"$199 software upgrade"! Good luck with that! For that price, they had better pop the corn and provide terrific sex after the movie is over.

Your statement that it only amplifies 7 channels is incorrect. The AVRX4300H has 9 channels of amplification, and supports 11.2 with the addition of an external amp. The step up 6300H offers 11 channels of amplification, no external amp needed.

Sorry about that, I thought you were reviewing the 4300H, not the now discontinued 4200W.

Is there any way you guys can be more timely with your reviews? By the time you publish a review, like this one, the product is already discontinued and the new model is already shipping!

Unless there was a typo I'm hoping that we'll get reviews of equipment that's still available for purchase "new".

As others have mentioned, this was discontinued about a month ago and replaced with the X4300H. On the plus side, it's currently available new on Amazon for $800.

Sorry to repeat the sentiments of others, but I am pretty disappointed that you guys are just getting around to publishing this review. I was really hoping to see a review of the CURRENT crop of AVR's on the market as I am looking at several D+M models (AVR-X4300H, AVR-X6300H, and SR-7011) for an upcoming purchase. Hopefully some of these will be reviewed in a more timely fashion.
