Summary: Then the nasty intermittent loss-of-sound problem hit me. I was thinking it was due to loose connection, overheating/overloading, until I checked again here on Amazon. I am NOT alone... When I bought this piece of junk, the overall review was good.
Summary: Thank goodness I found these reviews! I was going insane trying to fix my setup. Checked all my connections, all my other devices, etc... It just turns out that the receiver is junk. Hate to toss it, but guess I will. Lasted about 3 years, which is pretty bad if you ask me.
Summary: I have to say this for all who are insterted in this unit. When I first got it it worked good. It was a little hard to first set up. This was my second A/V receiver, the first was an RCA (and that one still works after 7 years). After about a year and a half the left channel went out.
Summary: After almost 2 years, I've developed a big problem with the center channel cutting out intermittently. Sometimes I can crank the volume up to a LOUD level (briefly and then turn back down) and the problem is fixed. If not, turning the receiver power on and off usually fixes it.
After 2 Years - the Sound is cutting out intermittantly like everyone elses reviews.

Summary: This was trouble free for 2 years, now the Sound is cutting out of the Center Channel like so many have reported. Double checked all the wiring - subbed in a different center channel, it cuts out intermittantly still. Many have noted that they had to crank the volume or turn it off/on to fix.
