I'm running one now and I have no complaints. It's your basic, bare-bones HT receiver, but it does have all the bells and whistles that I need (DTS, ProLogicII) and nothing more. I don't run it anywhere near reference since I'm in a condo and it has performed very well. Granted, it will be the first thing replaced when the next upgrade cycle hits . Don't think you can get much better for the price either.
