Listening To A Movie Through Headphones

Has anyone listened to a movie through headphones on your receiver or pre-pro? If so, did you get good sound?
I do it on my laptop all the time (on planes)...great...
I used to do so from a Denon AVR5700 and it was very cool. But listening through headphone output on my Technics DVD-A10 is quite the treat, especially if the source has Dolby Headphone mode like Pearl Harbor; surround sound is very realistic w/ Dolby Headphone output.
