mind blowing excellence. It brings music and movies to life! The signal to noise ratio is stunning, the immersion is awe inspiring, the way the Dolby surround processes music is jaw dropping!
So I decided I want 9ch for 7.1.2, which this amp can't do. I bought a Marantz sr6011 thinking it would be as good as this Yamaha. What a disappointment! Nowhere near as immersive with music and movies and the Dolby surround is poor compared to the Yamaha (supposed to be the same right?) I am sending the Marantz back and getting the Yam 2060 so I can have 9ch and the added bonus of separate sub level and delay.
I think it will be The Aventage range for me for the life! You really do get what you pay for. Q Acoustic speakers all round and dual SVS PB1000 subs.
