Summary: Most annoying thing is that I hooked up through HDMI for 2 of my components however this receiver requires you too also hook audio connections as well if using the HDMI (I used optical). What the hell is the deal with that?
Summary: I bought this receiver to use as a preamp in my system. I based my decision on information as stated on the Pioneer web site, and the attractive price compared to some of the other options I considered. This receiver does have a number of good features, but has one serious flaw.
