Default New Onkyo HTIBs - HT-S6100 and HT-S7100

Damn, this is one badass home theater in a box!!!! The HT-S6100 should hit retail in the coming weeks and S7100 I would presume September. For connectivity, the HT-S7100 and HT-S6100 A/V receivers each feature four HDMI inputs, including support for 1080p video and DeepColor™ capability. There is internal audio processing for the latest Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio formats, making it possible to extract the full audio potential of the Blu-ray disc format. For video, the receivers include Faroudja DCDi Edge processing that is capable of upscaling all video inputs to 1080i resolution for output via HDMI, improving picture quality and simplifying the connection to HD video displays. So all your devices will connect to your tv with only 1 HDMI cable. Here's the the full press release by Onkyo. It's $699 for the 6100 and $799 for the 7100. The Onkyo HT-S7100 and HT-R6100 each include a version of Onkyo's exclusive iPod dock/charging units. The HT-S7100 features the A/V capable DS-A1XP dock, while the HT-S6100 includes the audio-only DS-A1L. Also the 7100 comes with front speaker stands. So if you don't want the speaker stands or care for outputing the video from your ipod than save the $100 and get the 6100.
