Good commercial choice out of the big low end suppliers.

centreoftheearth, Ebay

  • Summary: Actually sounds quite nice; much better than the Pioneer 203 that I had. JVC equipment is my favorite for the current big commercial suppliers. I bought a well functioning used unit for about 21 bucks delivered!

Lot's 'o' features but poor sound

DutchBird "dutchbird", Amazon
18 March 2004
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this inexpensive but powerful home theater receiver as the foundation of my new home audio and (eventually) home theater system -- a repleacement for my 25+ year old Sherwood 7250CP audio-only receiver. No go. After unpacking and sorting out which features I needed to initialize first, I got it plugged in, connected and fired up an audio CD on my trusty Sony carousel player and piped the sound through a pair of reliable Ambient bookcase speakers ...

High end receiver at a low end price...

nagappa, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a professional sounding receiver at a low end price. It produces wonderful sound when connected to a good set of speakers. I first used the receiver with a pair of old Bose 301 speakers. I can honestly say that I have never heard the Bose 301 speakers sound better! There was clearly more definition and overall response than with my old Sony receiver. Finally, I connected the receiver to my Cerwin Vega AVS-5.1 speaker set (reviewed separately).

Great Bang for the Buck

Hollywood Soundman, Amazon
19 January 2004
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying I mix sound for movies and TV. I am very aware of how my shows should sound and I'm very impressed with the sound of this unit. The Dolby Pro Logic II is outstanding! This unit is easy to use and is simple to set up. The remote is very small, it could be larger, but it works well. If you want a fine sounding unit at a very reasonable price with a fair amount of options look no further.

My first Home Theater Receiver

DutchBird "dutchbird", Amazon
2 December 2003
  • Summary: I can't imagine going for an upgrade later. The sound is crystal clear. Setup was easy. The multi-function remote is not perfect, but it is the best one of the six that came with my components. One feature that I'm particularly pleased with is the ability to clean up the sound from less than great sources (like local TV programing). An excellent buy for the price.

Great sound, maybe not for vinyl fans

Sara E Kelley, Amazon
26 November 2003
  • Summary: This receiver has fantastic sound for the price, and gobs of inputs and outputs. The only downside is that it does not have a phono input or groundwire terminal. You can plug your turntable into one of the other composite inputs, but without the ground it doesn't sound quite right. CD, TV, VHS and DVD all sound great!

A clunky remote, but otherwise solid

Mike in Texas, Amazon
23 August 2003
  • Summary: If you choose the 6030, you are probably drawn by the low price and wealth of audio (and video) input options. It has lots of S-video inputs, a component in, and several audio options. The remote is small and feels fragile with about 14000 buttons. I generally like the unit, but it isn't out of my 30-day period yet and I am considering returning it in part because it generates a low-frequency vibration or hum when turned on.

Looks good, if I get it...

Sean Cunningham, Amazon
26 June 2003
  • Summary: This is just a warning -- I've read great reviews about the receiver, but you might want to know that the "Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours" part is a bit off. I've been waiting about 168 hours so far, and I just got notified that there's an even longer delay. If you can actually get a hold of one of these receivers, I'm sure you'll love it, but the 'getting' is the tricky part.

Great Sound for the Price!!!

d.carson "dc_therock", Amazon

  • Summary: Just set my system up and love it! Lots of ways to adjust the sounds on each speaker. Various sound settings make it very configurable. What I love is that I can pipe all of my stuff (DVD, CD, VHS, etc.) through here and it all sounds great. Are there better systems out there? Sure. However, you'll have to pay a lot more money. If you want an inexpensive Home Theater reciever I would definitely recommend this JVC.
