Summary: Buying a receiver in this price range is all about affordability and features which together define value. This receiver delivers in that department. Typically available for less than $125 this AVR ticks nearly all the feature boxes. It has 4 HDMI inputs, Dolby True HD & DTS Master HD sound capability with other 5.1 decoding options.
