So, I had a couple of pros and cons

Cons (some tentative):
1) It doesn't have USB ports, no biggie.
2) Not sure yet, but I don't know if it can set 'mid-range' levels (I know it can set bass and treble separately).
3) This thing is one HEAVY motherload...again, no biggie, it's not like I am going to be moving it all that much, after setup.
4) Have to be careful with the front door.

1) It can probably do my kids' homework, when I have kids.
2) Looks nice and clean up front, with plenty of ports in the rear.
3) Has tons of 'theatre' options, sound fields, etc.
4) Universal remote will be nice, once I learn it.
5) It turns on...YEAH!

Now, once I get the speakers, from Axiom, I will be able to test it out. I did use the radio, with some 6 ohm speakers that I have (just to sanity check the unit), and the speakers (given their small size/power/etc) were clear as well. Of course, they are not meant to be played through the HK, but, I just had to make sure I had sound. Done.

Other than that, and my pocket being WAY lighter, I can highly recommend the well as Onecall's rapid shipment. Some of the styrofoam was a little broken up (a concern I will voice to onecall), but everything was intact. They even boxed the HK box in another box...which always helps keep things secure.

Can't wait for the speakers...and let's hope, the new house. I am sure the manual will keep me busy till then. See ya.

Always good to read the manual 5 or 6 times before setting up.
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Good deal!

I would second reading the manual several times. Every time I read my Onkyo manual I discover something else.

Definately. I am sure I will find it somehow...if it exists. I had to pack the receiver back up (talk about paintful)...only because we will hopefully be moving soon. I just wanted to check it out...and am in no way NEAR completion of reading the manual. Just glad that everything was working, and that it turned on without a hitch. Always gotta be weary about people delivering an 80 lb. box from Washington, to the east coast!

Other than that, I just wish everything from here on in goes smoothly.

Take care.
