I ordered this as my 12 year old Sony receiver was beginning to show it's age.
This had all the features I was looking for and I thought it was very well priced for an Excellence Standard receiver.
There are plenty of inputs and it comes with an auto calibration gadget (which I didn't use as I'm a bit of a geek and like doing that kind of stuff myself!).
It comes with a remote commander which can be programmed to operate non Sony equipment, and a simplified remote control that does the basics.
It does a good job of converting 5.1 signals into 7.1 and the Multi Stereo option makes the most of your music.
Well worthy of 5 stars.
