No Soul

Scooteral "Redaer", Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because the price was right. I owned it 5 years and never figured out how this remote is supposed to work nor could I use the goofy adjustments. Had a sub-woofer hooked up and it never made a sound. It is about as good as an Emerson stereo or one of those old Electrophonics. The sound is *meh*. This unit imbues the music with no soul, no balls or even ovaries. It is just loud and flat.

Warning for average buyers

Bill Hemple, Amazon

  • Summary: The setup unstructions for this amplifier are so unclear they are indecipherable. I am not an audiophile, but over many years I have hooked together preamps, turntables. tape decks, DVDs, TVS, with an amplifier, speakers and subwoofers. I have managed fine getting my computers up and running. But this bear of an amplifier has me frustrated and angry. The manual is absolutely the worst set of instructions I have ever read for anything.
