Summary: This product was affordable and is easy to operate. I use it in a remodeled bar area in my basement. I have 2 in-ceilings, a center channel and a sub hooked up to it and it does the job just fine. If your not looking for a who bunch of bells and whistles, this unit is the way to go. I use mostly for music listening and watching Football games, when in season. I would recommend this product.
Summary: This unit puts out very good sound, especially in a smaller room. I still need a subwoofer for it to really grab its full potential. It took a little while to master all the different adjustments, but I have it down now. I also love that it still has lots of analog connectors (RCA) on the back so that I can connect all the old equipment I'm still running. Looks good, too.
Summary: I have owned this receiver for about 2 years now and I still love it. It's a pretty fantastic mid-range receiver. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles as some of the higher end receivers, but it's easy to use and provides plenty of power for my home audio system. PROS: Supports ARC (audio return channel): This is one of my favorite features. It allows you to use a single (hdmi) cable to send audio to and receive audio from your device.
Summary: Decent entry level 5.1 receiver. Looks complicated but easy to set up. Powering Polk RT15s front & rear, Polk CS245 center, & dual Yamaha YST-SW215 subs in a 16x12 room. Pros: 1. Easy set-up with the YPAO system, although you may have to tweak the settings. 2. Difference sound stages & effects to complement source recording & room. 3. Decent volume level assuming efficient speakers. You're not going to drive difficult loads however. 4.
Summary: This is the most amazing receiver I have ever owned. When I first turned it on to do the set up it actually gave a report about the wiring and whether they were in the correct phase! It is very easy to operate and is VERY adaptable... I totally recommend this unit!!
Summary: I have had this for about 5 weeks and the sound is poor. I am usually not one of those people who leave feedback, but for this I must warn you. For $300, I'm sure there are better products on the market. I have Energy speakers with a Paradigm sub and I have to crank it up 80% when I watch a movie or listen to music in order to "feel" the music, pathetic. I had a 10 year old Sony that made the speakers come alive.
Summary: It came quickly and works great. I recommend this product and this company. The sound is nice and powerful. I tested it out playing Battlefield 3 and it felt like I was on the actual battlefield.
