Bottom Line:   
A nice clean sounding reciever, with plenty of video and digital interfaces.
I use it as a pre for my main channels, and as the Amp for the center and rear speakers. As it was a replacment for my CDP connected directly to the power amp., it's DAC and sound is better. 12 years and 192Ksps/24Bit do good the audio.
It has somuch space in between the tunes, a lot of air and clearuty. Low's are tight and very presuiding. The sound stage with SACD as well with Audiophile CDs is fantastic. Almost to touch the players...with the eyes closed.
On video, it is as good as it could be. Cables HD is stuning. Also my upconverted DVDs look good. Still need to find out about sorround and Full HD.
They just going to make the deal better.
For my rating, sorry it got a 4/5 because the remote. For the value, it is a lot of reciever for the $ so it got a 5/5.

Bottom Line:   
This is by far the best recceiver I've ever owned. I upgraded from the Denon 3805. The dramatic improvement in sound quality will blow you away. As an IT guy I was interested in streaming my MP3's over my network, this is easy to do. The receiver hhas the ability to restore mp3s to their original sound. Usiing the HDMI the hook up is simplified. This is just a phennominal reeceiver..
