12 HDMI ports, excellent DACs.
Instead of 9.2 I am running a 7.2 Bi Amped config and its sounds fantastic. Beautiful dialog and very warm movie presentation.
iPad based manual is excellent.
Well worth it.
I want to note that I DID NOT purchase this through Amazon, though I wish I had. I purchased it through Big B. It was on sale at one of their "flower" centers for the price that it is now listed at here on Amazon. I just want to say, this is the last time I will ever purchase anything that Big B is required to ship... ANYWHERE!!! Whether it be to my door or directly to the store, never again.Read more ›
Construction quality is top class. I would have given this receiver five stars excepting that it is short on analog inputs and there is no phono capability (not a big problem nowadays since most turntables come with phono amps). It is clearly a receiver designed for the digital world; if you have a bunch of legacy devices that you want to connect to this receiver, you will be caught short. It has enough HDMI ports however to keep most modern users happy.
Two big weaknesses; the receiver's remote and the user manual. The remote might be the worst I have ever used, the ergonomics are just terrible, especially since the designers crammed so much option-able capability into this receiver. On top of that the user manual has to be one of the worst I've used too. It is clearly a not-so-great translation from Japanese and crams two portrait pages into one landscape page. Plus it only comes as an addition to the setup CD. Yep you can zoom in on the page, but that makes it even harder to follow the context.
The receiver's setup program is very good, and easy to use, and allows the user a great deal of flexibility in choosing configurations, crossovers, equalization, etc (and changing it if you want to). The rear panel is very nicely designed and laid-out; the fact that all of the speaker connections are in a row makes it easy to connect speaker wires (even in tight spots).Read more ›
With my old SC-61 the sound was often clinical, precise, detailed, and cold. I'm not saying this is bad! For certain types of music this is fine, but for others I felt I was lacking depth to the sound stage and the mid-range and upper bass was not defined well enough. For movies the SC-61 was an amazing performer with plenty of power to spare and a sense of dynamics that was incredible. The SC-61 was great for the money (especially with movies) and I wondered if the SC-75 could top it enough to justify the price tag.
The answer is yes, the SC-75 is worth the money. I noticed right off the bat an increase in sound stage. The sound was fuller, stretching across my 5.1 setup in my 12X10 room with ease. This was especially noted in 2 channel stereo, listening to both CDs and SACDs. The cold clinical sound of the '61 was replaced by a lush warm mid-range that still had definition in the higher registers and an increased definition in the upper bass. If I had to describe the sound of the SC-75 it would be neutral to warm, which fits quite well with my B&W setup.
Setup was tough. If you want good sound from this receiver, you have to be willing to go the extra mile with the calibration. MCACC generally will not sound its best using the "full auto" calibration setup.Read more ›

Sound is amazing, but half the features are either difficult to use, or don't function as advertised. I spent far too much time getting it on WiFi network. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Scott

I really like this unit, however, it isn't very intuitive. After having it for nearly a year, I still haven't figured out how to operate all the controls. Read morePublished 20 months ago by W. Wright
