Summary: I can't praise the unit highly enough. When it was alive. I does run warm but with decent ventilation it seemed fine. I have had mine for 2 years and now have 3/4 dead HDMI inputs. Not exactly dead but not ideal either. Still working fine via component but that's not the point. I selected this product for multi-HDMI ability. Oh well, at least I know for next time that 1080p upscaling ISN'T worth the extra money. Sound is great.
Excellent Audio, Video will force you to Compromise

Summary: Thumbs up on the Audio Section. The Audissey Setup is Simple and the Dynamic EQ is very Effective for listening well below reference level, which is most of the Time for normal use. (It runs HOT, but with an open rack it is not an issue). Decoded Lossless audio Tracks ( Dolby True HD & DTS HD) are nothing short of stunning... Thumbs down on the Video Section- HDMI will not pass Black below Black & White above white ( Checked with DVE pluge & reverse gray ramps).
