The receiver has accomplished almost everything I was looking for. The HDMI inputs are great and it works well with Blu Ray, Sat/Cable, CD player etc. Can hook up 4 pieces to it. The speaker hook ups are great for a one room need. I was looking for a receiver that could offer me flexibility with at least 2 zones. This receiver does not allow for that as it does not have an A and B speaker setting arrangement. All things considered though...it is working for me quite well.
