Pros: Features to $$$ benefits, 2 subwoofer pre-outs (7.2)
Cons: Will it last?
Bought this used locally from craigslist for $100 in "as new" condition, all accessories, manuals and box - really like brand new. At $1.11 per watt, it was a GREAT bargain. It worked mostly fine for the first month, but lately the video signal cuts out to my projector through the HDMI connection - this may not be the receiver, but rather the cable or line voltage drops which I am reading HDMI is sensitive to (something about losing the handshake between). All sources produce this same problem. Video cuts out after a few moments and screen goes to snow, then the pj displays a signal not recognized message, then the video comes back, and repeats. ALSO, pressing the video button (to change settings) has no effect, not sure why. Overall I like the receiver. Wish it did upscale to 1080p instead of just 1080i. I'm reading that the HDMI boards go out, as does the front display on this model. Knock on wood this one lasts. If not, will probably go back to Yamaha.
