Summary: I upgraded more than a year ago from a RX-V800. This was a really nice upgrade. I choosed between 2 or 3 other brand. Finally choose this one for it's largest set of inputs (still has a phono jack that I use), for the remote function from an IPhone and for a better warranty. I have read many review on other brand about problem after a year or two. This receiver has a 4 years warranty. This tells me that the company is more confident about the reliabiliy of their product.
