I would hope so. Ive actually had it a week and as easy as it is some of the terminology is quite different from the Onkyos, Dennons, and elites it took some getting used to. A few things missing like thx, DSX, and Sub eq. But after a weeks use I got very used to it and do not really miss those too much. I have a 9.2 set up and use Rotel amps for 5 of the channels. It really sounds great. I am not too fond of the main remote. I liked using my Onkyo remote and set it to run my tv, Cabel, and Blu-ray and it handled most of those functions. This remot so far has me basically beat just a real challange. I love the fact that I can stream video in addition to audio. Great with vudu netflicks etc. Has theyre latest menus and The vudu HD/X is as goot as my sony 790. I just tried analog audio from Pioneer elite 58av and it sounds terrific just two shannel. But the sacd over hdmi is just as great. This unit currently is quite a value at current prices. Hope I see more activity on this thread. As I never used the video processing on my other units I do not miss it and there have been absolutely no HDMI issues so far even with the darbee in line.
