Pros

wide array of inputs and outputs, can hook up a lot of equipment to the system at once

Digital SACD playback is what you'd expect, detailed and filled with subtleties in the audio

music and movies both sound crisp and clear, no distortion or muddiness

1 agrees

fills out audio on regular CDs, gives them a rich vinyl sound

1 agrees

Cons

a bit older now, doesn't support a lot of the modern standards such as HDMI

2 agree

often need to hit several buttons on the remote to access functions, not a lot of direct-access functions

1 agrees

not the easiest thing to set up, need to have some experience with AV equipment
