Summary: I don't have a problem buying refurbished. I use this unit daily and its flawless. I have it connected to Bose 301 in front Polk sub, surround speakers and center channel. This receiver rocks, great clean sound and the price is incredible.

Summary: This is my first experience with refurbished equipment and it was an excellent one. I wanted to upgrade my JVC home theatre receiver to a better one without breaking the bank and I found this offer from Amazon.

Summary: I bought the refurb model and it is so loud and clear, love the speaker leveling set up, on screen display work with anything you have! The built in DAC is awesome.... No more crackle when gaming just clear loud ( and I mean loud ) explosions and gunfire. I had it on -5 and my roomates about 50ft and a room away where yelling at each other to talk... funny. Easy to set up, and so many features... this tells you if you have a speake wired backwards and which on it is.
