Excerpt: This is our third Denon receiver purchase, none has been disappointing. This newer model isnt as quirky as its predecessors the controls are more straight-forward and sound is terrific. Vanns shipping and updating by emails was perfect as usual.
Better than most low priced 2 channel receivers currently on the market.

Summary: The EBay seller offered a good deal and I am pleased with the value. The sound quality is very clean with low noise. It sounds better than a good Harman Kardon receiver I have owned for almost 10 years. The am/fm tuner picks up stations fine and sounds good. The back lights and controls could be more user friendly, although if you read the manual and know where and what all the controls do, its fairly easy to understand and operate.
Excerpt: I was previously powering my old loft mounted Altec Flamenos with a Hafler component system and was concerned that the advertised 80wchannel might not be adequate. I was pleasantly surprised with the tone quality at a reasonably high volume. Everything worked and was predictably well put together. I personally would like to have a leftright pan control. Musicians make use of these things.
