Summary: Exactly what I wanted and the price was great. Fits in my wall unit perfectly and sounds great.This is the only slim line surround receiver on the market at this time made by a company that makes other equipment that I also happen to own. The seller I will keep and buy again if the ocassion arises.
Works great with powered speakers (Def Tech Mythos ST)

Summary: A small size was a consideration as I only had 6' height to fit an AVR into. However, I was willing to buy a new cabinet if need be because I wanted a good fit for my speakers. The mains are Definitive Technology Mythos ST and the center is a Def Tech CLR 2300. All have powered subwoofers/woofers, so the 50 watts per channel was way more than enough to drive the mids and tweeters in a very large room (~8,000 cubic feet).
Excellent product, super easy to setup and integrate.

Summary: So far I like nearly everything about it. The HDMI switching capability, the sound, the menus are clear, and the auto-setup of the sound levels for all channels was very easy using the included mike. Much better than my older Denon AVR1800 and seems to drive the speakers better even though it's rated lower.
