Pros: Good connectivity Quality picture and sound Easy setup Two zone operation
Cons: Sound programs are not very diverse, you only end up using a select few. No support for Spotify,Rdio or other popular music services. Only Pandora Rhapsody and Sirius and their own radio. They recently updated software for next series of receivers to include spotify but excluded this receiver, po...
Summary: Look for something that works 100 percent. Do your research otherwise you will be frustrated like I am. Make sure you note down all your requirements, check manual and then buy. Otherwise you will be disappointed like I am.
