I am currently auditioning this thing at home and it sounds pretty good. I have never been a real follwer of H/K products but all this talk about the great deal the 7200 is got me going. I have a Yam RX-V740. It's going down to the family room for my wife to play with. Not enough power and a poor match for my new PSB's. Had the Denon 5803 for a few days to play with. Great improvement over the Yam and proved to me that my speakers could actually sound good in my room. I was worried there for a while. Much fuller sound and impact. Vocals were smooth and imaging was nice. Picked up quite a bit on detail in stereo listening than I have heard before. Only problem is that it cost more than I am willing to part with. The H/K 7200 is a real beast. You can tell the extra power is there. The sound is really clear and strong. The vocals are not as smooth as the Denon and when the volume goes up the vocals seem to break up a bit. For movies I really like this piece. It draws you into the soundfield a bit more than the Denon does. Are there any drawbacks to this 7200 I am missing? I have seen a few post about possible reliability issues with H/K in general. Have there been any problems with the 7200 in particular? Lastly, is there another receiver in this price range ( now $800) that I should listen to before I pull the trigger. I have thought about the Denon 3803 but it will be quite a bit of trouble to put my hands on one to try. I have also considered NAD products but will not be able to try before I buy. I'm thinking I should just get this H/K and put my pondering to rest.
