Summary: We needed a high power amp to drive our power hungry speakers, as well as a way to integrate the speakers with our DVD and CD players and our home theater. After researching receivers, we chose the Yamaha. It is everything we needed, and we got the bonus of all the extra features that Yamaha provides. Two examples: the automatic venue-imitating feature is a great novelty and the room optimization set-up works flawlessly.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good audio, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Good video integration, Great Sound Quality
