Pros: Awesome 5.2 channel receiver! Easy setup and sounds great, especially with the Audyssey mic.
Cons: If you want to use the Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, it does not come with this model. There are adapters available, but you have to purchase them each individually (Wireless LAN & Bluetooth), which if you want to use both at the same time, takes up both of the 2 available USB ports (one i...
Summary: If it is under $200 and 5.2 is what you want go for it!
Pros: While I was hesitant when I purchased this last time this sub $200 deal was around due to some of the negative reviews I bit the bullet and gave it a shot. It was the right choice. I've had this over a year, followed all the firmware upgrade directions to the T and have had nothing but a stellar ...
Cons: None. Use a tablet to read the manual on-line. Go Green people!
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Yamaha home theater (HTR5930) since it lacked HDMI inputs and basically, my home theater components grew out of it. The decision was simple - went to Amazon and was looking at a receiver with the following "must-haves": 1. Under 90W per speaker output 2.
Summary: I purchased this because my older, rock solid, Denon did not do 3-D pass-through and I just got tired of that and sold it. This receiver does everything you need it to do basically, however, as others mentioned while it can support Wi-fi and Bluetooth, they're not included features.
Has most of what you ask for and expands if needed.

Summary: This receiver works well with regard to sound quality and it was very easy to set up. My only negative remark is that it seems to never really shut down completely. There is an audible humming noise coming from the unit after the power has been turned off.
