Summary: Do not think I could match the value and quality that I am getting from this receiver. At 90 bucks with Polk monitor 50 Series II on Sale for 70 bucks each and a Pinicle center speaker for about the same, this set up could not be beat. I purchased Polk sub 10 inch for 90$ then added Polk r300 for another 150$. that is 5.1 FOR 450.00$!! I'm telling you that this sound and quality can not be beat anywhere for the price. Sound is perfect for any apartment and mid size home.
Summary: Three years ago we purchased an Insignia DVD player. Now it is outdated and will not play new Blu rays . We called Insignia regarding this, and they said tough luck. One manager went as far as you say the customer is always wrong. Please spread the word on this share this with everyone you know. I can't believe a company would be so awful. After 3 years a Blu ray player will not work on new movies anymore .
Summary: Used as my primary receiver with all HDMI components connected to a LED rear projection. Main reason I went with this one was because of the 4 HDMI inputs and got it as a HTIB which included 5 speakers. Worked fine for 5 months and started having odd moments when we'd lose sound. Tried toggling it on off and would get the sound back. Now 6 months in and it's completely dead.
Summary: This is my bedroom receiver. It works and sounds better than what I was expecting. I am very please with this product. I would to add that I bought the matching wireless sub as well. It does not produce a lot of bass. However, you can improve it's response by placing it inside of something else. This would allow it to act as a secondary sound chamber. And don't forget the wireless card you'll need for the receiver, enjoy!
