I think it was $1699 back when it was released and I thought it was a bit overpriced back then but now… At this price this could be a good buy.

One word: underpowered. Just 110 wattage per channel and just 7.2 channels. Not for me.

You are right, sort of. This is a bit underpowered but it works amazing well in smaller rooms. Believe me, I’ve heard it and nothing can compare to it. It’s better than models that are way more costly.

This particular model was an innovator in an industry where innovations don’t come that often. Sonny came up with a way to replicate the feel of a 7.1 setup by only connecting 5.1 channels. What this means that you can have this in a small room without the additional two speakers and you’d still get the same effect. I don’t know if you realize but this is a pretty big deal. At $1499 I would totally grab it.

What they did was called phantom channels and yes, it’s pretty amazing. And I do agree that $1499 is a sweet deal especially since it’s fully compatible with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
