    I know that this is new for 2002 but...
    Has anyone had a chance to take a look at the STR-DE985 receiver from Sony?
    I am considering this setup for my new HT along with the SAV-E535H for the speakers. I had considered the new Kenwood system, but I am beginning to think that this system will not meet up to its previous year models (at least from the initial specs I have seen). Since a lot of folks in here have recomended getting separate components away, I thought that this looked to be a good setup?
    I got the following price quote from www.video-direct.com;
    $349.00 for the receiver
    $289.00 for the 5-piece speaker set
    $59.00 for a 6th speaker (for 6.1)
    Anyone ordered anything from this place?
    Are theses prices pretty good?
    They seem to be lowest I have found but may not have all the info.
    If anyone has suggestion for a comparable setup please let me know. Thanks
