Summary: This item right now is rare for its price point. Down the road their will be more 11.2 tunners but for now this is the best one for the price. I have liked Yamaha for a long time and tried Dennon but my ear is tuned for what Yamaha offers.
Summary: The RX-Z11 possesses a host of video-processing options. It can convert any analog video format to any other analog video format, even component to S-video or composite video. This is an unusual but useful feature when feeding adjoining rooms.
Summary: This is the 1st.Amp.that I have ever heard that has absolutely no h-i-s-s-s-s- I have not gone through all the features, but the ones I have done, work very well. I have not found it wanting in any area.
Summary: This critter is not for the technologically challenged! The remote is a great improvement over the one provided with the RX-Z9; but there are so many features to be learned that it can be daunting. However, for me, that's part of the fun!
Summary: This item is excellent. The sound quality is superior to other Yamaha systems Ihave had. The programming is a little difficult but once you know how to use the user interface on screen it is quick. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a high end receiver.
There's nothing out there that is better than this!

Summary: I purchased this receiver a few months ago. I wanted to get used to it before writing a review. I own several stereos from various makers but this is the tops! There is all most nothing that this receiver cannot do.
