Great receiver for the price
Once the set-up was done, the family gathered around the receiver to listen to some streamed music from my media server and to watch a movie. While I did end up tweaking the levels set by Audyssey, the audio was very enjoyable. After running it non stop for over 2 hours, I was also pleasantly surprised to note that the receiver was not appreciably hot. Internet streaming is also really convenient (it works with a minimum of fuss, even with the TV monitor off) and has the usual staples such as Pandora, Spotify, and Last.fm, as well as my new favorite, Aupeo. I was also impressed by the small touches - such as the ability to dim the display. If there is one complaint, I wish they'd put one of the 6 HDMI inputs on the front panel - especially given the convenience in connecting the occasional laptop or camcorder. Overall, this is a very capable receiver, and I'm very thrilled with its performance.
