Well this site doesn't seem thrilled with it
"The Kenwood KRF-X9992D receiver is a THX Ultra and Dolby Digital equipped home theatre product. We take a peek inside to evaluate its good and bad design and construction points. Internally, the KRF-X9992D is a terribly disappointing product. The layout is poor and there are many signs of cost-cutting. This supposedly top-of-the-line model is undoubtedly an example of sub-standard receiver design."

Also I wouldn't buy a receiver for a home theater without HDMI myself.
