  • Summary: Bought this open box and I absolutely love it. The sound is fantastic and has a much smaller height than the typical receiver. Major surround settings and supports a ton of different setup options. Setup was easy and drive my canton small home theater speakers with ease.

  • Summary: So finally this thing was released earlier this month. And by the gods, it does exactly what I had hoped it would do -- allow me to pair an optical input with an HDMI source. I can now run one of my computers seamlessly to my 62" DLP with full SPDIF audio! All thanks to this little guy.
