Love it! It has enough bells and whistles for my use and of course that sweet HK sound. One minor downside is that it only has 4 HDMI ports, but I've figgered out how to overcome that limitation.

I tried out the Bridge III with my iPod. Looks real neat sitting over there plugged into the Bridge. Works fine and seems to respond plenty fast enough. Pretty sure I won't use it much as I don't...

I've never had a Marantz so I'm not familiar with their menuing system. I do have a Denon, and their menus are a bit daunting in some areas, the HK's is much simpler. But other than at setup I...

The lighting is there, but it is a white light as is the power light when it is fully on. On previous models those used to be a very pleasant blue color. As I said, minor quibble.

Right, the older ones could do L7 on just about anything, but couldn't do much more otherwise than the 3600 does now. And I knew that HK was the only one doing L7.

Yeah, one of the very few things I like about Yamaha AVRs is you can overlay practically anything on anything else. HK has always been a bit stingy about allowing much of that. Frankly I'd buy a...

Yeah, I noticed that if I turn off the EQ it is not only louder for the same volume setting, it seems somewhat different. I suppose compressed could be the description.
