"No better option if you can get it for the right price"4.5 starson by wsu99999
Pros: Amazing sound - solid video reproduction
Cons: buggy but easy to overcome
Summary: This receiver isn't perfect out of the box. There is a lot of work you need to put into it for proper operation. Many of the bad reviews are made because people don't buy compatible equipment, or they don't know how to properly configure it. Or, they paid the original retail price.
I picked this thing up refurbished on Ebay from HK directly. It was 740 shipped. I don't care where you are, there is NOTHING that comes remotely close to this at that price - NOTHING.
The receiver is extremely buggy, so be prepaired for many long nights to work out the kinks, but once it is all said and done, this works perfect.
