Summary: BEWARE - if you have a Samsung plasma. It's a known issue that touching/connecting the HDMI cable from the TV to the chassis of the Denon will cause buzzing in all the speakers. This is not a ground loop problem.
Summary: Very painless setup. Updated software and it only got better. GUI on screen impressive. visually shows your source channels and active speakers. Loaded with features and so far everything works perfect. Plenty of power and after Audyssey set up sounds awesome for movies.
Summary: So far I'm very happy with this receiver. It sounds great once I was able to get it all setup. I'm not complaining about the general setup because in order to get the best sound, the setup process is necessary.
