I love the idea of these things. But I have yet to see one that has enough inputs to suit my needs.
Some of the newer ones have more inputs, but most are meant to be simply connected to your TV, which acts as your receiver.
If you really want inputs and flexibility, your best bang-for-the-buck is on a regular receiver.
