At that price, you could buy it and not be able to loose much money on it once all settles out and it would give you all the new formats, they also have some new receivers sporting all these goodies as well on the cheap!
You are right. I believe Onkyo as well has an 805 receiver with the 1.3 and HDMI inputs and outputs. But, the Integra gear is a step up. Now, I guess I`ll wait for Andrew or jerry to review these new combo players
