Keepin up with the Jones’ . . .
- 4 HDMI inputs (Perfect for X-Box 360, Cable Box, an eventual Blu-Ray player and one extra for future expandability)
- Video upconversion to 1080p for legacy sources
- HD Radio tuner (I’ve been dying to have an HD radio tuner)
- Wireless network connectivity for easy firmwear updates and streaming music from a server
- XM Satellite Radio ready (Teri and I both have XM in the car, so it would be nice to have a third at home)
- Bazillions of other audio/video connections (see pic below)
- 2nd Zone (and actually FOUR zone) output for our whole house audio system
- PLENTY of power, like 140W per channel to really drive the home theater experience
- All the latest audio decoders like Dolby True HD, etc.
- WAY more than I care to list here!
Long story short, it will be a fantastic receiver for MANY years to come and offer the expandability to grow with my needs. Coupled with the new Mitsubishi TV, the Xbox HD-DVD player, an eventual Blu-Ray player, etc. My home theater will have never sounded or looked better!
