    Take the time to read the instructions & try everything. The unit sounds even better when it's broken in. Couple hundred hours. Try several different speaker (brands) with it - in your home, to find optimal sound.

      I listened to this unit, one from Marantz, Harman-Kardon, and Rotel. I liked the Pioneer & the Rotel, but the Rotel was $300 more, without either HDMI 1.4a or I-Pod connectivity.
