It seems to have huge short term (dynamic) power delivery capability

240 W (3 ohms, 1 ch)
210 W (4 ohms, 1 ch)
120 W (8 ohms, 1 ch)


In that case you need to have a costly speaker that can handle that amount of instantaneous power if you want to avoid the risk of damaging of speakers at high volume.

But another good thing that I observed is that the THD at 125 Watts is quite low at least lower than Denon 1911 and that may signify lesser distortion at higher power.

The 4K upscaling, I am not quite sure if that will add any value, have to check.

The wattage depend on its brand
For Example
i have one ROTEL-RSX1058 Receiver its Price is 2000$ and it is only 75watts per channel but if i increase the Volume to 80 and listen to it then yo ll be supriced and look around that whether yo are in a Cinema Theatre or Home Theatre

its a beast beautiful sound from it

i feel my jbl doesnt able to handle its power and i am in search for B&W and Dynaudio Speakers

I am saying this not to decide receivers on wattage power audition the speakers brand and then go for it

and in another case my old marantz sr5200 is better that Onkyo 606

and many showrooms use marantz receivers for demo
