The mini-systems, the BASE-V30HDX and BASE-V20HDX, come with two stereo speakers and a sub, but offer five channels of regular 30W output (and a 60W sub output) if you want to hook up the full surround set.  Even without there's virtual surround support, along with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.  They'll go on sale in Japan on March 24th, priced at 74,800 and 64,800 yen respectively ($846 and $733 respectively).
