Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace a 15 year old Technics receiver that finally died on me, and I've always been a big fan of Panasonic brands but I was on a budget so I bought this one instead of the top of the line model that I really wanted. This receiver is a little light in the features department to be considered a "Home Theater Receiver". Lack of HDMI and component inputs really limits this for home theater.
Summary: Super unit for the price - unless you are pushing it out through $3,000.00 speakers, you will never outclass it for value. I use it primarily for my home theatre in my living room, but almost as much to play music through. Bottom line - good unit for a great price.
Summary: Understanding that this is not the latest technology, this receiver works very well with my Panny plasma, Samsung DVD recorder, Sony VCR, and SDAT 5 piece speaker system. No component or S-vid inputs, but has 3 optical inputs which works great running my system with the plasma as the core. This receiver just handles the audio and it does this very well!
Summary: This receiver was purchased as a replacement for a Panasonic SA-HE 100 that was struck by lightning..Although it is not as fine as the old one it has served me well...With the loss of hearing response because of my age and the fact I live in a apartment and do not wish to force my neighbors to listen to my choices of music the SA-HE75 serves me well...
Summary: Yes, Ill admit this is not the strongest receiver at the gym but What's written below shows no understanding of amplifier power, specs, or the ability to " do the job". Unless you play movies and Cd's at literally eardrum splitting volume the Panasonic has all the power you'll ever need in a home theater setting with " average" speakers. To say that the receiver cuts out at 40hz is just plain ignorant.
Summary: I had been powering my Polk rti-12 and rti-10 loudspeakers with 2 biamped SA-HE75 receivers for about a year, until I got my HK AVR-240s. Over that year I encountered no real problems, other than the lack of power.(Hence the biamping) I don't recommend this Panasonic for anything larger than very small floorstanding speakers with only mid/high frequency requirements. Bookshelf speakers or satellites would be perfectly fine.
If price is a factor to you than this is your receiver

Summary: Before people get all worked up there are obviously better receivers out there, but for $142.00 with free shipping? Not that I have found. This receiver replaced my 10-year old Techniques receiver which recently died. The one downside to this box is that it does not have video component inputs. This is not a real issue to me as I don't use my box for video switching, I go right to the TV.
Summary: Really wicked amp for the price, great sound but it runs a little warm so I don't stack anything on it that doesn't provide space between for air circulation. I paired this amp with a set of Reference audio R82T floor model speakers, cranked up the Sepultura and now my neighbours have a reason to officially hate me. Loud and clear.
Summary: I bought the Panasonic SA-HE75 receiver after trying out another one. I'm very impressed with this unit. I've connected an equalizer to it to draw that extra punch. The first(and only) sound test was the T-Rex scene from "Jurassic Park", I was blown away. Enuff said. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good/solid receiver @ a budget. And for any tech. related questions, Panasonic.com is a great help. Enjoy!!!!
Summary: Bought this to replace an aging Yamaha stereo receiver and move up to a home theater receiver. First things first, you cannot beat the price! This sounds really good for home theater, it weighs a ton, it runs real hot. However, if you listen to music mostly, I'd stick with Yamaha or Onkyo. For some reason I can't get this to crank out like my Yamaha could. Four stars for a good receiver at a great price. But like with most everything you get what you pay for.
