  • Summary: For the dollar...a great buy. The small weakness are much out weighed by the strenths. If you can find this receiver for under $350 consider it a great buy. If they're asking more...Look elswhere, but be sure to check the reviews!

  • Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to a five year old Technics unit that died. The first thing I noticed after hooking it up was that the bass was almost non existant compared to my old Technics, I eventually bought a 12" JBL sub and that cured the problem.

  • Summary: My first real impression was - where are my banana plugs? No s-video on the front? Yes, yes, but looking in a store/online and hooking it up at home are different. This receiver is a very good consumer unit. It has a good gui and lots of inputs and outpus.

  • Summary: Just recently bought the Sony 945, returned the first unit due to the surround sound not working (no sound from the rear). I am currently returning the second unit as the Video 1 and Video 2 jacks are swapped.

  • Summary: what a piece. first of all this thing hisses like a cobra in heat. anyone who doesn't hear this needs to tell me where they get their drugs. it's awful!! i guess it has all the new features on the market (dts, optical input, etc) but for that price, it's not worth it compared to what you can get for...

  • Summary: Several reviewers are puzzled about where to stick input from digital audio via cable. I'm delaying my purchase until I find out the answer. However, a knowledgeable salesperson told me that the COAX input labelled DVD/LD is a generic input for any non-optical digital audio source.
