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: 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.
Summary: Having recently upgraded my home theatre system I needed a multi-channel audio video receiver that would supply multiple input control and functionality in a relatively compact space. I wanted a receiver that would provide HDMI switching and be capable of powering large, wide range speakers.
Summary: I received this receiver a couple days ago and had many problems with setup. I wanted this device for a couple of reasons, mainly because it includeded HDMI switching but also because my 42" LCD hangs on the wall and my components are about 35 feet away and I didn't want to run cables for every...
Summary: I was disappointed at first because you only get 4 video switches: DVD,VCR,DBS, and AUX. But it's actually better than this since you can dynamically select where (HDMI,Comp,S or C) these inputs come from (Note that only VCR and DVD have the HDMI option).
Summary: Also, I would like to point out, that I have this receiver hooked up to a mix of computer speakers and old stereo speakers. The JVC reciever took the spot of, what i considered a high end receiver, that cost well over $2000 and was only a year old.
Pros: The receiver hits all the ranges. Awesome sound for the price. If you have a laptop with windows media player, the USB wireless feature is a great perk and easy to setup. The gaming experience is pretty amazing. Movies are even better. I have seen and heard several different receivers and the JVC...
Cons: Runs pretty hot. A little difficult to hook all the inputs up and select them.
Summary: this is a great receiver - it doesn't have 20 different inputs for your 4 devices, but you know what? i only have a handful of inputs and they are all digital anyhow! i can't remember the last time i watched a VHS movie and odn't even own a VCR. record player? before my time...
Summary: I have had a few receivers and have never really been completely happy with any. Either one was one input too short or the digital input was the wrong type. But this one is the best I have had. And the fact that it is so small is great.
