    I have always liked the Yamaha sound from receivers but they were a bit on the bright side. From what I have read recently, the new models have lost that brightness. I am going to be listening to this receiver today, however I will not be able to hear it with my type of speakers. I am running Klipsch Reference speakers in the front and I will be adding the Reference bookshelves for my surrounds this weekened. Anyone running a Yammy with Klipsch speakers? If you are, are you happy with the sound or is it a bit on the bright side? Also, does the 5560 output DTS-ES? According to Critchfield, it doesn't and by the look of the faceplate it doesn't, but according to Yamaha's site, it does.

    Also, how is the video switching for Component and S-video? Any problems with it?

    Thanks in advance for the info.

    I believe it offers a matrixed form of DTS-ES...not discrete.
