Summary: Bought this unit to replace my Denon AVP- A1HDCI, It was delivered today. Hooked it up, turned it on and no video. To say I'm pissed would be an understatement. No more Denon/Marantz for me. Will now look at Anthem and Emotiva.
Summary: 10/23/15 Received the 8801 yesterday and I set it all up this evening including the room correction with audyssey. I'm playing movies from an Oppo 105D to the 8801 and to a XPR-5 amp connected with XLR cables. XLR cables I use are Gotham GAC-4 ultra pro. Excellent excellent solid cables.
Summary: Incredible pre-amp, exceeded expectations. The depth of performance from this unit is remarkable. - sound quality - ability to adjust sound parameters - accepts SACD multi-channel through HDMI - internet radio is priceless - accepts USB directly and played 196/24 files perfectly - plug router into...
Summary: Mighty nice pre amp, does it all. The new audio processing chip set is perfection and outshines my previous Integra 9.9 in most areas. This stays cooler, the Interga (Onkyo premium) ran very hot (for a pre-amp, come-on!). I found the set up very simple, the surround is far superior.

Summary: I owned one of these for 2 years--and that's all I got out of it. Now I have no audio except a very faint "whomp whomp whomp" sound that cycles about every 2 seconds. Support? forget about it, there is actually no possible way to get any meaningful help at all. You are warned.
Superb Product For Audio/Theater Enthusiasts And You Won't Be Disappointed!!

Summary: This preamp/processor is so amazing I bought two!!! One for our theater room and one for our family room. You get high-end fabulous sound with complete connectivity (love the balanced XLR outputs and trust me - if you have balanced power amps you're crazy to hook them up any other way).
