Summary: This sounds fantastic. It replaced a not very old Onkyo. Now the Onkyo is replacing a very old JVC. This system is very easy to set up. The remote is a must so try to buy one with it other wise it will cost you another $60. It has such great sound even our dogs look around to see where the noise is coming from.
Summary: A great receiver! I've tried Onkyo 607, Yamaha rxv 665 & 765, Hk 254 & 354, and this receiver blows them away. It has as much if not more bass as Onkyo, as clear as HK, upscales like a blue ray player. It does almost everything. I purchased on internet For $619 shipping included. I wish I would of purchased this first and there wouldn't have been any reason to spend the last 3 months going thru receivers.
