It's a huge brute of a reciver. Took awhile to find an audio stand to hold the beast. Runs really hot. It's a great sonding and looking receiver. Had to get the remote replaced because the backlighting went out, but I called HK and they sent me a replacement with no questions...not even my serial number. Great service!! All I had to give them was a mailing address and receiver model number.

Excellent receiver as long as you don't need 7 channels. Sound quality is first rate, and logic 7 decoding is superior.
