Summary: This receiver is outstanding! As always seems to be the case with JVC, the instruction manual is difficult to understand in many ways. However, since I've been buying JVC products since 1992, I didn't have too much trouble. I really love the USB wireless transmitter which allows me to send music from my computer to the receiver.
Summary: This is an excellent receiver. Its slim profile and hitech appearance make it a great unit for any setting. You don't have to hid this one in a cabinet. The flexibility it provides for inputs and outputs is astounding. But, plan on spending some time with the manual setting up the unit as the on screen menu offers a lot of choices and settings. Once you get it all set up though you won't be disappointed.
Summary: This unit is a good high end amp/pre-amp for your home theatre. You can spend more, but not get much better. It allows control of all 7 channels seperatly, has a lot of filters to modify the sound, and I especially like the dimmer. This feature allows the front lights to be dimmed or turned off so as to not create a visual distraction when viewing your Video display. I added an amped sub-woofer and have just what I wanted.
Summary: Excellent product. It sounds great and has ample power. It looks sleek and it is compact. The wirless USB is a nice touch. It does run hot, that's probably due to the digital amplification. My new RXD-702b has successfully taken the place of my old system. This was because the old system was too bulky -- (4) 250 watt mono-clock amps anlong with preamp, etc. Initally I was not sure that the new receiver could keep up with that level of power.
