Summary: Great AMP. Pros: Quick setup and Great sound quality. Many adjustments for speaker and room size. Mic for quick room setup but can be tweaked as needed. Cons: No switched power outlet for sub-woofer and no HDMI pass thru. The old (10+ Yrs) SONY AMP I was replacing even had a switched power outlet, but you have to turn sub on manually every time you want to use it. Also, if you use the HDMI Ports for all your video sources, the AMP has to be ON.
Summary: As for value for the buck I cannot complain. I got exactly what I wanted; a simple, powerful, great sounding and cheap AV receiver. To date I am pleased with my purchase. It arrived punctually and in good condition. Give me a couple more months to use the Yamaha and I'll be able to speak to the reliability of this receiver.
Summary: This unit meets all of my expectations EXCEPT, it doesn't have and A-B selection for a separate set of speakers (in my case they are on my patio. My previous A/V receiver had this and I assumed that they all did. Apparently not so. But otherwise seems to be a good receiver.
Summary: This is my preliminary review since I just installed this new receiver and I have printed the manual (it comes on CD) but have not read it yet. The enclosed setup instructions are basically "attach some speakers and turn it on". This DOES seem to work as it auto detects the HDMI inputs and then you plug in the enclosed mic and it does an auto speaker detect.
Summary: A no-nonsense solid little unit that delivers exactly as advertized. A minor quibble with an HDMI TV sound playback which required an additional cable, but nothing else. Sound quality is very good.
Good value, DD+ decoding for Netflix 5.1, Very Low Wattage

Summary: Pros: [+]Good value - Received brand new main unit with scratch protection film still on it [+]has CEC control to turn off AVR with TV power / remote. [+]has ARC audio return channel to send digital audio back to the receiver from the TV [+]has two optical inputs. While HDMI is good, I still use these and one is not enough [+]has 250ms lipsync (The 377 has 500ms upgrade to that feature but it only has 1 optical input) [+]supports Dolby Digital Plus decoding which is...
Summary: This is used with old speakers from a sony all-in-one system and the Yamaha sub-woofer I purchased with this unit. Sound is very good, but it sometimes takes two tries to switch mode. Options missing that I would like include inputs for a TV antenna and PC. It would also be nice to hook up android and windows phones and not just apple.
Summary: Delivers clean sound, and has a lot of nice tuning features. I have this setup as a passthrough for all of my hdmi devices. My only issue is that sound is out of sync (late) on bluray videos. There is a syncing delay setting that can correct some instances of this, but unfortunately can only adjust a higher delay to sound, which is the opposite of what is needed to correct my issue.
Summary: Great Product, was hoping for a good product to match with my surround system that I wanted to update to digital. everythink workedout just like advertised with no trouble and I have a wonderful system that now does everything I wanted
