Bottom Line:   
This worked alright for about a year for me then simply stoped decoding in 5.1. Now Im stuck and have to buy either a new stereo or DVD player that both work fine just to decode 5.1! Thats what I get for buying technics.

Bottom Line:   
The original 300 model did not decode DD sound very well at all....I returned the model for a much better Yamaha decoder....when the 500 model came out with the DTS decoder,
I gave it a shot due to the price I was able to buy it for which also included a receiver...$240 open box buy at Best Buy. The 500 model does an outstanding job in both DD and DTS decoding. Definitely performs as well as my high priced Yamaha!!! I would highly recommend the 500 model and advise all to stay away from the older 300 model.

Bottom Line:   
Overall, I'm very happy. I found this unit for $99 from Crutchfield.

Only complaint I have is that the stereo pass through doesn't pass signals to my subwoofer (when hooked up in 6 channel mode to my rx)

Also, I was experiencing intermittant audio dropouts with the optical digital input; not sure if this was with the decoder, the DVD player, or the cable. Either way, when I switched to the COAX, I was good.

Bottom Line:   
This processor is the best of it's category. It's so easy to use and it's compatible with other technics remote control. The soud processing is almost perfect comparing with built-in processor/receiver. For me, I couldn't have made a better choice.
