Lastly, how do you go about integrating the .2? (I can look up more details later, just looking for a layman term response for this.)

The HK 1700 looked nice (aesthetically) and I almost ordered it on 12/31 until I noticed it was severly lacking inputs (HDMI is ok but for devices that only have component out such as the Wii or legacy SACD /
DVD-Audio players etc. the HK is lacking in inputs (not a single component input as just one example).
It turned out to be blessing in disguise because the 60+ lb high end Newcastle R-972 went on sale (for one day) for $299 shipped with no tax.

Thanks for the reply. Rep'd. I tend to agree with most of what you said. My home theater is 'only' 5.2ch but I have never once heard a complaint out of anyone who's experienced it. To me, the .2 (two 15" subs) are more important than the two additional surround speakers. lol

Anyway, people use networking to stream music, pictures, videos, etc. But if you have Apple TV or PS3 or (insert streaming device here), it's really not necessary.
It's just like laptops - people say "I MUST have an i7 processor with 16 GB RAM because it's the best!" when really all they do is surf the web and an i3 would be just fine. Marketing makes us think we need more than we really do.
I mean, how many people honestly have a 7.2 surround setup in their house? Yet all mid to high end receivers have that as standard. I'm guessing none of them are married...

|OstrichSak||So, dumb question from someone with four Onkyo receivers in use currently... what do you use the network functionality for on an A/V receiver? Config setup? Streaming audio?|
