Summary: Understand what you're getting... First of all, the fact that it can power two channels of audio doesn't mean that you can select which one you can play audio out of. You cannot. If you plug in speakers on both channels, it plays on both channels. There is no selectivity. The whole reason I bought this was to play on an indoor set of speakers and occasionally play the same music on an outdoor set of speaker, so the A/B had to be selectable.
I like it it's working great the one thing I don't ...

Summary: I like it it's working great the one thing I don't like as far as over all is u have to get up and turn if off and on can't do it without a remote other than that sounds is great and Would buy another
Summary: Can't really add more to any of the negative comments as they seemed pretty full. I read most all of the reviews and it seems to me that most were expecting more bang for their buck. It's a solid unit with all the advertised options. For a little shop stereo it works fine using small JBL satellite speakers. If you want a fancy spectrum display don't bother because this one is only meant to amuse you.
Summary: I will start off by mentioning that I paid $75 bucks for a receiver that puts out 100w/channel 8ohm and 50w/channel 4ohm. Let's start with that, because if you assume you're getting a yamaha or marantz style receiver, then you're smoking something you shouldn't. However, aside from the annoying blue lights and cryptic radio programming (I never listen to regular radio anyway) this is a perfectly decent little extra room amp.
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace an older unit. hooked it up to a brand new cd player and speakers and it sounded terrible. had a constant hiss all the time and after playing it for about 15 minutes something started smelling like smoke. come to find out it was the new receiver. needless to say I returned it and purchased a different brand. I didn't even want to mess with trying another one like they suggested. totally not impressed with this piece!!!
Summary: I had an old, old 40-watt amp that I used to power a pair of speakers hooked to my computer in my bedroom/office. It took a crap after 20 years and this unit looked to fit my needs. I like it with one exception. The remote doesn't control the power on and off. I have recently pulled a set of Klipsch speakers out of the closet and hooked them to it. Wow! I am surprised the neighbors haven't complained!! Even at low volume it seems pretty crisp and clear.
Summary: When I power this unit on it only comes on part of the way. Sometimes it will power up all the way and the music starts to play then it will shut down half way. The only thing in the screen is 4 little symbols in the upper left hand corner and the scale on the right hand side. If it did work properly it would probably be a nice stereo. Oh well I guess I bought a lemon.
Horrible feedback and hissing noises, there's a reason for the inexpensive price.

Summary: Connected two bookshelf 8Ohm speakers to is. Immediately started getting loud feedback and popping sounds. Checked connections, made sure everything was tight, right to right, left to left, etc. Noises continued. It is now a very expensive lawn ornament.
