Basically - this is the best AV receiver/amp deal I could find. it's a model released last year, and is supplied with a 2 year warranty.
Anyone looking for home cinema kit on a budget would be seriously advised to consider this. The quality and connectivity absolutely destroy any of the all in one systems. The models below this appear to be selling at 50% higher prices by the looks of things, which is ridiculous.
Also does 1080p upscaling/upconverting from analog video sources into a single hdmi cable to the TV, which is nice, and passes video/sound to the TV when the amp is on standby.
It is ex-display allegedly but I've received mine and it is pristine, I would never have guessed it'd been out of the box (and still doubt it)
