Summary: This receiver kicked ass.............while it lasted. My initial research showed this receiver to be an outstanding value. About two and a half years later it was a dead value! I first started having issues with the audio just cutting out. Turning off the receiver and turning it back on solved this problem. The main issue was that the audio cutting out was intermittent. This went on for several months.
While this item worked well, it burnt out after 18 months

Summary: I purchased this item and had it working superbly for over a year and a half. One day, after about 30 minutes of use, the unit clicked off and began to flash its standby light. When I pressed the power button, the unit sparked and I could smell burnt plastic and silicon; it was done for. Worked well while it lasted. Good thing it has a 2 year warranty.
Great sound but horrible video processor when dealing with 1080p/24 material

Summary: For the audio side of things, the 707 is fantastic. Seriously, it's a superb piece of kit in this regard. However, you can read plenty of reviews about how great it sounds, so I'd like to highlight a problem I have found with the video side of things. Bottom Line: If you send the 707 1080p/24 material over HDMI, the 707 will introduce intermittent video stuttering or frame drops.
