Excellent in every way

Erin D., Newegg
23 May 2012
  • Summary: Replaced a Sony STR-DG810 and I can't believe I used that receiver as long as I did. I don't know if I'll have to buy a new one in the next decade. It does everything I wanted and more.
  • Pros: Worth every penny, especially when you can get it for under a G on a special. I'm still not using it to it's full potential, but a family will slow down that sort of progress...
  • Cons: Made be buy new speakers?

Excellent receiver for 6 weeks

Gary W., Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I loved this purchase right up until yesterday afternoon. I may grow to like it again when I get it back in working order, but for now I've got a gaping hole at the center of my home theater for weeks or months.
  • Pros: Worked brilliantly when I installed it. Options/inputs galore, very clean sound and picture. Looks very nice.
  • Cons: Updating the firmware over the internet is a bit needlessly complicated, but the big con is that it lasted me 6 weeks of use before refusing to turn on, so now I have to ship it halfway across the country for who knows how long and reconfigure my entire system in the meantime. You pay this much f...

fancy receiver

Mike B., Newegg
13 March 2012
  • Summary: I'd buy this again in a heatbeat. No regrets even though it was expensive. Use it every day and love listening and watching through it.
  • Pros: Purchased in November and while expensive this is a great receiver. processes ANY type of video input - using it with my Wii, PS2, PS3, Xbox360 video scaling - hdmi/1080p easy to upgrade android remote control app on-screen display is very helpful internet radio stations are great FM and HD recei...
  • Cons: UI can be a bit challenging to learn - lots of features to map to various buttons. took me a while to figure out i had to move 1 hdmi connector to a different port due to needing to map something else to one of the first ports.

STUD

Justin D., Newegg
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Had this cranked LOUD for 4 hours during a college house party playing music videos. No problems. Everyone thought they were seriously at the club! I would highly recommend this AV Receiver for a long-term solution to any mid to high end Home Theater system for both music and movies.
  • Pros: Has enough power to crank all 7 of me floor standing speakers. Everything about it exudes quality. Solid build and parts. Even the remote weighs a ton! Pandora radio is sweet (after easy firmware update) and easy to add and remove stations. Music sounds unbelievable. The precision and ridiculous ...
  • Cons: No iTunes Air Play. Since Pandora is added via update there is no direct button on the remote so you must scroll the the menu every time to select it. Remote is great for setup but I wouldn't recommend as a universal for your whole setup. Use a Harmony One.

What a Bargain

Bryan N., Newegg
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Just got it a week ago and the sound is great. I moved up from a Onkyo 6.1 1000 watt and this blows it away. I haven't gotten to use many of the features but I'm looking forward to it. I am very satisfied. It sounded great with my old speakers but I upgraded anyway and now I'm set for life.
  • Pros: Great sound, lots of power,many inputs, two out, so many features, good price and good looks, easy to update firmware.
  • Cons: If I find any Ill update my review

Amazing Upgrade

michael t., Newegg
1 January 2012
  • Summary: If you're not a self professed tech geek, it could be very difficult to properly setup. I'd like to say not having a printed manual is an issue, but truth be told, the included PDF is nicely formatted. The linked indexes and chapters make finding information easy enough.
  • Pros: Plenty of HDMI ports and inputs, networking, it can be controlled by an iPad or iPhone. This receiver can also send audio / video to another room / zone.
  • Cons: You really do need an iPad or Android device to get the full enjoyment of this receiver, especially if you are using multiple zones.

Complex but...WOW!!!

Curtis W., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Pros: Best receiver I have EVER owned! My sound spectrum widened 3 fold! My Klipsch Synergy speakers never sounded better! Sound is pure and crystal clear! Cranked it up and haven't noticed ANY distortion! 2 HDMI outputs! Inputs out the wazoo! HDradio is very cool. Picture quality on my Panny even impr...
  • Cons: Setup is easy, but you will have to dig around to find specific settings to tweak. AVSForum helped a lot! It will take you a long time to really get to KNOW this receiver, but initial setup is pretty straight forward. Fine tuning the settings takes a little research if you don't find what you nee...
