  • Summary: I read most of the reviews and its not that hard to hook up but what is really wrong with this I paid for two day delivery got it in 6 but I got it and I was like a 5 year old could not wait, I had memories of my old pioneer (I still have) I bought when I was in the military, it was hard to find speakers for kept blowing them out. Man but this thing is a disappointment no power, my subwoofer could hardly handle the old system this thing never made it.

Trust me

  • Summary: Trust me when I say this: You are not getting the amount of features you think you're getting with this unit. For starters? No equalizer. The 10 year old Sony that I had (same price range) had an equalizer that let you adjust the response frequency and levels of the bass mid and treble. What this unit has is bass and treble adjustments, but beyond that no other manual ability. The MDACC thing attempts to adjust an equalizer FOR you, but it just distorted my audio.

"It just should not be this difficult"

Joe B "Joe", Amazon

  • Summary: As I was setting this up I kept saying over and over "IT JUST SHOULD NOT BE THIS DIFFICULT!!" I bought this to replace a 'first generation' 5.1 surround sound system I got many years ago. About me, I'm not an idiot when it comes to A/V gear and I can set most anything up. However, this was a challenge to get running. It is not a 'plug and play' piece of equipment. You can't simply read the input / output labels and intuitively set it up.

Не советую. Слушайте перед покупкой

  • Summary: Разочарован звуком этого ресивера. по сравнению со старым ресивером 5 серии ямахой. он вообще не играет с колонками mission m35i. звук сухой не глубокий. пропала глубина и детализация. купил его из-за того что в нем есть hdmi, 3d, вход под iphone, и компактные размеры. советую перед покупкой про слушать его.
  • Pros: Много на воротов современных Размеры
  • Cons: Звук сухой, пропала глубина, детализация.
