    Yeah, I guess this is the step up from the DPR-1001. I imagine you don't need all the weight of heat sinks, large power suppplies, big amps etc on a totally digital receiver. It doesn't get hot.

    It does say 17 pounds. I wonder if this should have been stated as 17 kilos? HK is an American brand though, so maybe the weight is correct. I'd have a hard time turning loose if $1300 for a receiver of this very light weight.

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of a totally digital receiver? besides being lightweight...

    Mike- Possibly none. I do really like HK however, I'm perfectly willing to let others pass judgement on this receiver first. If it receives many favorable reviews by those who are actually testing or using it, my opinion can be changed. There are many expensive and lightweight electronic products on the market but for receivers this would be a new trend. Maybe it's something we will all take for granted in the future.
