Onkyo TX-SR606 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black)
I brought this amp about a month ago, I needed an upgrade as I had brought a blu-ray player and my old Denon amp couldn't process the new Hi-Def audio tracks on blu-ray discs. The improvements in performance over my old Denon was very pleasing not only in Tru-HD and DTS Master Audio which you would expect really but also in normal DD via DVD and Xbox 360.
I found it very easy to setup, anybody with prior experience of setting up this kind of equipment will find it a breeze. You simply connect up your speakers in the traditional way, connect up your A/V equipment (this amp has 4 HDMI inputs, a big selling point for me as well because my plasma only has 1 HDMI, so this feature comes in real handy), then you start the amp up and connect the setup microphone which you place in the listening position and then start the automatic setup procedure (takes about 10 minutes) and that's it the amp does the rest, of course you may need to tweak the setting here and there if you like and assign the A/V inputs but that's all pretty straight forward.
The remote whilst nice too look at is a little tricky to setup to work with your other equipment.
All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, for further proof check out What Hi-Fi magazines 5 star review and subsequent award win.
