It's a quality product

L. Miceli, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros-Low energy consumption and yet plenty of volume Many connections. Two digital coax and two optical. Whenever the input is digital, the display shows which speakers are receiving information from the source so you know if you are truly getting dolby digital 5.1 or dts etc.

  • Summary: I've had this unit for 2 weeks now. So far, the only issue I've had is reassigning the DVR's Digital input from Optical (default) to Coaxial won't work (I had to run out to buy an optical cable to get it to work).

  • Summary: A little difficult to learn all the menu options without the book. Once you understand it, it performs quite well.

Superb sound at a budget

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Without getting into nitty-gritty details of the receiver, I can say without any doubt that it sounds hundred times better. For the first time I hear highs that are so prominent and bass that is so immense, in the same pair of speakers that were once hooked to an Onkyo 5.1 receiver.

Incredible quality for Inexpensive Receiver

Vide8, Amazon
29 July 2007
  • Summary: I am very impressed with the audio quality that rivals much higher end models. The sound is simply amazing. If you can find one, it's some of the cleanest, present sound I've heard in a consumer deck.

Good deal on a surprisingly good sounding reciever.

C. Miller, Amazon
28 July 2007
  • Summary: Amplification technology sure has changed (finally!). This uses a new digital "switching" technology from a company called Tripath. It's vastly more efficient than standard old transistor amps. Also, the sound quality is remarkable.

Musically, one of the best things I've ever done for myself

R. Muir, Amazon
25 July 2007
  • Summary: I used to have a similarly priced Yamaha HTR-5540 receiver, which was connected to my computer via an optical cable to a great soundcard, the turtle beach riviera. To go with this receiver, I had all of the budget audiophile components recommended by stereophile magazine.

Excellent Product!

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This was easy to set up, provides many outputs and works perfectly. Some standout features are: ability to turn off/change level of subwoofer, surround sound options (can set up to hear back speakers even when program is not broadcast in surround), many inputs/outputs and an easy-to-use remote.

many features

Ashmeed Mohammed, Amazon
23 July 2007
  • Summary: this amp has many features, powerfull for a small system, but many of the functions need to be operated only on the amp it self or only with the remote, which is kind of annoying. Functions need to be equally available on both the remote and the amp. other than that, it's great!

Overall an excellent value

JWWII, Amazon
21 July 2007
  • Summary: For the most part this is a decent receiver at a GREAT price. It plays extremely loudly and cleanly (I can't bear to go above about -15 on the dial before threshold of pain sets in). The ability to bi-wire my front speakers with dedicated high frequency and low frequency channels was great.
