I finally got it but unfortunately won't have time to hook it up until Friday or Saturday. For anyone thinking of getting one www.soundpros.com has the best price. It retails for $4200 but they have it on special for $2600. Let me tell you it's really heavy. The box weighs 74 pounds. It took 2 of us to pick it up. In fact the box says in order to avoid injury pick up with 2 people. I was able to take it out & look at it tonight & it's BIG & a beauty. I'm going to have to rearrange my rack to make room for it. I want to give it a lot of breathing room. It has 160 w x 7 channels. Is THX Ultra 2 certified. I think this is the first receiver that is THX Ultra 2 certified. It does THX Surround EX, DTS ES Discrete, Dolby Prologic II, Neo 6 & DTS 96/24. I can't wait to try it out this weekend. It comes with an external microphone to do room acoustics for you. I'll try to answer any questions about the receiver once I have it all hooked up.
