Options Options


read manual, much to this system than meets the eyes but not for the weak hearted in reading manuals

Many many options ; This is a jack of all systems ; Handles it all from Gaming, Classical, Heavy Metal, to Star Wars: New Hope on a soft note ; If you want to get the maximum for the minimum dollar this is the best ; See cons

If you are a die hard audiophile you will like this but if you really need serious power I would recommend the next level up. System has a nice smooth system for those that enjoy the quality but if you want some serious SPL or harder bass I would not...

Truly Wonderful!


I was a little concerned that firmware updates might slow me down when turning the unit on (as in my LG BluRay player) but so far it has not been an issue at all. I understood I had to choose between using the internal 6th & 7th amps for Zone 2...

Every time you buy something new, there are "surprises?" Well, no exception here - except that all of the surprises have been good news! I love the connectivity to both the internet and my own music/video/picture libs on my PCs. Pandora has been...

Might be an issue for some - no wi-fi. But my house is completely wired and I prefer the performance of hard-wired anyway ; The on-screen navigation when connected to a PC in your home network is a little clumsy through the remote. A little k/b would...

Wish I could give it 6 stars!


Best sounding receiver I've ever heard. No doubt much more expensive receivers will sound better, but this is great, and sound quality is what I was most interested in. It seems to do a good job with video as well, but that's less important to me. It...

Excellent receiver


I would recommend this unit to anyone. An owner on here was concerned with the background picture if your video source is not on or you are listening to a non-video source. You can change the picture to a grey background in one of the menus.

Huge improvement compared to my old Phillips surround sound in a box set-up. Haven’t gotten my new speakers yet and wasn’t expecting much difference. I was blown away by how much different the old speakers sound with the new receiver

Complicated device to setup and the instructions are lacking on explanations for some of the features. Just makes me wonder what I’m missing out on

Very pleased so far


I think the web interface would be especially useful for using Zone 2 from another room without immediate access to the receiver. The remote has a switch on it to allow you to control the receiver on Zone 2 through RF I believe, but the web GUI shows...

Great sound. This is my first HT system and this receiver is being used to drive Polk speakers in a 5.1 setup. I have the RTi A3 bookshelf speakers with CSi A4 center, FXi A4 surrounds, and the DSWPRO 550wi sub. Since it's my first HT, I don't have...

Tiny gripe that may even have a work around. The receiver throws up a stock screen of a piano when the source selected is not driving the input actively. So for instance, if you have selected your BluRay player but haven't turned it on yet, the...

Awesome Reciever


Wow, this unit looks to be well built and heavy. So many options, it's a bit of an overkill for what I need. Using this to power a sub and rears and klipsh speakers. The sound is amazing. Tons of HDMI inputs for all your devices. I have everything...
