Andrew, Kent Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Provides almost everything an AV Receiver can, great sound quality, ease of setting up and use.
Still very happy with decision buying the LX85 rather than the Onkyo/Yamaha from the same price bracket.
Bad points:
AirPlay works great but would prefer being able to select main or Zone 2 to stream to rather than always stream to main (then having to quickly change main zone input back to what it was).
IControlAV2 DLNA music streaming works fine but is sluggish compared to a Sonos connect for example.

Richard, Kingswinford Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound and vision quality, packed full of features, solid build quality and mighty powerful! Once this receiver is set up, it is a joy to use, well worth the money I paid for it.
Bad points:
Instruction manual is very in depth and a little disjointed, you will need a day really to read through this in detail and go through the set up, if like me you have upgraded from a plug and play off the shelf system.
Other than that, brilliant piece of kit.

Paul, Melbourne Music listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
An absolute brilliant sounding receiver with many features, terrific clarity, lots of power whilst retaining the quality of surround sound. Fully recommended..
Bad points:
You need to take the time to read the instructions fully and can get a little complicated first time around. Should have the optional Bluetooth as standard for such a high spec of equipment.
