I love my new receiver, upgraded from a Yamaha 371, big time upgrade. Brought my speakers to life, I think the Yamaha was clipping so it was a drastic improvement.

The Audyssey calibration was easy and makes my system sound awesome for movies. Music is great too, the limiting factor here are my mains (Polk Monitor 60's... booo), nothing wrong with them but I would much rather have a good DIY or high end commercial speakers.

Airplay works flawlessly, I didn't buy this for any networking capability and thought I didn't care nor need it, now I use it all the time. I also use DLNA for playing flac files off my PC, it can be buggy at time through windows media player, sometimes I just use the Denon to choose the music to play. The interface isn't "spectacular" but it never fails, WMP 12 sometimes does fail.

Overall I love this unit.
