It is outstanding, very clear with a great punch. I use it mostly to watch blu-ray movies, many of them in 3D.

  • Pros: It works well with my Samsung smart tv, play station and cable box.Connecting everything was easy because of the one hdmi for the tv and everything else went to the receiver
  • Cons: I didn't understand how the pandora work when you have a smart tv and both are wireless.I would like a better manual for clear instructions for connecting to the hub but I can say customer service walk me through everything with no problem

Excellent Receiver

Pete, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Dollar for dollar you'd be hard pressed to find another receiver with this many features and sound this good for the same price. Set up was easy, despite no owners manual in the box. The sound is so much better than the Yamaha I upgraded from at around the same price.
  • Pros: Sound quality, features, number and type of available connections.
  • Cons: No 120 volt switched outlet on the back. No owners manual.
