I bought this because it was set up with HDMI, I couldn't get my Vizio "smart tv" to recognize my older Onkyo receiver with all the other wire hook ups. The amount of volume to turn up 5.1 speakers seems excessive, and the volume knob is cheep plastic which I was surprised after my last unit.

    Like the HDMI

The speaker connectors are the spring loaded ones and are very small so if you have anything but small speaker wire they are a pain to work with.

    Very good menus for setup and setup is very flexible

It's everything you could ask for and more. This is my first home theater system and I didn't want to break the bank. This receiver easily powers my mind is 5.2 set up with ease. The only thing I didn't notice is that I didn't have Wi-Fi so I can't use my phone app.

Upgraded a 1994 Denon AVR-883 to get HDMI and audio sync problems fixed. It's loud, auto calibration is awesome and it does everything needed for my home system. Great value! If you don't need WiFi (I don't) it's perfect! Haven't tested Bluetooth yet.
