Musicman1999; I looked at the website. It did not indicate it did DTS-ES Discrete although I did not download the PDF file. It did not feature DTS Neo which may or may not be importantant for some. At one watt it indicated .006% THD. That is low for an 80watt X 6 receiver. If that distortion does not rise, it would probably be one of the cleanest sounding 80 watt X 6 receivers around. Perhaps that is why you found the sound so outstanding. Whether this unit is worthwhile in other things depends on realiablity, set-up convenience and price. Looks like a nice high end hometheater piece from the photo.

This just hit the shelves here in australia, anyone know what it offers in the way of bass management?
