Summary: This is an excellent choice for the mid-range price. I have it hooked up with 2ea NS777 Yamaha floor speakers, 1ea Infinity center, 2ea Boston VR dipole rears and 2ea YST SW 315 subs. Using in a 5.2 surround with Dolby PL 2X decoder, movies sound awesome. Using in standard 7.2 mode for music..
Summary: I bought this receiver for about $400, and couldn't be more pleased. I did much research and am convinced that there isn't better receiver in this price range. First of all - read the manual AND look at some of the tips available on this forum from other owners.
Summary: I have had this for a couple of days now and haven't fully explored all the possibilities yet. It does power my relatively inefficient speakers (85db) with no problems and I have noticed no excessive heat generation or operating problems yet.
Great Receiver... but Nintendo Wii owners take note

Summary: This is a great receiver for the price...has many features only some high end models have. The sound is great, very easy to setup, and very clean design. Nintendo Wii owners take note However, one thing that was not taken into consideration is the placement of the inputs on the back.
great receiver, setup is very easy, great picture quality and great sound

Summary: I have owned this model for about 2 weeks now and it is one of the best buys on the market right now. The other receiver that comes close to this is the Onkyo 606, which has an excellent set of features for the same price as this receiver.
Summary: Bueno creo que se puede explicar en pocas palabras para no liar a la gente. Es un reproductor av que ademas de tratar sonido trata imagen. El precio a dia de hoy es muy bueno ya que esta descatalogado y para muchas d las funciones que trae y componentes esta mas que sobrado.
Summary: Also alles in allem ist das Gerät wirklich ordentlich und vor allem trotzdem noch bezahlbar. Die Soundqualität werde ich absichtlich NICHT bewerten, da ich nur über ein mittelmäßiges 5.1 System für Film und selbstgebaute BB-Hörner für die Musik betreibe.
