Bottom Line:   
Well, after owning this beast now for 5 years as the original owner and originally powering Klipschorns for front's and Hersey II's for rears with a KLFC7 for a centre and Velodyne FSR18, it has more than enough power, and to think I was going to run 5 MA700's off of it and use it as a pre-amp, why? I still run Klipsch Heritage up front with LaScala's and the rest, best A\V Receiver I have ever had, next best was early 1990's and the Pioneer VSX-D1S, and there was a brute!

I don't care for 7.1, quite happy in 5.1 thanks...doin well....Merry Christmas Everyone....or Happy Holidays...your guess....

Bottom Line:   
I am in the business and have done quite a few installations.. This Receiver is one of the finest on the market today.. When playing a CD it sounded as if my customer had purchased krell equipment.. We also tested it with home theater and felt as if we were in a movie theater. Great Product AAAAAA Product...

Bottom Line:   
I finally received this unit after a couple of months of searching. I am extremely happy with this receiver : It looks fantastic (gold), sounds brilliant, and has an absolutely phenomenal remote.

This is a major improvement over the DSP-A3090 which was already pretty impressive. Surround effects now steer so much more precisely and sound so much more natural and unforced.

No offence to those who have chosen otherwise, but I am glad that I "made the break" from the bells and whistles home theatre components. I found that all that is really necessary is simply Dolby Digital, DTS and Stereo. With this unit, you get the benefit of brilliant separates quality sound instead of the bells and whistles. Very similar sound quality to my PM84 MarkII.

Couldn't be happier...

This is the best receiver I ever had in my life. The sonic representation is beautyfull. This amp is very very powerfull, then you get crisp clear sound with alot of bass, but not a boomy one...
All the connections you need is on the back of the baby and all is in gold.
