My wife could barely carry it into the house! At similar claimed specs to the 2113 it replaced, it weighs almost 4 times as much.
Let me first say, the sound quality at "normal" listening is improved IMHO over the 2113. The clarity was the first thing the wife noticed. The 2113 did sound nice but as I started to turn up the volume clarity started to get lost in almost anything except classical.
When the 2113 was working and I was using it, it got played at half to 3/4 volume. Much anything above, like I said clarity was lost and nothing was gained in the space it was filling. The 2113 had the neat internet feature but I can live w/o that.
I set everything up using the auto set up and comparing the 2113 it replaced and a temp sony I used I was very surprised at how much better the sound quality was.
But, the 1st thing I noticed was the lack of clarity from my left tower. It puzzled me as I hadn't noticed it with either the 2113 or when using the Sony. If I stood right next the to speaker, playing a song on loop, it was obvious going back and forth between both towers, something was wrong.
So, after 30 mins of swapping wiring, checking connections etc.. it appears the tweeter on one of my towers is dead. I hadn't noticed it until the SR-120 was hooked up and running. I have no idea if it was DOA or the 2113 shutting down somehow did it.
I"ll admit, I'd be the first guy to say that one AVR to another won't produce any difference in sound but I stand corrected. Set up was simple but the ability to fine tune each input/output is nice and it works w/ our Mac.
One thing I forgot to mention is now the bass is much fuller in both movies and music. I noticed this last night listening to some classical and again to day when watching MIB.
Congrats to anyone who got one on sale, enjoy.
