Just bought the Onkyo HT-S770B after WEEKS of waiting and waiting for money. It was like Christmas day on Wednesday. The system is just amazing. I watched Matrix Reloaded after I hooked up my DVD player with an optical cable and made sure the receiver was in Dolby Digital EX mode. I had the system cranked upto 60, near max, and there was NO distortion at all. 1000 watts!!
