    "Too tired to lift a finger and grab that Uber to the theater? Is ten dollars a month breaking the bank for a MoviePass? Boy have I got the answer or you. The Yamaha + Sony Digital Cinematic Sound brings SIX 150-watt, theater-grade speakers directly into your living room. Featuring EIGHT cone woofers and even a dome tweeter to boot, you may never leave your house again. Since I brought this puppy home I've hosted more movie nights than I can count. I control the whole setup right from my iPhone thanks to the dock. Friends assume I must've spent thousands, but the whole setup cost me just $800 on Amazon -- for a 7.1-channel system, that's peanuts!"

    "Shew. It looks like this thing is at the apex of home theater systems. The control panel appears as if it could control SpaceX rockets. However, who is Onkyo? I cannot find the country of origin for this system. I would hope that Dolby would not allow their speakers to be attached to any rinky-dink system that some manufacturer can toss together. This system costs $1,300. Out of 355 reviews, only 61% give it 5 stars. I would definitely do detailed research on it before handing over any money."
