Summary: I have been using one of these for 8-9 years, now. It has performed perfectly whithin my entertainment center during that time. It has plenty of inputs, both video and s-video as well as audio stereo to handle all my other electronics including my karaoke player.
Summary: This was one of my best Ebay Purchases. I was half expecting something to be wrong with it because I got it for only $50 but it works great so far and has been ideal for my home theater surround sound setup.
Summary: The receiver that I purchased through ebay turned out better than I expected. The quality and multpile functions that can be performed on the receiver are better than expected. The reiver works well with the surround system I have and has yat to give me any problems.
Summary: OK I just want to tell people how to fix the overload problem what it is and i have the same problem on my old vsx d508 and its been a while since it has done this to me but the overload is a static build up in the amp to get rid of it unplug the reciever and ground it.
Summary: ... Bottom line up front: way to much GREAT sound for the money. Rated at 100 watts per channel, but that's sustained! Peak is around 153 per channel. Digital filters are incredible. Dobly Surround modes sound like Dolby Digital on good stereo sources. Its awesome!
Summary: I was astounded by how well this performs compared to similar systems for double the money. I got it for the digital (optic) inputs, which are great for dvd and newer cd players and the s video switching abilities. Also, the remote control is very good.
