still kicking and very tough to replace

KG, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: This receiver sounds beautiful, and is able to handle my 4 ohm axiom m80 towers with ease. I just bought an hdmi switcher to give me more hdmi connections, I may go with this setup for a while. Connect an apple tv to this receiver and it has most everything I need. 5 years later, I am still amazed by the sound quality. I wish panasonic would have continued with their digital receivers, I would be purchasing one right now.

Panasonic hit another homerun!

St.Louis Rams, Amazon
4 August 2008
  • Summary: After reading so many reviews complaining about its video features, I still decided to go with XR57, the successor to XR55 THE GREAT simply because of the great audio output and XR57 certainly did not disappoint me at all. The sound is absolutely stunning from a sub-$300 amp. Paired with my Mirage OMNI 550, the sound is crystal clear with a plenty of punch at the low end.

Great practical, full featured home theater receiver!

James R. Torrico "Neighborhood Tech-support", Amazon
20 July 2008
  • Summary: I was looking diligently for a home theater receiver that didn't require previous Jet Fighter Pilot experience to navigate through the numerous features. Although I would have no problem, I was setting up a home theater for my family, that they should be able to use without calling "Tech Support" (read that as "Me"!) to just watch a movie. I also have a 32" Panasonic LCD (TC-32LX85 - highly recommended) with the Viera Link system that I was hoping to use.

It Delivers.

A. Michel "Gadget Geek", Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: I upgraded to this from an aging and ailing Aiwa receiver I purchased just before the end of the millennium. While the old girl had served me quite well, eventually her time had come. After a significant amount of consideration and consulting with my local A/V expert, I settled on the XR57 as the ideal blend of price and performance for my setup. In the price range of this receiver, there is absolutely no competition.

Much better than you'd think

John, Amazon
19 July 2007
  • Summary: Right out of the box I was happy. I replaced my Kenwood with the Panasonic and was not dissapointed. My main reason was to have wireless rear surround speakers. I also had to buy the rear surround setup, which I bouight referb'd. Something I can expect to function properly, and I was not dissapointed. They work perfectly. Also, I wanted a receiver that was more with the current technology, again, not dissapointed. The Pan is not perfect, but for me it fit the bill.

Very Nice

  • Summary: I have had this system for only two days now, but I love it. Keep in mind that I am not an "audiofile". This is my first upgrade since the 1980's, so I can't really compare it to anything. I do know that it sounds incredibly good and very powerful. Can't wait to hear it with more expensive speakers and higher quality speaker wires. If you are the type that likes to jump right in without reading the owners manual, at least read page 14 before you try listening to in.

Incredible sound quality, no 1080p. Aaaahhh!!!

Daniel J. Zajic, Amazon
23 February 2007
  • Summary: I love this thing. However, it might be going back to the store because it can't handle 1080p! I'm dissappointed. I should have read the owner's manual not just the specs on the store's website. I could simply connect the Oppo directly to my TV and use optical/coax for audio, but if I ever get a 1080p HD-DVD player I will either miss out on TrueHD audio or be limited to 1080i. Such a small nitpick, but I'm a perfectionist. Maybe I can get over it.
