    This look like a sweet deal, it meets all my requirements and is under $350. Does anyone have any experience with this model? How does the DVD-A and SACD sound? Thanks.

    10% thd at 1khz is the biggest problem. This means a weak amp. No where near the claimed 100 wpc. I think it also has a passive sub since it weights only 11 pounds. Those two, plus a lack of expandability are the main reasons why true htib's aren't very popular around here. I'd say pass on it. You can piece together a system around the Pioneer 578 for not much more money.
