5 Star Review   By member gjl - Mar 10, 2007   

Strengths: Support especially at low volume, versatility, great remote ... lots of muscle.

Weakness: None noted

As a committed advocate of two channel stereo, I could not be more pleased. Thanks Denon for your vision. HDRadio tuner is outstanding bonus. Ready for satellite and iPod. There is nothing else like this on the market
