  • Summary: I think it should have been stated up front that there were missing items, still price was fair.
  • Pros: Once set up and learned what sounds best , its a very good unit.
  • Cons: No instructions (down loaded from internet) , no mic so I can't do calibration on the speakers, no AM antenna in box.

A lot of bang for your buck.

  • Summary: Great Home Theater system. Sound is crisp and clear, only using 5.1 setup until I can get two more speakers. You definitely want to download and print a copy of the manual as this remote is not self explanatory.

Great Deal on Basic Surround Receiver

jeffrey d., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I rolled the dice and bought 2 of these when Newegg had them on sale for $139. They looked new to me and have worked flawlessly, which is good as the short 30-day warranty ran out yesterday. Would be nice if Newegg offered an extended warranty.
  • Pros: Refurbished units like new and well packaged. Great price at $139. Fast shipping. Easy to manually set up and configure. Good basic surround features. Good power.
  • Cons: Only covered by 30 day warranty with no options for extended warranty and I removed 1 egg for that. In my humble opinion no product should be sold with only a 30-day warranty without an option to buy more protection. Basic feature set with no on-screen display or automatic set-up although manual ...
