    Fail. It only has 4 channel output! The rears can be converted but at the price tag this will command, an extra set of outputs would have been easy and needed!

    Wrong, for the average user they would not need 6 channel outputs, only a few people do. I am looking forward to the release of this unit and would use it with a 5 channel amp that has only 4 channel inputs... Not sure what you were expecting and if this proves popular more advanced units will come out.
