1) This is an excellent Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Pro-logic Receiver! 2) Moreover, it has DSP (Digital Sound Field Processing).Thus, you can add venue sound effects such as: Theater 1, Theater 2, Pavillion, Hall 1, Hall 2, and Dance Club- These digitally adjust the sound to make it feel as if you were actually in one of these venues! 3) On top of that, you can adjust the level/amount of DSP effect that is applied. 4) It has adjustments for individual speaker size and adjustments for the distance of each speaker from the listener so that the Receiver automatically applies the correct amount of Delay Time. 5) There are EQ, Crossover, Subwoofer, and LFE adjustments. 6) Midnight Modes 1 & 2 increasingly compress the Dynamic Range of the source (the difference between the softest & loudest sounds in a movie- eg. a whisper vs. an explosion in an action flick). This feature is great if you live in an apartment or condo- you can hear the dialogue yet you won't blast your neighbors out of their beds! 7) It has a Digital Coaxial Audio Input for true Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and DTS. It has Dolby Pro-logic too. 8) I have this RX-5060B and also the nearly identical RX-5040B (2 years old). Also, I have a Dolby Digital 1080p "Home Theater in a Box", so I have a 12 speaker and subwoofer surround setup hooked up to a 47" LCD 1080p HDTV & Blu-ray Player. This setup including the excellent JVC Receivers rivals any Movie Theater. 9) This JVC Receiver is a STEAL at $128 at Walmart Online! 10) Only possible con for some might be that there is no Digital Optical SPDIF Input, only has the Digital Coaxial SPDIF Input
