Bah! me DSotM sounds much better sourced from the original quadraphonic source(s) to DTS...and why in the world they still haven't (re)released WYWH in surround is a mystery to me. If any album should be floating around your head it's definately that one.

Keeping on the thread subject though, I have a Yamaha receiver and am happy with it. I haven't looked at receivers for about two years now so I'm out of the loop, but one thing I'd make sure I could do is set the balance on each speaker with the remote "on the fly." Must be my hearing, or the way different things are mixed but I usually find myself either raising or lowering something while I'm listening. Either the voices are too soft in a movie compared to the special effects or the rear channels don't envelope me into the "experience" as much as I'd like.
