When you first turn on the receiver without any calibration, you can hear and feel the raw power. After the full automated calibration and some manual minor fine tunings, I couldn't be happier. The first thing you'll notice is the clean, powerful yet natural sound output the receiver has to offer. If you're not into manual calibration, let the receiver do the full auto calibration. That'll make a world of difference. All of the video components are connected via HDMI, so I can't really comment on the performance of the Faroudja upconverting chipset. Just like the former Elite receivers, SC-07 comes with ipod connection (a USB port instead of a cable this time around). The GUI is much easier to use compared to Denon receivers. I like the fact that the menus are straight forward enough to navigate through the settings easily without referring to the manual every single time.
Initially, I was going to wait for SC-27 to come out. Then again, the major difference between the two are color GUI with the ability to show the album art work on the ipod and a different upconverting chip. Personally, I don't care about the extra bells and whistles. Amazon (3rd party retailers) probably have the best pricing I've seen so far. I have no regrets and I'm looking forward to enjoying it for quite some time.
The features and sound quality of this receiver are nothing shy of amazing. My wife and I use the "home media gallery" feature on a weekly basis to listen to neural THX 80's music while we're cleaning the house. I just recently upgraded my speaker system to 7.1 from 5.1 and I'm absolutely amazed. (I was using the same old speakers I was using with my old 5.1 Onkyo receiver, and the improvment in clarity & detail was astonishing.... moving to a 7.1 setup is just as impressive.)
I have no idea how to explain how I feel every time I pop in a BluRay, Xbox 360 game, or watch a HD movie on cable.... After nearly a year, I still cannot belive I own this masterpiece. I still thank the ultimate sales guy in Colorado on a regular basis for convincing me to NOT settle for anything less. [ Mike, you're the man! ] (Almost as awesome as the folks at Pioneer for creating such a fine piece of A/V equipment.)
The seller was other than Amazon but proved to be worthy of operating under their cloak. They actually got the receiver to me early and packaged properly for handling by untrained gorillas.
