Good IF you don't use HDMI

  • Summary: This receiver is powerful and gives good sound. It can also take 2.1 and 5.1 channel sound and turn it into 7.1 surround sound (great sound). If you do not use HDMI cables then this is a good buy. If, however, you do use HDMI cables then this model is of little value.

Good sound, but not great for HD (1080i and up) video switching

  • Summary: I was very excited to get this and I was able to get it for an amazing price from Amazon.com. When I got it, I couldn't wait to get it set up. I connected it to my speakers from my previous receiver (which I'm selling) and hooked it into my projector, HD cable box, DVD player, and Nintendo Wii.

3 HDMI ports do NOT extract audio! Beware!

  • Summary: This receiver is pretty impressive on paper and visually by oogling at all the ports on the back. The biggest thing to note, I believe, is that the 3 HDMI inputs are "pass-through" and do not extract audio and play it through the speakers connected to the receiver!

1/2 HDMI

  • Summary: From the manual, page 29 "If you want to listen through the speakers connected to the AV receiver, in addition to an HDMI connection you'll need to make a separate analog or digital audio connection.
