Too many bugs
Airplay 2 doesn't work well with Sonos, not loud, too reliant on remote, and doesnt work well with turntables (phono).

Perfect replacement for AVR-1508
This unit has all of the features at a price point that I felt was acceptable. Others have more features and more power, but for my room ( 900sqft it is more than capable of delivering amazing sound. set up was a breeze. The perfect solution to add a 4K upgrade to my home entertainment system. The new units on screen status ensure you know what the system is doing.
The Apple app is a nice touch but does not always connect. this is one area for some improvment

Does this unit have an output for an external amplifier? (I want to use an external amp to power my towers.) Thanks
A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
  This model does not have preamp outs for an external amplifier.
Are there meaningful performance or feature differences, besides power output, between the s740h and the s940h? Thank you.
A shopper on Jul 9, 2018
  Except for power, sonically the amplifiers are identical. There are small connectivity differences.
