Good but not Great!

  • Summary: If you are looking for a reciever that cn handle your expensive audio/visual equipment and give you good quality without a huge price tag this is it. It's age makes it a good choice for someone that wants good sound at a decent price. It doesn't have HDMI hookups just the standard composites. That however is it's only major flaw. This reciever gives good quality sound at a low price. Quality and affordability what more can you ask for?

  • Summary: To all the review writers that ether had problems or couldn't understand the manual, I've had my receiver 4 years now and it just fine, I wanted a nice rig but easy on the wallet, at the time i got this from Best Buy for $125 and since then I've gotten nothing but enjoyment out of it, added a pioneer 15 band graphic EQ and a fisher (old school) stereo reverb unit,bose cube speakers and can create any type of sound i choose, The HTR-5830 is connected to my dishnetwork...

Impossible to use

  • Summary: The sound is great, the features fantastic, and you'll never be able to appreciate them, because the controls are impossible, and the manual worthless. Quick! Change the volume level of the center speaker. Just try. You'll have to push a button on the remote, after you push a button on the remote that isn't documented, then you'll be able to get to the control.

Agreed, a great receiver for the money

  • Summary: I am writing this as a review of the *receiver*, NOT the amazon listing, it obviously is misrepresented here as it is NOT XM-ready, but that's no reason to bash the product itself. I got this receiver to replace my old Pro-Logic that has served me well but is way past its prime. I really like the Yamaha RX-V657, but as I'm not ready to spend $500 right now, I decided to "settle" on this as a stopgap receiver.

  • Summary: sounded good for the money. but then it broke 6 months later. if you buy it make sure you get a replacement warranty. I am going to buy a better one next time. you get what you pay for.
