiver/DVD/CD player 2. Silver in color (needs to match my 36" WEGA) 3. Dolby Digital EX/DTS/Pro Logic II decoding 4. Min. of 3 disks 5. Modern looking speakers 6. Min. 5.1 (think this goes w/o saying) I spent my first 4-5 hours on this forum search previous post regarding the subject and it seems as if everyone suggests the Onkyo S770 (or S870). The system looks like a winner, however, it just doesn't suit the needs of the setup I'm looking for. The receiver and DVD player just take up too much space, and the speakers are too "book shelf" like. The design of the room is more modern, sleek, and simplistic --> so I want the MTIB to do the same. I understand that I'm giving up ultimate sounds to meet my needs, but that is something I'm willing to sacrific. Before coming to this forum I was pretty sure I was going to get a Sony Dream System DAV-FR8, however, the reviews have been less than flattering. I'm looking for some with a similar look, the DAV-FR10W w/ the infrared rear speakers is tempting too (how much sound is sacrificed with a setup like this?). The other HTIB I was looking at was the Samsung HT-DS660T due to only having the 2 single front speakers (continues on w/ the less is more theme of room). However, I haven't seen any decent reviews and I'm worried it will get similar reviews to the Niro 1.1 which has problems giving you that 360° sound. Anyone have experience with this HTIB? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
