Long time user of Sony and Pioneer receivers. Replaced a Pioneer VSX 850s with this unit.
Significant improvement in sound quality. Dolby Digital from both DVD's and Directv now sounds like I am at the theater. However, this unit really shines when the sound source is from a Dolby Surround source.
Unit has hook-ups for just about any gear one would own except a record player. 5 digital audio connections (1 coax the others optical - all assignable.)
Menu settings aren't overly difficult particularly if you read the manual. Many options.
Lots of DSP settings some of which are interesting and a few actually useful.
I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting something over and above an entry level receiver. Unless you are trying to flood an arena with sound more than enough power.
