For me, it's the prospect of optimizing the sound with Trinnov Room Optimizer (all the benefits of the 3D mic, flexible FIR filtering, etc), potentially improved decoding via software algorithms, earlier access to new codecs, possibly longer product life via updates and servicing options, digital outputs so I don't even need the internal dacs, high channel count (20-channels now via recent software update), excellent implementation and calibration support, number of storeable eq curves, two-way remote support, etc., etc.
Do I think it *justifies* the cost? No. But for a best effort audio implementation, I had the most confidence it wouldn't be the limiting factor, and would likely contribute to a superior result.
I didn’t mean to rain on this AVR’s parade, and if I did I apologize.
Is this units room correction on another level versus what Audyssey XT 32 can do, or is it just preference in your opinion?
Audyssey is coming out with a new room correction I understand.
This is a great looking, and functional unit there’s no doubt about that.
