information regarding Sunfire Grand Cinema IV

I am planning to buy Sunfire Grand Cinema IV. Please can you tell me based on your experience the main positives and negatives.
The sunfire has alot of options including a phono stage for I believe MM only, they are supposed to have that "tube" imitation sound, I almost bought one myself but felt a actual tube pre with a less expensive movie processor was a better fit for me, at the MSRP I thought I could do better.
I am also interested in opinions about this unit. gdashti - did you audition this processor? If so, what are your impressions? I have read various reviews of the unit and like the consensus that it is very tube-like for a SS component. There are some local audio shops that are dealers for Sunfire so I hope to be able to audition the unit soon.

I would also like to know how this compares with the Simaudio Stargate processor, if anyone has had a chance to listen to both. (There aren't any Simaudio dealers in my state, so that is a bit of a downside for me.)
