Very good and engaging sound to me. Detailed and natural, hefty weight and rapphet. Nice looking and nice sense of controls, the remote control is also well above average. The terminals for the speaker connections are so fine that they should be on the front :-) They want "only" to listen to a song for, and to, etc ... A very good result for me and a successful Yamaha product, just to congratulate. Had it been a Spotify Connect client built, it had become full pot, now I can manage fine with my Beep.
