Hi folks, I just got my AVR-350. This thing looks and sounds simply amazing. I don't have TV (don't laugh) so I could not configure it properly yet, but it still sounds WICKED with my paradigm studio 60 v3 speakers. I had Yamaha RX-V536 receiver (really old) and obviously 350's sound just crushes Yamaha! My source and inter connects are not top of the line either, but the sound is simply stunning. Right now I am listening to Dinna Krall CD and I can hear her lips moving when she sings which I was not able to hear with Yamaha receiver. Sound of instruments sound so REAL. It's like they are right in front of me and playing. I mean, am I in for another surprise from AVR350 once I add a decent CD player and interconnects? I am loving current sound with Yamaha 5 disc CD player (using Yamahas DAC ) with pair of 2$ RCA cable Don't worry, I am leaning towards to buy either Arcam, Rega, or Cambridge Audio CD player and sliver cable interconnects The sonic accuracy of AVR350 is probably the best out of all receivers. Oh.. Did I mention that this device looks pretty sleek? Especially black. Matte black with dull sliver buttons work really well. It's truly neo-classic design indeed! I cannot wait until I hook up all remaining speakers and test 7.1 channel! BTW, when I turn up volume without feeding any source signal, I hear hiss coming from the tweeter. I expected this from cheap receivers, but not AVR350. If I configure it properly, will it disappear?
