Well ... for one thing, although the SR7008 is the highest level model released in 2013, it is not considered a true "flagship" model like the AV8801 pre/pro is considered or the Denon 4520CI which...

You still have to go into the GUI, you just don't have to play the test tones as you do with the other speakers. Denon removed the "on-the-fly" channel changing via the remote about 4 years ago.

This is a 7 year old model. You should be able to pick one up for $350 or so. Should serve you well if you don't need any of the newer features on more current models.
