Amazing Sound for Home Theaters, especially in THX Mode
Thomas J. Morrissey, Amazon
18 July 2011
Summary: Have had the SC-35 for almost 2 weeks now, running in 5.1 THX mode (Axiom M80 mains, VP 150 center, QS8 sides and two 8-inch AR subs with a splitter) and the sound for films, especially action/sci-fi, is excellent; encompassing, full and vibrant. I'm now hearing small, delicate sounds I don't believe were present with my old Marantz SR7400.
