Great Receiver

Robert B. Cline "60's lover", Amazon
29 August 2008
  • Summary: I've had this receiver for about 5 years with no problems, the sound clarity and seperation is fantastic. This receiver runs a little hot, but I paired mine with 100 watt boston acoustic speakers, and have had no problem with blown fuses.

good receiver

  • Summary: I have had Sony and Kenwood and now this Panasonic. I have been happy for 3 years so far with no problems at all and no regrets. The sound is very clear and for the money you cannot beat it. I am going to invest in a new receiver this year and will try a high end brand with HDMI converter.

For the money, it is very hard to beat.

Rich S. "DownSouth", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this unit since December 2004. It is used about 15 hours a week. This is not an $800-1000 surround receiver, but it does many things very well. FOR THE PRICE it deserves 5 stars. 3.5 - 4 stars if not considering price.

Way too complex and failure prone

J. Stonier "Music Madness", Amazon
28 November 2005
  • Summary: The unit I first took home had a blown channel. Exchanged it without any problem other than wasting half a day of my time. Then it worked fine for more than a year. Lately it started display F70 when I turn it on and I have to turn it on and off many times until it comes to life.

Great Price, Nice Sound Quality, lots of inputs!

Jean Buillet, Amazon
11 April 2005
  • Summary: Before buying a receiver I searched out all sorts of brands and price ranges like I do everytime I buy a product. Usually, I end up becoming enamored by the most expensive product and shell out the big bucks to have the best.

Good Receiver at a great price

J. Higdon "jh", Amazon
24 September 2003
  • Summary: It's true, this receiver isn't the most powerful or certainly the easiest to use; however, it does do exactly what it advertises itself to do. And, that's a lot. It delivers reasonable 6.1 sound, and gives you a fairly pure sound that is quite distinct in its channeled effect.

Just say (maybe) to SA-HE200

  • Summary: "F70" Same problem as the other reviewer. I have had this receiver for 9 months and now it is again dead. The F70 error means that an internal fuse has blown. It is not user replaceable and you must send off to repair center. Edit: Based on further info, I upgraded from 1 star to 3 stars.

Beware of the fine print

Amazon
12 May 2003
  • Summary: I bought this receiver thinking it will deliver 130w through "all" channels. WRONG! It does 100w RMS thru 2 channels only. Other channels peak at 130w at 1kHz. The result is you barely hear any surround effects. Besides, controls are really hard on this, especially when configuring your speakers.

3.5 stars to be exact

michael crow, Amazon
8 February 2003
  • Summary: For $350, this is a very competitive receiver. When you throw in the free rear speaker, this is the best value in the price range. This receiver can handle anything you can throw at it, except THX-ES.
