I began searching months ago for a surround-sound theater, and at first was against the HTIB idea. However, the installation for this unit was extremely easy. The setup took me about 35min from start to finish given that you have the tools ready. I love the wireless rear speakers (although not 'true wireless'), you can hide the wireless unit under the couch and still have the freedom of placing the side speakers nearby. The rear speakers aren't preset to be powerful, you'll need to spend the time in the setup to adjust the rear speakers to +5DB or +6DB and reduce the center speaker to about -3DB or -4DB. The center is almost too powerful off the initial run through. Overall I'm satisfied with it's performance - I'm a huge gamer, and I just ran an optical cable from my 360 into the unit and it sounds great playing Madden 09 or Call of Duty. I've only watched one movie and it looked like it up-coverted perfectly - mostly use a blu-ray and optical cable in as well. I would recommend this product - go to a local electronic store and listen to a few samples. Clean and clear sounds, however, if you run wireless internet, you'll most likely need to adjust the channel it's running on to something like 1 or 7 so it doesn't interfere with the wireless rear speaker frequency.
