I don't need HDMI or the new fancy lossless codecs like TrueHD or DTS-HD since I have 2.0 speakers.

  • Summary: I just picked up one of these now antiques on Ebay for less than $50 shipped and it still works well. Since I only use 2.0 speakers and maybe soon 2.1 (I want a subwoofer soon, amybe the HS10W or HS8S) this fits the bill perfectly.

elnorr, Ebay
3 June 2008
  • Summary: Solid power and clean, full sound. Although it doesn't have THX or any of the newer features you can find in newer receivers like video upconversion, it produces great stereo performance and convincing movie effects. All in All - great value for the money.

  • Summary: I purchased this amp/receiver about a month ago and had it hooked up the night it arrived. The setup is kind of confusing at first but once you figure it out (what the manual is saying) it isn't too much trouble.

Still GREAT After 1 Year!

Rob "k_mann", Amazon
29 August 2000
  • Summary: It runs on 45 amps. Simply put this is the number you should be looking at. Other receivers at higher price points run less amps compensating with more watts. I auditioned an Onkyo (36 amps I think & 105 watts/channel) with the HK AVR500 (45 amps & 80 watts/channel).
