Summary: I purchased this receiver from Amazon last April. I have had no problems with it at all. The sound is really good and is an attractive unit as well. I'm happy with my purchase I reccomend the vsx 821k as it is the same receiver with some improvements for a little more
Summary: I did not need the 7.1 or 6.1 and wanted HDMI switching capability as well as a B channel for exterior speakers. This amplifier was easy to set up (with self test microphone for adjusting speaker delays and loudness) and works well. Sound is clean and full from USB, tuner, DVD, and CD inputs.
Summary: I was waiting to write a review as I wanted to use it for couple of weeks atleast before saying anything. I saw few people saying IPOD connection stops working after few weeks, I wanted to make sure that is not the case with me, luckily, it is not.
Summary: I'll try not to repeat some of the great reviews, but if you are looking for a well priced, full functioned AV receiver, look no further. Most of the negative responses on this unit have been from people that really should have spent 5 times more for their product.
Perfect entry-level receiver for most audio set-ups!

Summary: I spent a lot of time researching affordable receivers with decent feature-sets, and this one fits the bill. Some people have complained that the instructional booklet is needlessly complex. Not true. It's thick because it's been translated into 5-plus languages.
Summary: This is my first receiver/surround sound. I got these with the Polk RM705. Pros: Really nice sound quality and the receiver does what I need it to do. Also easy to hook up. Cons: While hooking it up I was testing with the iPod connector and it made popping sounds from my speakers, havn't tried it...
Summary: After researching many receivers for under $300, this one fit the bill perfectly. More than enough inputs which most people would need with 4 HDMI and plenty of analog, delivers great quality sound with power you wouldnt expect from a cheaper receiver, and it looks so damn pretty.
Summary: I bought this receiver to run sound for my 42" 120hz LED tv, blue ray player and ps3 in my apartment, and also use it for listening to music. This is a great Receiver for an entry level surround set up. I'm running 2 Polk audio monitor50's, as well as a Polk sub, center channel and satellites.
Summary: I was looking for a quality home theater system. I looked at the Bose home theatre but while they were good, I got turned off from the price. Plus the bose did not have a bluray player. Instead I purchased a Bose Acoustimass 10 speaker system and decided to build my home system from scratch.
