This unit is now at one of my local shops here. They do not have it set up yet. I have been anxiously waiting to audition this tank of a receiver. It looks to be simply awesome. Has anyone bought one yet, heard one or demo'd one? I am also interested if anyone has any feedback on the SR-8200. That one is a little easier on the wallet. And if there is not a huge difference between the 2 models I might go with the 8200. ------------------ "I'm your Huckelberry"
