This is the AV receiver that eats the other AV receivers for breakfast. If you look at the front panel with all the features listed on it and don’t think this is impressive enough, then we really don’t know what will. Its on board DAC is the latest Sabre 32 bit/ 192Khz upsampling DAC, has 175W into 9 channels (not five or seven but NINE!) and powered by the latest D3 digital amplification, 4K Ultra HD upscaling and eight HDMI inputs! We could go down the list of features that comes standard with it but it will too long so we will just tell you, as an AV receiver, it is by far the best we have used that is under $2,000 that will easily rival a more upscale setup that cost up to $10,000. If there is a gold standard for a one piece do all receiver and cost under $2,000 MSRP, we would award it.
Cosmetically, the unit is in great shape. Some minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We have the original remote but not the 131 page manual which is available online. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
