Being that I wanted to upgrade, this is the right reciever at the right time as long as they don't have any QC issues..

I wonder if there has ever been a write-up of a Toroidal Transformer that wasn't reported as "massive". In all seriousness, it does look like a good feature set. I would be curious to know how the sound quality compares to the amp section of the 8200/8300 (especially for two channel). I've heard some reports that the 8400 was a step backward in some ways.
