Summary: I am an audio professional, but not overly obsessed w/ my home audio. This is a very good system for the price. One must adjust the settings in setup. Leaving the settings all at the default will result in flat low audio for music. Once you adjust the levels to each speaker & set the distance of each, your music will sound very good & your movies even better.

Summary: This receiver i bought last year, so far I have had no problems and I enjoy all the features that it has. I actually have some old AIWA Speakers hooked up to this system, and a Sony Subwoofer which realy gives this system some power, I have tested it with all the great movies ( Lord of the rings, Star Wars, Matrix etc ) and it kicks butt!! My digital cable box which receives Dolby Digital signal also sounds great.
