I have the 576 I think it is, and have replaced by hand all the blown/failing hdmi board capcitors. 

 

Remarkably it's still going, but it will die again at some stage.

 

Does this modern equivalent have the Audyssey mic setup? - as frankly that's a massive requirement for me (given I have average inwalls that really do need calibration to flatten out).

It has a mic for room calibration / setup, however, it's not Audyssey room calibration. It's AccuEQ Room Acoustic Calibration.

From memory they removed the original Audyssey, assume because of licensing costs?

How does this AccuEQ compare, and again from memory I recall conversations that it wasn't nearly as good?

Just curious what the Onkyo NR676E would be like for 2 channel amp for music only?

I have a TX-NR737 that I use for 2 zone stereo audio and its okayish. Lacks the power that I would expect given its ratings, but as the previous power amp I used was a bryston I dont think any HT receiver will get the bass to the same levels. Analog inputs do not have a great deal of headroom so putting signals into it from my DJ mixer I have to keep the main sliders down at about half or there is distortion.

I think it sounds great with just my kef q700s for music. In saying that, this is the only avr I have owned so I am probably easily impressed.

If your only use is 2 channel though, how does the feature set compare with equivalently priced stereo amps?
