Good product, if you can live with less than the latest technology

  • Summary: Being an older design, this receiver has some limitations: no HDMI inputs and it doesn't process Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD, so playback of Blu-Ray disks falls back to the earlier surround technology (Dolby Prologic II).

  • Summary: For me this receiver is very easy to use has no HDMI so beware. The remote wore out wouldn't work anymore had to replace so I would recommend buying an extra one immediately since they could become scarce. I found a replacement remote for around $30.

  • Summary: i got this receiver about 4 months ago, and let me tell you, not once have i been disapointed. i know a lot about speakers and i know what sounds good, the remote is not bad (like what the privious person said) after about 2 days of use the remote was very easy to understand.

Good Sound, Terrible Remote

  • Summary: This is an first impressions review: The receiver has good connectivity with enough component video, optical in, co-axial in and analog inputs. I am pretty proficient with audio/video equipment (quite a gadget geek), but setup took a while and was anything but intuitive.

Very happy with this receiver

  • Summary: I recently bought the receiver, athena micra speakers, and the xm antenna. I decided to treat myself and get rid of an old mini-system and a roady 2. I am very happy with how xm is integrated with the system.
