Summary: This is not a bad unit, just difficult to operate. Audiophiles pass on, this is not for you. 20 years ago I would have loved this unit. Today I don't want to have to study owners manuals for two weeks, OK? This is a complicated piece of equipment, and if you don't want to go to school to learn how to use it, it will be the audio/video hell you've never imagined existed. I do not believe it's Denon, but any new sophisticated audio/vidio equipment.
