Worked OK until failing TWICE

RYAN C., Newegg
29 July 2015
  • Summary: I ordered this unit on 7/1/2012 and it work well for a little while. In the summer of 2014, two years later, it stopped working. When you would turn it on it would stay on for a second and then immediately turn back off.
  • Pros: Worked OK for a while.
  • Cons: Failed TWICE.

Buy another reciever.

mike b., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: While it does suppose AV features and HDMI switching, the interface is CLUNKY. The input switching is hit or miss, and sometimes does not even send signals to the tv. Today it seems the HDMI ports have just completely died. I tried everything.
  • Pros: Looks pretty, and has AV capabilities.
  • Cons: Everything

Worked For Only 14 Months

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: It worked good, even though sometimes I had to turn the receiver off and then back on again just to get it to pass a hdmi signal thru to the TV set, it was annoying at times but I lived with it. Then 14 months after purchasing it just it would not turn on. just two months out of warranty.

Great Receiver

Leah, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: I had a Pioneer last time, too, and it worked perfectly - in fact, much better than the surge-protection power cord, apparently, because the cord didn't work. So I found this model and have been using it now for several months.

Great performance but terrible connection and delay

Armando M., Newegg
4 September 2014
  • Summary: I gave it a 3 star rating because when it works right it looks good. However I have a unique setup and now I am trying to sell this 1 because it simply doesn't fit my needs. The wife and I are in agreement that we need a 4K receiver just in case.. :)
  • Pros: Great audio, and video quality Lots of different ways to configure your home video.
  • Cons: Huge Lag ! Loses signal all the time. When you turn it on it can take up to 30 seconds to get it working right. Once I have my Verizon box on and change it to an HDMI channel it losses the signal.

I just received this receiver I find it funny that people had trouble installing this system

  • Summary: I just received this receiver I find it funny that people had trouble installing this system. First of all the setup will show up on your tv through HDMI you just have to be willing to follow directions.

nice receiver

Christopher Holden, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: this sounds great and has enough hdmi's if you have too many inputs. One design flaw: you can't rename inputs. I did have a problem where the hdmi's stopped working, but the issue has been noted online and there is a simple fix to reset the settings. The OSD is not pretty.

It is good but no WIFI. It does have Ethernet

S. Walker "Lucas Arts please hear our cry", Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Good receiver but it has issues were I don't hear any sound once in a while. It is good but no WIFI. It does have Ethernet so you will need to buy a wired to wireless adapter which only cost $20

Almost lightning proof and it sounds and looked great on my 60"

Andrew Simons, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: I loved it. Now I just like it. It did everything I wanted until it got hit by lightning. Now it only does one thing I wanted and that's play sound. Somehow every HDMI port got fried so I can't run video through it but when it wasn't struck down from above it worked great and it still sounds great.

I like it for more reasons than I have the time ...

John M, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I like it for more reasons than I have the time to go into. Does everything I wanted, sounds really good to great; have it connected to NHT speakers in a 5.1 configuration. Bought to replace a SONY that one day just quit - TV is a HD Panasonic 55" Plasma, have a ROKU, use the Pandora feature in the...
