Wow...what a receiver.

  • Summary: This receiver is wonderful. Slim, sleek styling. A great addition to any decor. The sound is mind blowing when married with my Bose speakers. The features are to many to name but make having the receiver a must have.

Poorly designed product - heats up like an oven

Deryl Strong, Amazon
25 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought this receiver last year to work with a new LCD TV, and placed it in a walk-in closet in my bedroom behind the wall the TV was installed on. The closet has good ventilation, and has the cable DVR and separate DVD player on a small rack, without any problems, both running without much heat at all. After installing this item on the rack, the temp in the closet went up significantly, and I could smell an electrical/hot plastic aroma.

Very nice line of receivers for a great price

tuckermaclain, Ebay

  • Summary: Love the sound processing. Love the equalizer. Digital inputs. & channels + sub. Some people have complained because they run hotter than most. The reason is that they run just as hot but are smaller and your hands can get closer to the heat sinks. With taller receivers their is more physical separation from the sink. Imagine holding your hand closer to a heater then moving it away from the same heater and you'll get the idea.

Does not pick up radio (neither does replacement unit!)...JVC Support POOR

California, Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: My father in law bought this on amazon for his wife for christmas. I set it up over the holidays to replace their aging receiver (which still worked but was long in the tooth and the display no longer worked...). When I set up the RX-D301S using the existing cables, the multi CD player worked fine. HOWEVER, the receiver did not pick up AM or FM signal at all - using the existing antenna hookups from the previous receiver, nor the new ones in the box. No static - nothing.

hdgates, Ebay
8 February 2009
  • Summary: I love the receiver, however it was close to impossible to hook up, we had two different people who have expertise working on it, and could not get it to do dolby surround, the second person read the manual over the weekend and worked on it again, he finally called the company and all the setting were incorrect. He reset everything and it now works fine.

JVC home theater receiver

bluewaveking, Ebay
4 January 2009
  • Summary: This bad boy rocks! It drives my Infinity studio monitors with no problems. Pop in a Blu-ray disc and fire up the 50" Hitachi. Voila! You're at the theater. Awesome product. The USB transmitter is a really cool toy. Digital ins & outs, fiber optic, S-video, component, USB; it's got it all. Would I recommend it to anyone else? Absolutely.

Preliminary review

A. Hume, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: Haven't really tried the receiver but the product was delivered promptly, packed well, and in good shape. I got this particular product, the JVC RX-D301S, mainly because it was the only 7.1 AV Receiver that was low-height enough to fit in the space I have. Other reviews have complained about overheating. The low height plus the fact that the top has no ventilation holes might contribute to that.

sent it back

tap, Amazon
9 October 2008
  • Summary: The USB thing was very cool. But, in spite of being in a well-ventilated space, with nothing stacked upon it, it kept getting too hot. It would also cut out if volume was turned up even moderately. Eventually, it wouldn't even turn on at all - just shut itself back down again. Could also never get more than the primary two speakers going, except during the speaker test.
