exellent

Mr. A. Smith, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: I have just bought on of these second hand for £70. It is a very good av receiver. It has enough connections you need. It is nice & slim. I am using it with a set of Onkyo 638 speakers. It sounds as good as my friends system wich he paid £900 for. If you can get one of these cheap like I did you will not regret it.

Slim and cool running

Purchaser, Suffolk UK, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: Already have a smaller Pioneer digital home cinemna receiver, which is usefully compact and cool running, so bought this one to replace a larger conventional receiver, Compared with a typical full-size receiver, it has more limited set-up options, so takes a bit more head-scratching to get everything working. But it exactly fulfils the purpose in feeing up some space in my built-in system, and the cool running should be helpful for the reliability of this and nearby kit.

Dated outputs and no audio assign possible

EddieA, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: On this unit you can't do some basic things, such as assign a digital audio input to a specific HDMI video output if say you have a an old Sky box that doesn't carry sound through HDMI, so it's HDMI audio or nothing. If you want to watch TV video (say sports results appearing on TV) and listening to a CD, then forget it, as you can't as the remote switches one or the other unlike my old Marantz receiver.

Fantastic Amp

Ashley, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought this Amp because of the options it allows, you can add extra rear speakers making it a 7.1 system or front full hieght speakers. The Manual and other people mention about the menu and that you need to connect it to a composite connection. You actually dont need to do this has the menu is displayed on the front of the Amp when you go in to the options.

Good features in a small package

Ian the geek, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a broken Marantz slimline product. The sound quality from this is much cleaner than with the Marantz and less "warm" i.e. it is more neutral. As others have indicated, getting the OSD to work was a challenge. However, setup was easy using the included microphone and a few minor adjustments. Each source remembers its own sound settings. The product looks good and provides a similar range of features and sound quality to its bigger rivals.

One of few AV amps offering all the features I was looking for

Michael Kennelly, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: I chose this AV amp to replace my old, failed, Canon surround sound setup because: 1. Multiple (4x) HDMI inputs, to hook up Virgin V+ STB, Xbox and Blu-ray player, with one input to spare; 2. Input for L+R audio in from older analog devices; 3. Non-proprietary spkr connections, suitable for hooking up the spkrs left over from my old surround sound kit; 4. Support for an additional pair of rear surround spkrs; 5. Support for either passive or active sub-woofer; 6.

Great slimline AV Receiver

D. Hart "noitreallyisme", Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: Bought this from Peter Tyson Online, via Amazon marketplace, and the vendor also included a free QED HDMI lead, which was nice touch. Connecting the unit was straight forward, but I had a bit of difficulty getting the on-screen set display to come up and the quick set-up guide is rather vague on that score. By trial and error I got it to display eventually.
