It concluded my search for that showroom sound that I often heard from systems twice or three times the price. It drives anything you connect to it and the sound is completely balanced. Can’t say enough great things about it. Even the little Sprout100 is a top notch performer. Heads and shoulders above the sound of many expensive AVRs, I had before. I in fact traded everything I had to start anew. And it was more than worth it. I am a fan without any reservation.
