Hello I'm new here and not nearly as smart as the rest of you when it comes to home theater. I was in the market for a new avr to replace my Onkyo 787 which is really out dated. I went to my local home theater dealer to purchase a Denon 3808ci or a Yamaha 3900 avr. What I left with was a Yamaha RX-Z11 for an extra 900.00 dollars. I did not know to much about this unit except this was a good price.
Any thoughts or comments on this avr that maybe helpful to me are welcome. This unit weighs a ton and the instruction booklet is a 176 pages all in english. I was really hoping the book was quatered into at least four different languages.
I have it hooked up and it sounds great playing through my Energy RC speakers. I was looking for any other owners of this unit that come share some feedback, tips or tricks.

Thanks to all. You made me even more excited about my purchase then I was to begin with.
I have run two of the three setups so far for the speakers. It nailed the speaker level of all seven and the sub. Checked the setting with a spl meter but for some reason it sets them all at 78 instead of 75
I left the setting at 78 since they were all even. It missed the speaker distance on two speakers. The left front and right surround by less then 1.5 feet. I thought this was pretty good since I used the setup at seven different seatting locations. I changed those two settings to match my seat.
I could not wait any longer to test the surround sound after setting up the speaker levels and distance. So I put in Master and Commander BD set the reciever to THX ultra 2 and got blown away by the cannon fire. I thought my room was coming apart:hsd: My room is 24x26
So far so good but one thing I do not like about this unit is the remote. It is just plain lousy slow to respond if it responds at all on first try. It also looks very cheap. Thanks again to all and if I can be any help to anyone let me know.
