Summary: Good receiver with good sound. Annoying habit of not picking up signal from my Dish 922 box if the Dish box is turned on before the TV. This happened with more than one TV. Also seems to want to default to AV4 after turning on other HDMI streams, but is a minor annoyance.
Summary: Had the product approximately a month and still somewhat evaluating it. It showed some minor signs of ware which is expected since it is refurbished. I wish it had more audio video (AV) inputs but I know what I was getting into when I brought it so that's really not a knock. All things considering if your like myself with some older technology but want to be able to grow / support current technology then this is a good receiver for that goal, at least in my opinion.
Summary: Everything looked perfect with this receiver and powered up fine but it had a C stock sticker on it which means no warranty. Amazon was happy to exchange it for a different model and covered the return shipping
Summary: I have had RV-473 for about a month now and I'm still learning about its capabilities.First, I am delighted with this AV receiver. Having migrated from a 2nd generation stereo rec/am to the 473 gave me a case of culture shock. The first thing I did after following the quick setup procedures, I became familiar with the equipment manual.
Summary: This was purchased to replace an Audiovox home theater unit. That unit was buggy, and difficult to operate. This was very easy to setup and operate. It has many music presets and connections. The network setup was fast and easy. All in all a no-brainer at the price point.
Summary: This receiver is a winner! The features are simple and the sound quality is exceptional. I have this receiver mated with the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater Speaker System and I couldn't be more pleased with the overall package. For under $800 total for the receiver, speakers, wire, speaker stands - I have a great system on a reasonable budget.
Summary: Accompanying iPhone app is the star of the show. It can wake the receiver and do pretty much everything from the phone: input, DSP, scene, all the audio options, a digital d-pad and remote, and more. Picture this...you come home from a good date with a girl on your arm, and she steps into the bathroom. You take off your coat and pull out your...phone. "Siri, Open 'AV Controller'". At the same time you pull a bottle of white wine out of the chiller.
