Summary: They don't make them like they used to. I had just purchased the Onkyo 809 which was wonderful unit when it worked. This 5890 will just about blow any other receiver in its dust. It is very powerful and clean sounding.
Summary: I purchased this receiver back in 05-06ish. Prior to purchasing this model. I owned the HTR-5240 "home theater in a box" model. I along with anyone who came over to watch movies, etc. Would love coming to my house, because of the theater system. From that experience i am a die hard Yamaha customer.
Summary: I won't go into all the terrific functions of this receiver, you can read them in the product description. What I will say is that the pure power and sound quality of this unit is exceptional.
Excellent sound and features, confusing functions and bad manual

Summary: Finally, someone put together a unit that does video and audio the way I want to do it. It may not be for everyone, but the basics I've mastered on this puppy in an evening exceeded my wildest expectations.
Summary: I have had this amp for a few years now. My old Sony amp fried, so Best Buy gave me $600 to play with, so I bought the most expensive amp in the store (this one at the time). It pushed my KX-12's, a Sony Center and Polk surrounds all through college.
