Well I got my Elite 45TX on Wednesday and after setting my home theater speakers up for 7.1 surround sound I finally got to plug my new reciever in and try it out. I ran the auto calibration which is a very nice feature. Played about half of the Gladiator and was amazed at how much better it sounded than my old Kenwood 1080VR. I tried out some of the different music modes which were nice. Played some Ghost Recon on my X-Box an again was amazed at the sound difference. Then about five hours after I powered my new reciever up it shut down. I was never able to get it to power back up. Not even the standby light would come on. I was a little concerned because I had purchased the unit online but when I called the dealer last night and we tried to trouble shoot the problem with no success, they said they would have UPS pick it up from me on Tuesday and then ship me a new one. I must have gotten a lemon (faulty power supply I guess?)but it sure sounded nice while it was working and I can't wait to get my replacement.
