Here are a few beefs I have with the TR-NR1010s:
If you connect an iPod or iPhone to the USB port, no sound will be output from the headphones jack.
I don't like that restriction!
Also, the "Whole House Mode" only supports analog audio.
I don't like that if I'm using HDMI out on Zone 2!
Not enough speaker terminals, for example:
* If the “Speakers Type(Front)” setting is set to “Bi-Amp” or “Digital Crossover”, Powered Zone 2 cannot be used.
* When the “Powered Zone 2” setting is set to “Yes” and Zone 2 is turned on, the surround back and front high speakers cannot be used.
* When the “Powered Zone 3” setting is set to “Yes” and Zone 3 is turned on, the surround speakers cannot be used.
* IntelliVolume does not work for Zone 2/3.
*The Auto Standby function does not work when Zone 2/3 is on.
*Much heavier than other AVRs: 50.7 lbs (23.0 kg) compared to Denon @ 3313CI 26.5lbs, Pioneer SC-67 @ 38.4 lbs, Yamaha RX-A2020 @ 37.7 lbs
One thing that is nice is that the Main zone and Zone 2 can listen to different AM/FM radio stations at the same time.
