Hi friends, Just had my new toy in, in lovely gold color. Man, this thing is HEAVY ! Hooked it up, sound is very good as expected: it is warm and mellow, still for the first time when playing the Björk DVD-Audio in 5.1 I could understand every word, and the sound really engulfed me. But if you want the sound to be "in yer face" and splattering and overly crisp this is not the receiver for you! Next weekend I'll play some movies (neighbour's out I think), and also try the sound-over-hdmi input, because stupidly enough my matching DV-9500 has no i-link output! Also some heavy Mahler sacd's are on the list... Will keep you posted.
