Summary: For the price I was preparing to be blown away by details. I really am not. I am biwiring Monitor Audio GX 100 stand mounted. While the sound is better than my Yamaha receiver, I know that it is not better for the price (HTIB receiver.) I A/B it to the Marantz SR5007. The bottom end has more detail, but the top end is the same. There are tons more connectivity options in the Marantz and the Marantz has a DAC also.
