Summary: I purchased it for a gift for a coworker. He loves it and is his first real stero reciever. I paired it with a great set of advent speakers and a dual turntable for his records. He is a happy camper.
Summary: I am writing this review probably 3 years after my purchase of this receiver. I still can't believe the amazing product that I received for the price. I have all 5.1 channels connected and it sounds amazing. I haven't even used all of the connections that are available on it.
Summary: I bought this receiver used about a year ago as a replacement to an early 90's Sony receiver when the controller on it fried after many years of diligent service. My setup at the time was a 4 channel with no subwoofer, and that's all I was looking to power.
Summary: The receiver came in perfect condition in it's original box and packing material with all the documents and accessories. It arrived on time and was a great deal for the money! If it would have had blue-tooth, or wireless rear speakers I would have given it 5 stars.
Summary: As a long time audiophile (since the 60's), I've gotten rather set in my ways. On the other hand, I've usually been an early adopter of new technology. This receiver was a logical step in updating my now all-digital system (LCD TV, multimedia hard drive, DVD/CD player, DVR, etc.).
Summary: This unit works my stereo system just fine, running four speakers from the two mains, for that use, good value. Other speaker ports only put out low sound. Not sure if this how it is supposed to work. Could not get it to work the surround sound speakers fed from TV/DVD.
Highly recemended! this was the cheapest, most powerful Reciver!

Summary: For the price I think I made out on this one. I had just spent most of my budget on the 61" TV I had been drooling over for months but instead of taking a breath after I found the cheapest price for the TV I wanted. I just ordered it.
Summary: I was a optimus man with all optimus components. When it was time to replace, I tried the pioneer. I knew of its great reputation, but have to admit I have been blown away by its capabilities and sleek design.
