I looked at these for a lot more money, and almost bought it. I have an HK AVR 1510 that uses most of the same technology as this one. This one has more features and most importantly more HDMI inputs, mine has four, this one has six.
I don't use the surround much, so won't comment on 5.1 vs 7.1 performance, I listen to a lot of music, and am a lot happier listening to music in 2 channel stereo mode.
The Green technology seems to work pretty well, it puts out plenty of power and doesn't run nearly as hot as my older equipment.
As for power, don't get too hung up on ratings, other brands have always and still way over state their power ratings. I get similar levels and sound from my 1510 rated at 75w per channel as I did my older Pioneer that was rated to 150w per channel.
