Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reciever in a tiny form factor! Firstly, i'm an AV technician / Installer who works with this gear daily, so i have extensive experience with Home Theater Receivers, and also have very high expectations. I've owned this unit for around 3 months now and this thing has amazed me with how well it does it's job for the price! Initially skeptical of it's seemingly lower power output on paper, thanks to it's class D amps it punches well above it's weight, and has more than enough real world power to run full size home theater speakers. The feature list of this amp is the real standout though. Dolby Atmos 3.2.1 is also a very interesting feature and works well. Great inputs and just about all the available streaming options, including Chromecast and Appleplay 2, all built in. Best feature in my opinion though is the small size, being not much bigger than a DVD player. Pioneer did well with this design. Well Done.
