Summary: My subwoofer out port stopped functioning after about a year, luckily you can use the 2nd room function ports as a substitute. Currently, there are two main modes: Stereo and DTS (7.1). Stereo mode only marks the front left and front right speakers as active, while the other obviously enables all.
Pros: HDMI inputs, 7.1 surround
Cons: 1. Extremely low S/N (signal to noise) ratio. Meaning, there is a ton of background noise you only become aware of if you use any external amp. I had to buy a noise gate because it was so obnoxious. 2. Only audio outputs are those spring clamps for bare wire. Not a problem if you just have small ...
Summary: If you remember the limitations up front, this unit definitely has the features to go with the value. I was looking for a HDR reciever to replace an ancient Radio Shack Optimus that I had bought on clearance sale 25 years ago that drove an old pair of hideous, washer machine sized loudspeakers I...
Summary: Be careful not to make the mistake I made in that Amazon lists two versions of this model, both claim HD Radio on their titles, but only one (7405HDR) actually receives HD radio (look for the HDR suffix).
Summary: If you are looking for a decently priced home HD radio reciever, this is the one for you. However, be careful not to make the mistake I made in that Amazon lists two versions of this model, both claim HD Radio on their titles, but only this one (7405HDR) actually receives HD radio (look for the HDR...
Summary: I give this a 1 because the description and picture is wrong. There is NO HD radio on this model. Instead, get model RD-7405 HDR. The HDR stands for hybrid digital (HD)radio. (HD meand hybrid digital not high definition).
Summary: I purchased this home theater receiver with high hopes of powering a 5.1 channel speaker system. Unfortunately, there are not enough optical digital inputs for me to use it in my living room because my Sony TV and PS3 use only optical digital outputs.
Summary: I like this receiver quite a bit. It was easy to set up, but the real reason I purchased it was for the HD Radio. Unfortunately this is limited in my area, but when the signal is strong enough, it is very cool getting 'extra' radio stations (I've not had any luck picking up HD AM stations yet).
Summary: this is simply the best deal for a home hdradio receiver. i don't care about it's video or surround capabilities. i just put it into stereo mode and turned off the tone controls. very smooth clean amp like you would expect from most modern stereos. the hdradio section is what makes this outstanding.
