Summary: Avoid this product. I have seen problems with audio with my blu-ray player and my Apple TV. I thought it was just a bad receiver so I exchanged it and the new one has the same problems with the same movies. Center Channel can not be adjusted adequately for the movies that do play. I use Apple TV, Chromecast, Blu-Ray. DVD movies seem ok but Blu-Ray discs have issues, I get the surround sound but not voice track.
Summary: Pyle is not known for high end audio and this is no HK, Yamaha. But in today's fast changing technology, a receiver that i bought 5 years ago and paid $750 for is almost obsolete so it makes more sense to me to spend a couple hundred on something up to date every 3-4 years.
Pros: Price point good. Lots of features, inputs, HDMI ins, easy to use.
Cons: Cheesy remote. I prefer the "clip" style speaker outs as opposed to the screw type. No equalizer and very few audio settings.
Summary: sounds like a bad ballast in a halogen light.....tried different speakers but still the same buzz .... reread manual called a friend and still after 10 minutes of playing the buzzing comes bach to haunt me
Summary: I really like this receiver. When I received it I hooked it up and it sounded great. The only problem I have is that after about an hour of having it on, it started to hum real loud. I am not sure what caused this but, I like the unit so well, I decided to keep it and have it fixed at a shop. The company offered to let me return it for a full refund but, I like it to well to send it back. I will get it fixed myself.

Summary: I bought this receiver to enhance the stereo sound of my Xbox One as it's HTMI compatible. Before I bought it I noticed that there was a lot of complaints about this receiver on your Amazon site but felt they were rating were a little harsh as if they paid $1000.00 for it and not just over a $100.00. Is it perfect, no, yes the fan a little noisy but I can only hear it when everything is turned off and the room is totally silent.
Summary: Hooked system up, worked great for 2 days. then humming started. unhooked surround speakers and humming stopped for a day. unhooked center speaker and humming stopped. Running system on 2 speakers, seems to work for now. Thought I was buying surround system and got stereo!
