I have the Onkyo version. It is good for smaller spaces, doesn't block the TV. The sound is good with TV and other Video inputs, surround is fantastic, (using in a basement with 8' tiled ceiling). Music, is not so good though. I then bought the Definitive Technology W soundbar, which is fantastic musically, but it is very, very loud. The connection options are not as good as the Onkyo, and it blocks the sensor for the TV power. Also, a lot of the options are not available directly on the remote like the Onkyo, or implemented as well as on the Onkyo. I am thinking about putting back up the Onkyo for those reasons. I really miss that options like Night mode can be accessed direct from the remote unlike the DT which you always have to change via the onscreen menu. The Onkyo also seems to do a better job of attenuating the sound. I have DISH network, and the sound either soft or loud depending on the source. There is not that much difference in the quality of Night mode between the two systems to my ears. The Onkyo is just is not as loud as the DT. Though the DT is not as time consuming to setup as the Onkyo.
