Summary: I have two of these receivers because for 150 wpc continuous power X 7 they are cheap, however input switching is faulty with the identical switching problem in both units. Only the TV input output works properly, after I tried everything JVC suggested, but did not offer to fix under warranty for...
Summary: I've had this unit for approximately 1 year. The good part is that the audio and video through this receiver work well: HDTV picture looks great and the surround sounds great. I only use the HDMI inputs and outputs, but they work fine. I have another issue with the unit: it runs hot.
Summary: Returned item. It wasnt exactly what I was looking for. It was as sleak as it looks. I've always trusted JVC, but decided to go to Onkyo this time. JVC has kind of moved away form personal component recievers. Looks like they are more interested in the full package entertainment systems.
Summary: I bought this unit refurbished from Amazon. If I hadn't been told it was refurbished when I got it it would have been very easy to believe it was new. I have the unit connected to Samsung TV, Oppo DVD player, Mirage 5.1 Nanosat speakers, and Panasonic DVD/VCR recorder.
Summary: Waited over a year for this so as to have the cash to buy it. Got it home, plugged it in and like a champ off it went. Couple of things still surprised me after watching this and reading every review done on it.
Summary: I bought this receiver over 2 years ago and have sent it back to JVC 4 times. Except for the time that it wouldn't turn on at all, JVC denied that there is any problem. The unit shuts down sporadically with any minor blip in volume whether from a dvd, xbox or tv.
Summary: Cannot output 1080p from PS3 to monitor when using HDMI. You Have to set PS3 to 1080i, then will it work OR have PS3 HDMI go to monitor, then have the optical audio output from monitor go to JVC, if your monitor has that option.
Pros: With HDMI switching and analog to digital conversion I literally have only one cable running to the TV, and the sound output is pretty incredible as well. The receiver can decode anything I throw at it and has more features than I know what to do with.
Cons: Runs rather hot and should be kept in a well-ventilated area. An additional HDMI input or two would have been nice as well, but I'll take what I can get.
Summary: I had this unit for nearly 2 years now. I like the video up conversion quality and up convert analog cable and vcr pictures really well. I know the heat issue and placed the unit where side ventiliation espcially left side is very good and never had any issue.
