They changed me from an Onkyo 809.
And what a takeover it was! Much better channel separation, although less effect it has much better control over the speaker diaphragms. Easy to handle, and Anthems room correction system (ARC) is the fiendishly ambitious! Just tripod and mic costing certainly more than the budget receivers ... :) By the way do you get with a unique calibration file that ARC utilizes when measuring the room, wonderful!
The sad thing is that you find out how bad my living room, even if ARC is doing its best to solve the problems. :) But it's not the receiver's fault ... :)
Can iofs mention that there is no Spotify clients and other kind of frippery, but I play the lossless music and other items from the computer anyway.
