Niall, Dublin, Ireland Movie fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This unit replaces an Onkyo SR 876. Much better pairing with my JBL ES 100 speakers. This clinical sounding amp works best with bright speakers. Much better calibration mic than the Onkyo. Better THX and DTS performance. Speaker switching feature is excellent (select stereo for music playback and you ONLY get front L and R stereo speakers!) Bi-amping mode is brilliant. Lots of THX presets. VERY complex calibration mode, although there are auto and semi auto modes. Overall sound quality must be tested and appreciated with bluray sources!!! Would not buy another Onkyo after using this pioneer.
Bad points:
No s-video!!! No all-channel stereo mode (this is necessary because the rear channels output at same level as front speakers meaning tv volume can be lowered at night). Remote is too small and the inputs are not backlit! Also backlight is WAY TOO bright!!! Doesnt seem to be as powerful as the onkyo (probably because it is nearly 10 kilos lighter!)

Good points:
Excellent all around features. Fantastic sound with lots of detail in movies and music which i did'nt hear from my previous Onkyo875. Playing music from my Iphone4 via bluetooth is amazing. 3D movie playback is jaw-dropping!
