Discounts Jungle.com lies and Amazon needs to do something about it!

Summary: This company lies. The Yamaha receiver was advertised as new on Amazon. I received it a couple of hours ago and opened the packet with the manual to read it. The manual had handwritten notes all over it and obviously had been used by another individual who made connection notes in the manual. Sam, of Discounts Jungle said someone in his warehouse had made the notations while packing the unit for shipping.
Summary: nice unit at an excellent price. Every thing worked out of the box. Easy setup and a nice looking unit to boot. Granted, if you want to spend a lot more for a receiver you can, but why bother?
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Updated Review: Fixed problem and am giving the product three stars. It's pretty good for three hundred bucks. I've had a few problems with the internal settings randomly changing by themselves but have learned to live with it. If I had to do it over again...I would have spent the extra few bucks on a Denon.
Summary: I recently had a Yamaha receiver, but was an old one with no HDMI hook ups nor did it have True HD and DTS HD. After purchasing this receiver without spending a fortune for a new one, this choice could not have been better. i actually expected less, but this receiver is awesome. I am a movie guy and watch movies regularly and the sound is just terrific. I would recommend this product to everyone.
Summary: I've owned this receiver for about 2 months now and couldn't be happier with it. The features are great for the price!! Definitely get the most bang for your buck. 1 HDMI out cable for all (analog and digital inputs) makes for a nice, clean look to any home theater with the analog video upscaling. Major selling point for me. Excellent sound quality. My only complaints are that there are banana plug connections for ONLY the front speakers.
Summary: There were two things that convinced me get this model (besides it is Yamaha): HDMI upscaling and self-calibration. The calibration feature works awesome. The unit actually told me that the polarity of one of the rear speakers was incorrect. If you are unsatisfied, there are plenty adjustments that can be done manually too. Sound quality is absolutely fine and I never had any "insufficient power" issues in my 14'x30'+x10' living room.
