                My Setup:
                Receiver: STR-DN1040
                Banana Plugs: Seawell Deadbolt
                Speakers: Pioneer SP-BS22-LR

                    Pros: 8 HDMI inputs, AirPlay, WiFi, Bluetooth, Streaming Apps, 4K Upscale, 165W per channel, usb input, movies & music sound great, but I'm not an audiophile, updatable via firmware (ethernet or WiFi)


                    Cons: Second zone isn't powered, firmware update/install takes forever, can't set center channel to large unless fl & fr are set to large, auto calibration isn't as good as Audyssey, dacs aren't on par with higher end gear, some people have reported problems with HDMI, ...
