Product Review: This is by far one of the best receivers I have ever owned. The quality of the sound is so realistic and clear. I can hear things on DVDs and movies I watch all the time that I never heard before. The sound is so impressive that I can now hear the singers make mistakes on my live concert DVDs that I never heard before. Was this review helpful to you? Yes/No
