Good morning everyone! I hate to make my first post an "is xxx good" post, but I'm afraid I need to. I'm trying to get away from the HTIB setup, but still have limited space and budget, not to mention the WAF (see, I'm learning already!!). I was wondering if the Sony AVD-C70ES which is a receiver/amp/dvd all-in-1 was a good alternative? I have no idea as to speakers yet. I still have quite a bit of research to do on that end. Thanks in advance for all your help.
