The Denon AVC-2920 with HDMI and 1080p support will suddenly make hooking up a full-quality 7.1 surround sound setup a piece of cake. The nice thing about HDMI cables is that they
re as easy to plug in is a FireWire cable, and they carry audio and video at the same time. Now all of that high-fidelity visual and auditory goodness will be coursing through this receiver that sells for $953. Someday all receivers will be made this way.
