|The Digital ToP-ART design concept combines the latest and best technologies, parts and circuit designs to maximize sound quality. High Current Amplification uses superior components to achieve high current power with low impedance from input (power supply circuit) to output (speaker terminals).The HTR-5740 uses extremely high performance 192kHz/24-bit DAC for all 6 channels. They perform accurate sound field reproduction for high quality multi-channel sources, and for two-channel stereo, provide outstanding separation and precise musical delineation. They deliver superior low level linearity with excellent full-scale performance.The YSS-948 LSI performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTSES Matrix 6.1, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS Neo: 6 and DTS 96/24 decoding with extreme accuracy. The YSS-930 processes all digital sound field data.Yamaha's ultra-sophisticated Quad-Field and Tri-Field CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic soundscapes in your room. 29 surround programs provide full format compatibility and extensive listening choices.Yamaha's powerful YSS-948 LSI has the necessary speed and precision to achieve accurate synchronization of images and sounds, which is called lip-sync. By using the Audio Delay mode, lipsync parameters can be adjusted when necessary.During low-volume listening, such as late at night, dynamic range suffers and you may miss some sounds. The Night Listening Enhancer offers two modes, Cinema and Music, with three-level selectability, which will ensure that you don't miss movie dialogue or quiet passages, or lose overall surround spaciousness.The SILENT CINEMA mode allows private listening enjoyment of multi-channel music or movies, with an accurate simulation of surround sound, through ordinary headphones.The HTR-5740 provides a choice of nine subwoofer crossover frequencies: 40, 60, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 160 and 200 Hz. In addition to providing a wider range than other receivers, the steps from 80 to 120 Hz are only 10 Hz apart for more precise selection.The frequency response of the Component Video Monitor Out signal is 5Hz - 60MHz, making it compatible with HDTV monitors.|

Quite honestly I purchased THIS unit for the remote. I already own the same one as well as a lower model from the same product line -- so obviously I really like this product line. In this case I managed to acquire a fully functioning 'spare' receiver w/ remote for the same cost as a replacement remote. Great score in my opinion!
About the unit itself, though, it has a tremendous number of options that the average homeowner will never use such as extreme control of individual levels for all 8 million (exaggeration) of its programmable sound field choices.
Do not expect flip through the manual easily. With a plethora of options always comes incredibly detailed, and sometime confusing, instructions. But, if you take the time to plow through the many pages of detailed how-to-do-it language, your ears will thank you for doing so.
This line of amplifier products puts out a nice, clean sound for the price range. Won't rival your high end stuff, no, but ask yourself this question: Can YOU really tell the difference in YOUR room, house or apartment?
Wow! Over 20% of electronics fail, but this certainly has not. Even being a used product, the power and presitge of such a product exist. Great sound can be blasted from this HTR, and simply have no complaints.
