could someone please give me some insight on this topic i've been thinking about lately, but have THX lowered their standards within receivers? i mean, i remember back in the day when i use to wish i could own a THX receiver and use to only see them in high end receivers, but now im seeing them in receivers more and more and even low-mid end brand names. I use to hear about all the hype about THX certified receivers being best and how they had to meet some strict standards before being certified. So, does this mean that all these THX receivers that are certified legit and a worthy receiver? The price drop on some of these receivers are incredibly low and sometimes wonder if THX could ever be just a name that sells. Please explain what exactly makes a receiver worthy of carrying THX? Im not too knowledgable on this subject, but it just worries me that if I am purchasing a THX receiver am I just going think, "whats so big about THX?" Is THX a surround format or is it a certification that a receiver has met high standards? Is THX over hyped? thank you all for answering any of my questions.
