"Excellent audio and video performance"5.0 starson by Absolut187
Pros: 4 HDMI inputs
Takes analog video inputs and outputs on HDMI (with optional 1080p upconversion)
Good customization options
Cons: None. Really.
Summary: I have this in my home theater connected to (1) Nintendo Wii via component video and stereo audio (2) HD cable box via HDMI and (3) DVD via HDMI.
I only have one HDMI cable running to my projector, so it was essential to have the analog-to-HDMI output for the Wii. At first the video wasn't working well with the projector (Mitsubishi HC5500), but I reconfigured the video upscaling to "pure" which I think is just a pass-through, and now it works great because the projector does the upscaling. I figure the upscaling in a $2,000 projector is going to be better than any mid-range AV receiver anyway. The sound is excellent. I have it connected to all Polk in-wall speakers and a sub in a 7.1 arrangement, and it just sounds great. Dialogue is crisp and easy to hear, even in those annoying movies where the explosions are 50x louder than the dialogue. It is really a perfect mid-range receiver for movies and games. Really could not be better. A+
