Jagruti Savant –
I am very impressed by this AV receiver. It has all the bells and whistles you could want to make your home theater system shine. The quality is top-notch and the remote is simple to use. It has a clean and simple design, so it is easy to operate. You can search for and save your favourite radio stations. You can also connect a USB thumb drive or iPod to listen to your music library. You can program a single button to turn on your receiver and select your favorite input source. I love the HDMI switching capability. This is a great receiver.
