Using a Banana Plug Will Damage your Speaker AND Receiver
28 January 2014
Summary: After connecting a banana plug to every channel without issue, I plug the final banana plug into the front-right channel port and hear a loud pop sound. The front-right channel port is placed very closely below the RCA port.
Summary: Could not give 0 star so it gets 1 (a unit fully worthy of negative marking). Update (3rd unit, 02/11/2014) So the media player (music from PC) part of third unit survived less than a month (same as the second unit). The output of media player is down to almost 0.
Summary: Bought this 2 months ago. During the period, video output to TV did not work twice: no video output to TV at all other than noises. To resolve this, the first time was to reset the received to factory default and second time was to unplug/replug the power cord back.
