Picked up from Amazon for $230, $150 discount since new models released.
Using 4 Bergtek HDMI 1.4 cables to connect sources and TV. Setup was pretty easy. MCACC works and does improve sound although there is no adjustment after other than bass/treble controls.
Front speakers are vintage Hafler 300 towers and rears are JBL HLS410. No center or sub. Return to Forever bluray with dts hd sound was very naturalwithout the hyped up subwoofer boom from my old yamaha setup. Cheap subs just don't sound natural to me. I won't get room rattling explosions but that's ok. The Haflers go down to about 70hz strong, then fade out at 35hz testing with signal generator test.
The one thing I do not like is that I can't set a surround mode for each input. So, if Dolby Digital or dts is present those are auto selected, that is ok. Stereo soundtracks for all inputs have to be stereo or decoded as pro logic or dts neo6. My old Yamaha would remember what surround mode I selected for each input. The DTS neo6 seems to sound the best compared to Dolby PLII.
Listening to flac files off my nas. Sounds pretty good although not as nice as my vintage h/k amps in the mancave stereo. Dts neo6 music seems to sound best. The mcacc eq really makes it better initially, have to do more pure direct listening. Sound retriever adds some pop to the music and doesnt seem obtrusive or fatiging to listen too on some jazz music. I need to try my h/k pm655 downstairs for comparison.
So far it is fulfilling my needs for the living room HT setup. Not as easy to use as my old Yamaha and I wish I could tweak the MCACC EQ settings. Sometime I'll use some test tones and my spectrum analyzer on my phone to see what MCACC is doing as far as EQ.
I do like the Android remote app for my phone, works pretty good. Easier to navigate internet radio stations with my phone over the remote control.
