Good for a basic home theather but don't expect much

Summary: I bought this hoping to integrate my TV and Xbox360 (which has a built in DVD) and it was probably a little bit of a waste of money. I was turned on by the Ipod integration but the Xbox360 actually has the same ability. The system is now my receiver for my Xbox360 and doesn't go through my TV which is alright but would be great if it was for TV and Xbox. I live in a decent size apartment and the wattage is good but not great.
Summary: I just received my Denon S-101 from Amazon. Following is my advice if you're considering buying the system: - This system looks amazing - the design is very modern. The iPod feature works well and the DVD is responsive. However, you are buying an audio system not a piece of art, which takes me to my next point. - This system audio is very poor. The surround effects are not convincing at all. And when you play music in stereo it doesn't sound natural.
