I received it Monday after 8:30 pm, damn UPS. I didn't set it up until after 11pm. Im using single ended interconnects until I get my balance connectors. Im coming off a H/K 2.0 and let me say there is no comparison. It sounds like a blanket was removed from covering my speakers. The setup menu was pretty straight forward. After setting the speaker distance I went to the level calibration and must say I had to turn all the levels down to -10db to get it at 75. It was getting kinda late so I didn't go further into the menu. I started out with a music DVD Kenny G live. Let me say my system is alive. I heard things that I haven't heard before. It was amazing. The clarity was beyond anything I heard in my system. I had a Onkyo 797, H/K 520 and a H/K 2.0 and this blows them away imo. I didn't get around to play any CDs or mess with the room eq. but it sounds great with the current setup. I will have more details later.
