Summary: This receiver was purchased to accomodate an HTPC digital sound library with enough pure clean power, to drive a custom built, old school JBL (4311 platform) Paragon system, to its full amphitheater potential. A great match, of low THD, WRAT power, and driving impedence forgiveness. (4 ohm to 16 . . . . it does not care) The connectivity options are amazingly diverse. Star wars, shakes the house . . .
Summary: Pros: Very easy to uses, good input/output. I hooked it up with JBL L830, polk csi3 center speaker, and Polk PW305 woofer. The system sound marvelous. Receiver makes those speakers sound so good. The receiver produces the power that it lists. Great receiver for the price that you pay. I owned a Harmon Kardon AVR 520 before this one. I would say that they are about the same, but the Harmon kardon is much more harder to use.
