I have had this receiver about 3 weeks and it is great. I upgraded to this receiver from a Harman Kardon that was nice, but my technologically challenged wife had a hard time with. I also wanted the ability to plug my PS3, Wii, Iphone, Directv and anything else into the receiever through HDMI connections and then have 1 HDMI going out to the tv. This receiver has nailed it on all points. My wife only has to ever hit 2 buttons on the remote. 1 to watch tv and 1 to play blu-ray. So, there is alot less yelling yelling in my living room. There is also no signal loss when plugging everything into the receiver and then having the 1 output to the tv. The on screen controls that are output to the tv are also very helpful and user friendly. The microphone that it comes with to set up your speaker configuration is amazingly accurate. I'm using the same Hardan Kardon speakers that I had before. However, they have never sounded as good or as well balanced. Bottome line--Fantastic receiver and especailly at the price!
