Outstanding value for an AV receiver!

  • Summary: Great value for an AV receiver. Sound is excellent, for both home theater viewing, and listening to music. Packed with many features you usually do not see as this price. One drawback to this receiver is that surround sound audio is not passed through HDMI connection. If a TV is connected, audio sound will play through the TV, but not in surround sound. A separate digital connection (optical or coaxial) is required to have full surround sound.

Great Receiver but...

Jason A "Jason A", Amazon

  • Summary: This Receiver is great and does everything it's suppose to, but do not buy if you have HD components(PS3, Blu Ray players etc.) that you wish to listen to in surround sound with HDMI cables. I hooked my Playstation 3 up to this receiver thinking I would be able to play my video games in surround sound using a HDMI cable. The Fact is The HDMI ports only feed through and doesn't process though the receiver.

Good value for the price.

  • Summary: I bought this receiver to use for my main music source in the house (it's not hooked up to a tv). I like that you don't have to have an extra adaptor for the ipod - it plugs right into the front of the unit and stays charged continuously. The remote control is a little tricky to get used to for controlling the ipod, but I anticipate that getting easier as I get used to it. The sound quality is very good.

Cannot feed component into hdmi

V. Shah "vss", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: The idea was to run a single hdmi cable to the side of my low profile wall mounted TV. So I get this receiver, plug my cable box using component because that was how it was connected to tv before. To my surprise it did not work through hdmi output. Then after reading the manual carefully, it does state that component video goes to component of TV, not through hdmi. I don't want to run another 3 wires to TV. Then next is the fun part.

  • Summary: OMG I am hearing things that I never heard before from my speakers, which are no slouches. After hooking up all of the components and cables I am really amazed at what a great 5.1 unit this is. There is at least 20% more power in this unit than any other comporably priced unit. I upgraded from a top notch unit by JVC which had 100 Watts and I thought that was pretty cool. Forget that, having more power is incredible what it can bring to the sound stage.
