Summary: I have purchased this receiver as a replacement for a 20 year old Sony ( just time to upgrade ). My reasons for picking this receiver are 4k up convert , 3 D pass through , Blue tooth , powered zone 2 , phono input .
Summary: So, I'm pretty happy with this one. It's been a couple months and it hasn't broken. The sound is full and well rounded, but I did have it set up by a friend instead of using the auto-set-up. No complaints yet!!
Summary: Excellent sound, max flexibility with 5.1 sound, two additional zones, and inputs/outputs that can accommodate virtually any mix of home electronics gear,
Pros: Number of input/output options. Sound quality Ease of installation
Cons: Zones two and three can play only analog inputs, not digital. Required duplicating connections to get higher quality digital sound from my CD player and also allow it to be used for entertainment in Zones 2 and 3. Unit always turned on with Blu Ray input, although I wanted to have the default to ...
Summary: Excellent medium power receiver. Easy to setup using the on-screen display. Number of inputs/outputs are awesome, including HDMI in and out.
Pros: Powered/Unpowered Zone 2, Unpowered Zone 3. Second HDMI output. Easy to setup with on-screen display.
Cons: Any HDMI input component can not be directed to the powered Zone 2. Component selector button names are terribly small and are not back-lit making it impossible to read without excellent eyesight and a flashlight. (Reason for 4-star rating).
The Sound is great, powerful enough for a family use

Summary: The Sound is great, powerful enough for a family use. There is no user manual, just simple connection diagram. The remote control is very bad, you have to point really to the unit to get the command. Like the StandBy mode, you can watch your TV sometime without turning on the Receiver.
