    Well done, good luck setting it up. Hope its what you expect it to be. Mines awesome i must add. Took alot of tweaking and setting up with other equipment wasnt easy, but ive learnt alot from these forums and now its awsome.

    I agree, when I first set it up I thought "yeah it sounds good, but not that much better than my old budget Yamaha".

    Now I've had time to play & tweek it's excellent :D

    I got mine just before christmas, it took me a while to set it perfectly for my living room. It sounds amazing now and certainly brings the soundtracks to DVD and Blu Ray alive in a way that my old all-in-one system never could.

    I do feel that even now it's set that i haven't quite tweaked it's maximum potential out though.

    It would be a good idea to have hints/tips in one place instead of trawling through the hundreds of posts asking how to connect various sources to the receiver which is very common in the 'Offical 605 owners thread'.

    Received my 605 today.
    Any hints or tips would be really appreciated, because I am a complete novice.

    One setting I have tweeked is when I changed the Audyssey equalisation settings to off or manual. So I still kept the crossover frequencies, speaker distance and volume set by the Audyssey mic, but just simply turning off the Audyssey equaliser settings.

    I then had a play around with the manual equaliser settings and instantly noticed I difference in sound quality. However this may just be a personal opinion but the sound quality just seemed a lot sharper.
