I chose this receiver because it was affordable and had more than enough options for me. In fact I hardly doubt I will use it to its fullest capability. It allows you to setup 8 different sound points, and automatically adjusts the sound to the room. I know many receivers to this now, but thought it was neat. I am now addicted to listening to internet radio. It buffers the sound for mostly uninterrupted music, even with our crappy internet connection (line of site). I never used to even think of turning my home audio on while watching television. Now it seems I cannot watch a hockey game with letting the receiver control the sound. Its almost like I am at the rink!!! as for setup, there are more connections on the back of this receiver then I can ever possibly use. Setup is also extremely user friendly. I enjoyed that process as well. Great Job Marantz!!!
