  • Summary: I bought the TX-SR875 to replace a Denon AVR-5700 which was their top of the line 7-8 years ago. Although CE products are always dropping in price I wasn't sure that this receiver could replace the Denon although it had the Reon chip. I was wrong.

Another problem some may experience

Originalffd, Amazon

  • Summary: I received mine and got it all hooked up. Overall I like the receiver, plenty of HDMI ports for me, power, sounds good, etc. But, something was driving me crazy for the longest time and I couldn't figure it out, then one day it hit me...the audio had a fraction of a second delay over the video.

Synthpilot, Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: I've been an audio repair tech for some 22 years and in that time, I've always thought in the back of my mind that 95% of the failures were customer induced. I will never think that again!
