I just received my RX-Z9 a couple days ago. Without going into a lengthy post, let me tell you...WOW!!! What an awsome receiver. This unit does everything. There are numerous ways to hook it up. I am still trying to figure out which way is best for my needs. I am very impressed with the sound quality considering I was upgrading from a Yamaha DSP-A3090 (which is also a very impressive unit). Anyway, just thought I'd let everyone know how happy I am!!
