Summary: I bought this to replace my Polk RMDS-1 receiver, specifically for the pre amp outs. This unit had an incredible sound and is clear at high volume. The only negative is it gets very hot even though I am only using the pre amp out. DLNA certified is a double bonus for me too.
Summary: Bought this receiver to replace my Sony STR-DA55ES in order to take advantage of the HDMI and internet options this unit offers. HDMI passthrough works fine as well as access to my media on a DLNA compliant NAS drive which contains my iTunes and other media libraries. I have noticed one quirk with the HDMI passthrough. I currently have two HDMI devices, a Sony Blu-ray and a DTV HD DVR.
