Summary: Item came in 5 days and was a serious upgrade to my other old AV unit. Your rear speakers have to be wireed directly to the unit or they will not sound right. All in all Yamhaw with Dolby Labs invented the home theater system.
Summary: I just had to upgrade my Sony A/V STR-970. I needed HDMI in a big way. Downsizing to a smaller entertainment center, I really needed to clean up a few secret treasures concealed by my bigger cabinet. So, the hunt was on for the best A/V Home Theater receiver for the buck.
Summary: I ordered this system and received an upgraded one, which was 840 watts instead of what ever this receiver is...this thing is a beast, and I still have not been able to turn it up all the way because it is so loud
Summary: THIS RECEIVER HAS THE "EASY FUNCTION" SET BUTTONS IN THE FRONT FOR PEOPLE NOT "TECHNICALLY INCLINED" FOR AN UNDERSTANDING OF DIGITAL RECEIVERS. IT BASICALLY HAS "IDIOT BUTTONS" IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW YO READ THE DIRECTIONS TO THE MANUAL. VERY SIMPLE AND COMES WITH A UNIVERSAL TYPE OF REMOTE.
Great Transaction - great delivery I was pleased with the units performance

Summary: I bought this unit to upgrade to HDMI. I had a Yamaha unit that perfored well but was not equipped for High Definition. It seems to be a great and flexible unit. It performs great in my home theater setting.
