Summary: Absolutely beautiful sounding receiver. I actually liked this one so much I upgraded to the SR7008 because of XT32 Audyssey and I found a GREAT deal on an open box SR7008. The sound between the 7007 and 7008 is identical, I heard no difference at all.

Pros: Easy set up Very attractive and uncluttered Cool blue light around display Many HDMI to support all the extra equipment IPOD hook up worked with no problems Apple Airplay Internet ready Easy lite remote (small buttons) Great sound...makes my movies and music CD come alive. No issue so far like th...
Cons: Small buttons on the remote and some are hard to read. Not a big issue.

Pros: Good sound Easy to set up (walk through) Looks nice Lots of connection options Simple remote that is backlit
Cons: CD for owners manual Not sure about the claimed 125 watts No cooling fan(s) Options will not allow you to have full control (choose "this" option and you can no longer adjust "that") The app is terrible I just hope they have more software upgrades coming!!
