A. Here's an FAQ on AVRs and their features:

When I looked at the specs it was difficult to determine if this AVR decodes the HD audio formats - it doesn't look like it. This may be something you want to "future proof" yourself, even if you think you don't want it now. Even in a small room surround sound is important. I would not watch a movie without it these days, especially considering how inexpensive it is to have.

D. Some AVRs have audio passthrough in standby, some don't. You'll have to read the operating manual/specs very closely to see whether it does. Most do not have this feature, especially in this price range.

Here's a post useful for those new to the forum - FAQs, Search tips, Optimization, etc:
