Great Receiver, set up and operation are not intuitive
I bought this because I wanted to upgrade my surround system to 4K picture capability and I wanted a receiver with video and audio capability of BlueRay. It does those things extremely well. I also needed a receiver that can run two zones. So for those reasons, this is an excellent receiver. However, it only came with a quick set up guide. Setting up zone 2 is not intuitive and so I downloaded the entire manual which is literally a stack of paper (single sided) an inch thick. You have to use the TV menu so change the receiver speaker options and use the reference speaker outputs for zone 2 so if 7.1 surround is important to you and you want zone 2, this receiver can't so that. Audio 1 and 2 inputs are optical and audio 3 is coaxial so if you use RCA jacks for a CD player, it has to be on audio 4 or 5. There is no button option for inputs, there is an input knob so to get to audio 4 you have to scroll through 6 HDMI inputs, 2 AV, Aux, and audio 1, 2 &3. Scrolling counter clockwise saves a few inputs. Scrolling is fast so it's also easy to move past the input you wanted. Zone 2 once set up is excellent and zone 2 input is separate from the main receiver so my grandson can be watching a movie and I can listen to other music in the basement or on my deck, etc. (I run zone two through a splitter to control 4 rooms, this receiver can't do all that). Selecting input for zone two is just as cumbersome. Bluetooth is great. If you use a Bluetooth speaker to stream podcasts from your phone or music you can now do so through the receiver. The sound effect or hall options are easy to choose from. Bluetooth pairing has to be done with the remote. If paired, you can select Bluetooth on the receiver but if my wife has used it, I have to find the remote to repair. None of these things are a big deal. Lastly the Scenes buttons should be programmable so I can set them to the inputs and sound effect I use often instead of preset to options I don't use.

Nice upgrade!
This was an upgrade from the RX-A550 which I have no complaints about. but. I thought it would be a nice step up so I could have all the latest features..I also really wanted SiriusXM as a feature since the RX-A550 does not offer this service. So far very happy with my new Receiver!
