I have owned a couple of these units in the houses I have owned. They are top quality and really keep your house clean without floor speakers. Like any switcher you choose; its all in the quality of the speaker and whatever is pushing it. Might I recommend BOSE or CV's in your ceiling. JBL's will do too. (more affordable) I have thrown as much of a 500w Sony System at mine with all channels open. Its an awesome movie night!
