    "Love it!...Love it....Ultimately, as I added speakers to my configuration, I spent the most time trying to decide if the sound of 6.0 would give me a significantly better listening experience than 5.0 - for the time being, I went ahead and mounted everything for the 5.0 experience (which is amazing) while I continue to try more surround-intensive material with-and-without the added speakers....Sound is crisp and clean, though it doesn't as as much power as a midrange or high-end receiver; two subwoofer outs and the ability to bi-amp your front speakers in a 2 channel or 5.1 channel setup is a nice touch, however; the bi-amping feature makes this a good receiver option for a listening room on a budget."
