Interesting, mine has a black face, and is VERY different from the pictured unit. It has "direct" and "pure audio" selections (buttons to the left of the display). Input selector buttons are also quite different 100 watts rms/channel, and I drive all four quite often. At 3/4 volume she gets hot, but doesn't clip! (running PSB X2T's as my main, add in Bose 301's I have near the ceiling for extra effect). It will move the floor. And it didn't break the bank to buy.
I haven't found an upgrade to this receiver unless I go to $2000+ amplifiers like NAD's or MacIntosh's.
