Well executed receiver with all of the bells & whistles

Pros:video scaling, output power, multi-room flexibility, HDMI up-conversion

Cons:HDMI switching compatibility issue with SA 8300 HD DVR from TWC (not a Yamaha problem)

This is the first receiver that I could justify spending more than $600 on. The HDMI and video scaling features were well worth the extra $$. I scale all video sources to 1080i and send all video through a single HDMI connection to my TV. The remote was a perfect replacement for the Harmony/Logitech I had to use before to tame all my components. Video and audio quality are superb. Eliminated many cables and the use of multiple inputs on my TV through the HDMI up-conversion capability. The area of improvement that I can think of would be to enlarge the LCD display area on the remote to show more details. I have to use the GUI display of the 2600 frequently to check and adjust settings - mostly audio DSP modes. Having this displayed on the remote would be easier.
