I've been thinking about it for a while and today I decided that it was pointless to have a DVD player and nice speakers and not have a receiver that has 5.1 capabilities. I was out farting around today and after I ate my brunch I said fuck it and drove to Best Buy and bought a Pioneer receiver. Holy crap, it sounds good. Band of Brothers has never sounded so good. The Lord of the Rings movies have never sounded so good. Football? It sounds good too (there were a couple of college games on and I checked them out for a few minutes). Now if I can just convince Wendell to go out to his car and get that 5.1 version of the Flaming Lips album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. I gots to hear that in 5.1 goodness.
