Summary: Love love love this receiver! Purchased it about 6 months ago for my home theater and never looked back! So much functionality, and provides the best sound ever! Plus, what a great price! Would definitely recommend to all who are interested!
Summary: easy set up and configuration. I'm not using a center channel so really only 4.1. But this reciever helped me configure so everything works great with on screen set up. best part is that it is passive so you do not need it on to watch tv with out surround sound.
Summary: The first one I ordered failed, and figured it was a fluke, so got another, and I was right it was a fluke, the second one I got works great! Plenty of Volume, easy to set up. I would give it 5 stars if it had more inputs, theres only three HDMI inputs.
Summary: Very poor quality product. Worked for a few months, but now the HDMI signal drops of constantly. I cannot get any picture to my TV using this device. Firmware upgrade, factory reset, more HDMI cables than you can imagine and this device just wont work.
Summary: This unit is advertised by Demon as being 165 watts per channel X 5 channels. Even on their own website they explicitly say you get 5 channels of 165 watt power! Then if you read on, you start seeing discrepancies, like 165 watts per channel @ 8 ohms into 5 channels, then a bit further it says 165...
Great sound, but functions/settings are only available depending on which peripherals are connected

Summary: Sound wise, this is amazing. It works well, packs a punch and will not let you down. However, from a usability perspective it has lots of flaws. The worse one is how functions are encapsulated within peripherals. For example, there are functions ONLY accessible on the remote control.
Summary: This is my first AVR and it is easy enough to install and get it working. The design is very modern and good looking. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because (It could be my ignorance about AVRs) that RCA video input will not go in the HDMI output.
Great receiver, but will not mix video source and output types.

Summary: This is a wonderful reciever. Easy to hook up, easy to configure, and puts out some nice volume. The reason it only gets 4 stars is that you cannot mix and match video sources to video outputs. Namely, you cannot have an RCA (Red-yellow-white plugs) input go to an HDMI output.
Summary: Works great! The unit tends to run hot so I have to make sure it is in a well ventilated area. It is in a cabinet so I leave the door open. I am using the optical port for audio out on the deck.

Summary: An improvement over the Onkyo for sure. Very simple to set up and the sound has a "presence" or an "in the room" sound. Powerful. Simple and no BS as the busted Onkyo seemed to be. That sound seemed artificial and from behind the speakers. This new puppy presents the music as if it's in your lap.
