Summary: I was able to hook it up by myself ( I am not that great with electronics ,but I followed the manual).I have it already for 7 years and using with my cable DVR , blueray/dvd player, 70 inch HD Sony and my Polk speakers(5.1).Couldn't be happier.I would buy it again.
Summary: I bought Bose Acoustimass 16 speakers to go with this reciever. The set up took over 5 hours to hook up. Then it took couple of hours of teethig problems like bad conncetions etc to get the caliberation done. Then the sound level was very low at the default settings.
Summary: This product has worked out great for me. I have it hooked up through some polk monitor speakers and the sound is great. The video upconversion for evey device through HDMI is also wonderful. So nice not having to change inputs on my TV.
Summary: Nice Receiver, all my component hooked up easily. Manual not to bad, but it can't cover every component. Everything works great, I'm very happy with its functions. The 2nd zone is awsome to have. Souround sound in the livingroom and tuner in the other rooms.
Summary: I am a Yamaha fan by history but they did not have the features that this one does in this price range. Its easy to setup and works with HDMI great. No complaints or problems at all. I am VERY impressed with this product, check C/Net's review of it you will see...
Summary: I've only had this unit about a month, and I'm still getting the setup tweaked, but so far this AVR rocks! It has every sort of input/output you could want and is quite configurable. Read the manual carefully, or you'll get no sound here and there.
