Pros & Cons

Pros

  • I am glad that built-in decoders play almost all of my files properly. It is 100% worth of its price.
  • The total power output is 210 Watts, which is enough for enjoying proper sounding in my living room.
  • Not very important, but anyway, it can be both auto/manually switched on.

Cons

  • It does not have auto power off, so it bothers me each time to turn it off manually.
  • For me not so important, but note that it does not have networking capabilities.
  • The main disadvantage for me is that it cannot be controlled via a smartphone.
