Awesome receiver. Have not had any problems so far.

Summary: Ok, after trying several receivers this one is excellent. First a bit of background of my setup for those curious. Receiver in the basement, speaker wire running upstairs to main floor as well as outside speakers. Therefore, I needed something that could be controlled remotely over wi-fi and also I love the multi-zone. This is replacing a Logitech squeezebox system since Logitech stopped making them and does not support them anymore. I wanted to simplify the setup.
Summary: I purchased this to replace an Onkyo that died. It has a ton of nice features, including Audyssey MultiEQ, which is superior to other 'auto setup' brands due to its subwoofer handling. Power is obviously not exactly as stated (NONE of them are!), but drives my Ohm fronts and Infinity center with ease. I like that you can trim the input level for each input. Built in Pandora and some other internet radio is nice, and works well.
Summary: I am running this receiver in a 7.1 home theater setup and it does all the decoding and amplification that I need. It replaced a high end AVR-4806CI model for comparison. It does up-scaling to 4K video to my Sharp TV and looks great. Highly recommended if you doesn't need WI-fi, otherwise you will need to purchase a WI-fi receiver for the Ethernet port. Highly recommended.
Summary: I am pretty satisfied with this receiver. Has the features I wanted except wifi but all my other components have wifi and as soon as I move my router and modem across the room I will run a cat 5 cable to the back of the receiver and that will take care of the Internet connectivity issue. I like the 7.1 surround and the Audesey speaker set up. I am not too crazy about the remote that came with the receiver butay it just takes getting used to bit mp deducts for that.
Summary: I had an older 5.1 surround sound receiver by Sony that didn't even have HDMI pass-through. After experiencing some odd sound issues with video games and quickly needing HDMI connectivity - I did my research and landed up with the AVR-E400 being the target receiver for my needs/price range. I considered all the AirPlay/Network functions as a bonus and was just hoping for a high quality receiver that was 4k ready for a future upgrade.
