I have used this receiver for several years now and can atest to the fact that aside from not having the latest HDMI capabilities, it does just about everything else right as far as home surround sound duties. It has true robust and clean power output, more than enought analog and digital inputs, even has a phono input. Remote is easy and intuitive to use, and programmable. The number of surround modes is impressive, and I feel Yamaha does them better than anyone. Great THX Select, Dolby Digital EX, DTS EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, etc. I have bought and sold in the retail business Yamaha, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sony, JVC, Integra, Denon, Nakamichi, Technics, Elite, etc., and the Yamaha receivers always rank at or near the top of their respective catagories. The only line I feel bests the Yamaha in sound quality, by a narrow margin, is the Nakamichi receivers. However, they do not have the capabilities of the Yamaha in connections, surround options and system control. Bought mine for $150.00 or so used, can't go wrong if this unit does all you need.

Strength:

Loaded with processors, surround environment processors, and connections. Powerful. Good sound. Ability to have up to 9 speakers on the amp - GREAT for those who like to have reference speakers. I'm using Zone 2 for my dining room, and Zone 3 for the backyard with a separate amp. System allows for separate source to Zones.

Weakness:

Manual could benefit from an index. However, I find going to the Yamaha site and pulling up the manual to be best because you can search out any word. Manual could also benefit from a rewrite for more information and clarity. Zone 2 and Zone 3 lights come on indicating power to the Zones, when in fact I have neither speakers nor power to the Zones. Pressing "Pure Direct" (the unprocessed setting for the highest fidelity sound - though flat) seems to turnoff those lights which stay off when I switch back to one of the processed sound formats. This reoccurs often. Had the same problem with the headphones light coming on, but it has not reoccured.

Based on my research the best receiver per dollar on the market.
