Missed sale last week on Yamaha + Klipsch speakers + sub for, I think $945. Do you think it will be redone before xmas??? Looked recently at a Onkyo s6100 system at another retailer but sound was flat - no highs. Any comments on Onkyo systems?

I do not have a HTIB, but can recommend that you take a look at http://www.hometheatermag.com/advicefromtheexperts/907htibshoptips/index.html or http://www.hometheatermag.com/hometheaterinabox/118/index.html for a review ofHTIBs
Traditionally, Onkyo has had a great tuner and their overall sound quality, when matched with the right speakers, will provide you witha pleasing sound.

It's probably a good idea to not plug the sub into the receiver since the amplifier on the sub could demand more amperage than what the receiver is capable is delivering. The theory is that you want as big of a pipe of electricity available for your amplifiers so that they are never starved for current during loud passages.
I would recommend a separate dedicated circuit for your home theater equipment. It's amazing to see how many outlets are all connected to one circuit breaker. With a separate circuit your equipment will have plenty of current available. I currently run a medium size theater on 2 20 amp circuits. Everything except my 2 15" subs are on one one circuit and the 2 1000 watt amplifiers for the subs have their own circuit.
To reduce ground loops, its best to have everything on one circuit, but I have been lucky and do not have a ground loop issue with the subs on their own circuit.
Hope this helps...
