Bottom Line:   
Just bought the HTR-5540 becuase Best Buy as usual doesn't have what they advertise and generally suck. This unit appealed to me it now includes Pro Logic II which is a big plus but drops the binder posts for your mains, front a/v inputs and I believe some digital inputs. It does come with one optical digital in and one Digital coax in. The speaker wire connectors are adequate for anyone without top of the line speakers and 12 gauge wire and do accept banana plugs but I question the efficiency of using them with this particular setup. Puts out great clean stereo audio. No noticeable white noise when using optical in, sounds wonderful and no hang-ups as some reviews have mentioned when using CD's and optical ins. Still trying to get everything setups for movie use. I've complicated things as I'm only using 2 mains (3-way technics sb-cr77's) and don't have any surround speakers yet. Seems to be a great product for the price and drops the bells and whistles no one uses anyway. I do wish it had s-video and a/b speaker switching but oh well, I lived without them before,
