Summary: I purchased this unit on August 9, 2010 as a replacement for a DENON AVR-4802 7 Channel Surround Receiver which I gave to my cousin. Overall I was very happy with this model especially considering I paid less than $700 to replace a unit I bought new in 2001 or 2002 for over $2000.
Summary: I was looking to update a previous Yamaha receiver with one that has support for HDMI and Dolby True HD/DTS Master sound formats. With a nice coupon code, I was able to purchase for under $1k from 6th Ave Electronics. Here are my thoughts: First of all, the sound is terrific.
