(1) It is clean, powerful and dynamic
(2) It does not EQ the sub
(3) I prefer it over Pioneer, Marantz, Denon, Yamaha, Sherwood, etc....
(4) Easy to operate - clean dynamic sound for music and movies - good picture -
THX Select 2 option - 3 12-volt triggers - zone 2 and zone 3, and you can power
zone 2 with the receiver amp - good on screen display/change options, plus the
volume level control on screen - plus, good frills people are looking for - has a
good remote - also, 7.2 pre-outs.
Where can you find all this, at this price?
I am not a big fan of Audyssey, or the other different receivers auto calabritation.
Now if one is looking for the higher level Audyssey, then keep looking - however,
if one does not care about all that > then this is a solid receiver option.
Prices are still out there up to over $1000
