This is a powerful AVR with 11.1 decoding and 7.2.4 outputs. It is rated at 120 W per channel into 8 ohms (20 Hz to 20 kHz, 2 channels driven) with 7 channels of amplification. It is also rated at 100 W output into 8 ohms and 180 W output into 4 ohms with all 7 channels driven. You do need to add your own external amplifier to go beyond 7 channels, however that offers the opportunity to use this AVR to power the surrounds, while allowing beefy amps to take care of LCR duty, or perhaps the AVR handles the 7 ear-level channels, and you add a light-duty amp to handle the 4 overhead speakers. At least you've got options and plenty of power to work with.

GET DEAL

While not necessarily the right AVR for everyone, or for every application, this Lexicon is a state-of-the-art and it is available now.
