"Can't beat the amount of features at this price."4.5 starson by dcgerard
Pros: Right away after I had set up the Audyssey 2EQ I noticed how clean and warm this receiver sounded compared to others I have heard. The sound was identical to the ONKYO TX-SR608, which happens to be a THX certified receiver.
Cons: When I switch between movies and music, I find I need to adjust the subwoofer from -7 to 0 db. Luckily I can do this with the remote, but it would be nice if the listening modes remembered my last speaker level settings.
Summary: I'm not to sure how quick they slapped the video review of this receiver up, because this receiver does have standby HDMI pass-through. Now if they missed that little feature I'm wondering if maybe the video review forgot to run the Audyssey 2EQ, which would explain why they thought the audio was lacking. I find it hard to believe a receiver that's using the same guts as a THX certified receiver can be knocked down a notch for audio quality.
