Summary: For the past half dozen years I've been slowly upgrading my stereo equipment, piece by piece. This was the last major piece because, frankly, I expected it would make the least difference relative to what it replaced (Sony HT receiver, 80 wpc). But at this reasonable price, figured I couldn't go far wrong. I've had the unit for about a month now, and it has made a much bigger improvement than I expected in my sound.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Lots of clean power
