Cannot Detect Server!!

R. Lynch III "bigdicktater", Amazon
6 July 2007
  • Summary: I've owned this receiver now over a year. Overall, it's been pretty good with the exception of the network function, which has never worked (cannot detect server). I've allowed it thru all firewalls and even connected a cat 5 cable straight from the cpu to the receiver( bypassing the router); same...

  • Summary: I ordered one of these receivers from Target. Had the same error as two other purchasers (straight into Standby mode after powering up) I returned it and ordered another (figured what was the likelihood it would happen again?) Guess what? The SECOND one was broken as well.

Lots of functionality for the price

  • Summary: I was looking for a receiver with decent performance (wattage, THD etc), but my main requirements were network functionality and Dolby headphone. It also has a suprisingly large number of Inputs for such a slim form-factor.

A very satisfied customer

J. Dodge, Amazon
7 December 2005
  • Summary: I bought this unit in November. It replaced an older multicomponent Kenwood system. It was very easy to install and the overall performance has been great, both audio and video. I got a new 7.1 speaker system and have a 52" TV. Also have XM radio connected to it.

Crap

Scott A. Culbertson, Amazon
28 November 2005
  • Summary: The bad: Defective out of the box, turned out to be a manufacturing defect that Kenwood is well aware of. I made the mistake of not researching it on the internet before purchasing. Networking functionality is clunky. The good: Can't say, still waiting for Kenwood to repair it and ship it back. :(

Wonderfull Receiver

  • Summary: I did a lot of research when looking for a new low profile receiver for my home theater. Being small was important, but I wanted something that sounded great too. I read great reviews on the Panasonic SA-XR50S and Onkyo TXLR-552S which fit the bill, but I was really enticed by the Kenwood VRS-N8100...

  • Summary: After 7 years with my old Kenwood 1080VR, I was in the market for a new receiver to take me through the next several years of technology. This VRS-N8100 Networked receiver does just that.
