This receiver may not have HDMI ports, but the audio performance is excellent. I use it to power two Tannoy D500s, two Advent Legacys, and two Energy rear speakers... and the Energy front speaker. The AV-1 replaced my AV-2 as my primary home theater and gaming receiver.

re: AV-1

I've seen several posted on eBay. Sellers wanted IMO ridiculous prices for them. For example, I paid (not a typo) $0.01 for my non-working AV-1. The cheapest remote I have found was starting bid of $125. Not sure why they are so pricey.
And I am still looking for an AV-1 or AV-2 service manual. They are not even out there to buy ;et alone download.
