Summary: trust me this lil bad boy is my back up cuz i buy/sell/trade up constanly.i picked mine up for 10$ at thrift store in seattle.i own macintosh/carver/phase linear/tube gear new & old/hk/jbl/speakerlab/paridigm/garbage bose "except 901" blah blah blah, . . . this hoe hum lil buddy of mine is still rock solid.even more than the sony ES gear i have.its super adaptive n still brings smiles to my face.and btw if u read the review talkin head on this unit with some guy sayin...
Summary: I loved this unit at first, then after about a month, most of the buttons on the front panel stopped working. The receiver always wanted to cycle through all the listening modes. I ended up pushing one of the listening mode buttons on the front panel in and jammed a small piece of paper in there to get it to stay at one mode. I was able to use the remote to access all the receiver's functions until it also died. Now the left back surround works intermittently.
Summary: I bought this receiver about 10 years ago and have been very happy with it. For the most part of its life it has been used just as a 2 channel reciever. It has plenty of power, I hooked up a pair of JBL cf-120 speakers and also another set of boston acoustics hs 450. I have since used these four plus a definitive center speaker to create my suround sound. At first this receiver was a bit complicated but now I like the way I can fine tune my speakers.
Summary: I have owned several and was very pleased with the production, for the price.They have good volume range as well as clarity for their class.I particularly enjoyed the capability to switch between the A or B channels as well as to be able to play them simultaneously.
Summary: First off I loved the price I paid for it.. as It did take me about 2 weeks bidding & looking at the ones i wanted to bid on & would be happy with.. SECOND.. I Saved like 75% off retail or should we say the price of what a junk one would cost in the retail world. I bought a top name brand with beautiful sound,functions,quality, and dont forget looks & plenty of power.. BOTTOM LINE I BUY MOST MY THINGS OFF EBAY NOW AS WE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS OVER 10 YEARS ON EBAY.
Summary: I miss the volume level numbers when adjusting volume. Also its hard to get the volume just right. The volume is too loud and a touch of the button and the volume is too quiet. It doesn't seem right, and the manual doesn't help with these problems.
