Love it!...Very happy...I returned it, and Best Buy had this in stock, and even on sale, so I thought I'd give it a try as it met my requirements - 8 HDMI inputs, 4k HDR ready, and the two HDMI outputs....The only reason I rated it 4 stars is do to the fact you can't connect your iPod directly to the receiver you have to use Bluetooth and they changed the display window to only show what source your using and not show you what sound is being output.
