Super impressed

Great receiver so far. Picked it up in June and am still finding new features/settings. Huge amount of power. Auto room correction works perfectly. I wish the remote was fully back lit. Hard to see the small buttons in a darkened room. Also the on screen display is quite basic. Unit itself looks great. Screen can be dimmed. Has its own cooling fan! This is a big unit though. Make sure you measure before buying. Has a huge amount of connections available. As well as pre outs to run amps if more power is needed. App works well. Highly recommended!

It does it well

Works well. Plenty of volume. Plenty of options. Pros - Multiple zones works well, Airplay functions. Phone app works very well once you get the hang of it. Can play anything I want to anywhere I want from my phone. Cons - On screen control is very weak. You need the remote to control most things. Not this systems fault but will not stream video from I-tunes.

Great Receiver

Love the connectivity options, through the Network I can control all of the Zones through my iPad, or Samsung Galaxy with the free App which is pretty slick. It is a complex receiver and you need to know what you are doing, but its very flexible and the sound is great.
