Summary: I've had this for 8 years now and use it just about every day. The sound, whether it is from the coaxial audio cable coming from my DVD player or my occasional use of a great, old turntable, is excellent.
Summary: This receiver did its job very well. The sound output was acceptable for the setup that I was running and never had any problems no matter what level I had it set to. It does run a bit warm but as long as you have some space around it that shouldn't be a problem.
Summary: Sounds good, but I bought a refurb unit and it smells really bad. I have smelt this smell before in new receivers, but never this strong and never this bad. I am worried the smell will not go away, maybe others can chime in and let me know if they had this smell when it was new?
Summary: This receiver fits every use I need, for home theater and just as a receiver. Has lots of power, which really makes my older tower speakers sound completely different! Added a JBL sub and will be adding some Bose 901's shortly to round out the system.
Summary: I like this receiver very much. I am not an audio pro, so I will not talk about sound quality and so on. To me it sounds good and that is all there is. However, I am more on PC side of things and I got it to wirlessly connect to my laptop, so I can control the music in the house from any place.
For pre-digital video switching, this is the one to get.

Summary: I was looking for a receiver that would switch whatever kind of anaolg video (i.e. composite, S-video, or component) and output component video. My TV is analog and good, so I have no use for digital video in or out.
Summary: I am not into the home theater stuff but do like my stereo. This receiver sounds great and the wireless PC connection prevented me from having to look for a CD player that can play MP3's. For someone not familiar with home theater, connecting this can be confusing.
Summary: Phew -- of all things I needed over the busy holiday weekend -- my beloved old NAD "front" power amp lost a channel. I know that this means a two to three hundred dollar repair bill, so I decided it was time to pop for a modern, gulp, home theater receiver.
