Stimpy, I am really enjoying the Yamaha CX-A5100 not only as a surround processor but in two channel mode as well. It is very versatile with the ESS DAC 9016S on ALL channels. I upgraded from a Yamaha RX-Z9 which I had since 2003. I do not have much experience with other processors, but I can say that my sound system is phenomenal. I am sort of fortunate to have a dedicated home theater room which is acoustically treated at corners and first reflection points.The main reason I went with the Yamaha is that it has XLR out for all channels including subwoofers. Basically this week-end I completed my setup to a 7:2:4 configuration. From the Yamaha, I have XLRs going to a pair of Nuprime MCH-K38 out of which I am using 7 in bridge mode to power my front Left and Right VMPS RM40s, VMPS LRC Center, a pair of VMPS Dipole side surrounds and a pair of VMPS 626R back surrounds. The two pairs of EVOKE RUBYs are the front and back left and right height speakers in the atmos setup, also powered via XLR by 4 NUFORCE REf9 V3Se monoblocks. I have two VMPS Larger Subs, one in front and one in back in a push pull configuration, one powered by a Dayton 1000W sub amp and the other by a crown XLS1500 bridged. I guess this combination is contributing to the wonderful sound I am getting. . For movies, I have a JVC 4K projector projecting on a 120 inch Elite screen.For critical listening which I do from time to time, I use ROON, Microrendu powered by the ultra cap, Nuprime DAC10H. The only drawback i have at this time is that i need to disconnect the output XLRs from the Yamaha for the Left and right channels to connect directly to the DAC10H.I would definitely recommend the CX-A5100 based on my experience with it.Regards,Shaukat
