Summary: Functionally, this is a nice receiver. Speaker step was easy and trouble free and all of the functions worked well and as expected (HDMI pass-through, upscaling, surround sound auto modes, etc.).
Summary: I had some issues with this when I recently tried using more than 2 speakers. I have the fuzz and and static problem others seem to be posting about. I really like all the features, but the static is unbearable.
Summary: Wonderful unit. Sound is clear, crisp, and the auto-setting with the included microphone does a better job than I can do with supposedly higher end sound level devices. I've really enjoyed my home theater with it and it easily outperformed the Onkyo receiver it replaced (when it worked properly).
Summary: Details: - This is the first advanced AVR I have bought - 7 speakers (4 wireless) - Connected to Xbox360 (online gaming), HD DVR Cable Box, and 42" LG LCD TV Pros: - setting up the speakers and connecting devices was simple and straightforward, but you will need to read the manually carefully to use...
Summary: If your goal is to use this as a cheap HDMI receiver, forget it. The HDMI would take several minutes to connect with our Verizon FIOS box. After it did connect, it would be hit or miss if the sound was connected. Then if you got sound, there is a good chance the audio would be out of sync.
Summary: I bought this unit at the recommendation of a friend who said it was a great deal and had a great upscaling chip. I have had a few problems with it so far. First the HDMI does not seem to be completely compatible with my Samsung PN51D6500 Plasma.
Summary: First,I understand the reviewer that received the wrong merchandise being dissatisfied. I wouldn't be happy either. However, using the PRODUCT REVIEW to express this concern has a negative impact on the actual product review.
Summary: I bought this receiver for the upconverting VRS chip from Anchor Bay. This is replacing an 11 year-old Harmon Kardon AVR-75, which only decodes Dolby Digital so I decided it was time to upgrade. This receiver has several different audio decoders/codecs(?
