I love the fact that my home entertainment system is two boxes. Myth
and my receiver (well, and the VCR that my wife refuses to let go of,
even though its main function is to collect dust). No more DVD
player, CD player, tape deck, etc etc. I hate the "entire wall of
living room dedicated to entertainment system" look.
