Bought on boxing day after I purchased a new 80' sharp LCD. I had been out of the receiver game so long I had no idea what ARC was....but boy do I love it now. Turn on my TV and my receiver...
Easy setup, web controls, ARC control, internet radio, lots of customizations
Mobile control software finicky, occasional HDCP handshake issues, noticable lag via PC/HDMI (mouse)
Bought on boxing day after I purchased a new 80' sharp LCD. I had been out of the receiver game so long I had no idea what ARC was....but boy do I love it now. Turn on my TV and my receiver automatically comes on. Audio is crystal clear. Setup with the remote mic was good although I had to boost my rear inputs a little due to their placement. The software control app for android is ok but is finicky... I rarely use the internet radio but it has worked well when I did, but the interface could be designed better.
Movies shake the house with this box. This was also the first time having banana plugs. I will never go back for that. Be careful with your sub. The output test does not give you a true idea of the loudness, be sure to throw in a movie and be ready to adjust upon explosion.
Stays pretty cool too compared to my old pioneer. I have not tried the multi-room so I cannot speak to that feature. Remote is ok, I don't have to use it much.
