I have a pair of them and I can highly rate them. As mentioned it is over priced compared to the competition. However it is very flexible in terms of configuration based on the input options. The auto correction as far as im concerned is useless, so I don't use it. It all depends on your application as you have to be careful where you plan to use it, especially with the dual driver configuration. You don't want any of the drivers firing into a wall.
One area that is not too user friendly is the tiny screen for configuration. I use the Subapp programme instead and do it via a pc, its not the most intuitive and if you want to change something its an overcomplicated process, compared to just doing it on the fly via a standard back panel on a competing product. That said and done , how often are you going to change things, unless you enjoy tinkering around. I control mine via rs232 via iRule so it gives me flexibility on the fly if I want to do something remotely, you can also do that via its ir input. You can create different programs and select them according to your source material and then select these instead of having to change a setting on the panel. Its also nice that with the trim volume you have a range of +/-6dB if you want to change something momentarily. The next time you turn it on , its back to the default internal volume setting. So if flexibility is high on your requirement, I would say go for it.
It is also a fairly compact package and the finish on it is first rate. What are you planning on using it for, stereo or HT?
