Summary: I paid such a crazy low price for a new receiver, it was worth taking the risk. I'm a novice so I figured I would use this as a learner. I was first scared when setting up and it kept cutting off until I carefully wired my speakers.
Summary: This receiver is a pain to install if you follow the provided manual, I found it too confusing, threw it away and used my experience and common sense--VIOLA!! it works great. Outstanding sound,self equalization with mike makes all the difference in the world.
Summary: First, the only feature about this receiver that earned a star was the appearance of the unit and the fact that it actually had metal dials instead of plastic. But, that's where my appreciation ends. For the novice who is used to plug and play, this thing is a nightmare.
Summary: I bought this 2 months ago thinking I was getting a Very Good deal (looking at the price reduction). The item shipped fast and seemed pristine. I have a RXV-1000(yamaha) that I am looking to replace and thought this would fit the bill. It did not. Clicking clicking clicking.
