Summary: This thing runs extremely HOT. It is hard to listen to it for a long time as it hurts your ears with the unnatural sound. Also the balance does not completely turn off the opposite channel when put all the way to the left or right. Remote is slow.
Summary: Originally got the 545 before reading the reviews. Generally liked it though after considering Sears figured I could get a lot more bang for the buck. Looked at getting the 845. After considering the programable nature of the 945's remote I figured I would drop another $50-100 on a good remote anyways so might as well get the other benefits of the 945 over the 845 for the same extra $$$.
