A versatile 5.1-channel AV Receiver with HD Audio decoding, 1080p-compatible HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel (4 in/1 out), new on-screen GUI, front panel USB input, iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth compatibility, Cinema DSP 3D, YPAO and SCENE buttons.
Just replaced my HTR-5760 Yamaha with this unit. HDMI setup and auto setup was a breeze, added some banana plugs and THX monster Wiring to my 3 Speaker setup from Athena Technologies. Only feature I miss was the direct bass crossover control rather than just a Large or Small speaker selection. Remote doesnt glow in the dark either, which isnt a huge deal 99% of the time, but was a surprising change from the HTR series remotes. Sound is super and would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have the need or budget for a 7.2 or 7.1 Receiver.
