Summary: Does anyone make good receivers anymore? I bought this receiver a few years ago from a local audio store to replace an older Pioneer receiver that is still going strong after 15 plus years of use. The reason that I replaced the Pioneer was because this one had HDMI inputs and was the only brand that was sold by this store. I had some handshake issues but was able to overcome them and thought I had one of the better brands.
Summary: I purchased this amp as part of a professionally designed home theater system. The system designer set it up for me and I had to take very careful notes to be able to operate it once it was installed and set up. I began having problems almost immediately. The unit has a mind of its own and changes functions arbitrarily. It also causes an echo in any Blu-Ray movie I tried to play. The documentation is poor and is no help in figuring out what's what.
