Pros: 4 custom configuration quick select buttons that allow you to save settings for up to 4 sources (or one source, 4 different ways). Powered sub is just the right amount of bass. Front ports for quick hookup of a phone or aux device. Turn on volume setting. Power sub auto standby.
Cons: Big, but acceptable. Configuration is a tedious but rewarding process. Manual is limited (suggest downloading the full one at DENON website)
