5 out of 5 eggs Simply excellent 01/02/2014

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V773WABL 7-Channel AV Receiver with WiFi Adapter

Pros: Does more than in the description. My setup has 2 zones. One for 5.1 surround and other for 2.1. Party mode manages flawlessly movie experience to music. Using PolkAudio bookshelf speakers, one center and subs.

Auto setup with microphone got about 85% there. Additional adjustments for an advanced user possible.

Cons: User experience a bit funny. No custom wallpaper. Only 4 scene presets but I have 6 devices connected. DVD, iPod, WII, XBMC, Pandora, Cable box

SANS DIGITAL TR5M RAID 0, 1, 1+0, 5, 5+spare, spanning and JBOD (using bundled utilities) 5 3.5

Pros: Well ventilated and does not overheat. Noise level acceptable since I am running 5 7200 rpm disks. Easy hardware installation. Just plain the best solution if you need udles of space.

Cons: Plastic door a bit cheap and not very precise disk guides. Do not try and other eSata controllers. Make sure you use the supplied one with the Silicon image.

Other Thoughts: Get one if you have a linux system. Installed hardware and booted. Individual drives were visible using JBOD out of the box. Installed a software raid 5 with mdadm. 3 command line instructions and I had 5x 2TB disks running for my media server. Simply brilliant.
