    awesome I purchased this a few days ago to replace an Onkyo TX-NR609 that stopped outputting sound a few months ago, after just 2 years. I can’t speak to the v577’s long term reliability, but the sound quality and features are terrific.The wifi is great and way more useful than I thought it would be, particularly if you are using Airplay. You can play songs from your iphone directly to the receiver, using the music player, itunes, pandora, and any other app that supports airplay. You can even set it so that the receiver will turn on and start playing if you stream a song to it from the phone.
