Summary: The first receiver that I purchased through Amazon was defective. It had screeching noises and would cut out the the picture from time to time. I returned that one with the thought of not buying the unit again. I was tempted by a cut price at a local big box store and decided to give it another shot. This unit worked well and is now installed in my gameroom with no problem whatsoever.
Summary: Overall a good receiver. The software takes some getting used to. I have a little problem with the HDMI switching but that is negligible. I love the sound that comes from my surround system. I am using the Energy True Classic 5.1 speakers.
