  • 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!!!

Sounds nice,, More for Karaoke than Home audio

  • Pros: Nice package good sound quality and lots of power for the price. Very sensitive tuner.
  • Cons: The instruction (Owners manual) is weak, and that is being kind. I have not seen a manual this bad in years. The tuning is in need of serious work and the auto assigns channels without you being able to unselect them.

It's okay for where I use it.

  • 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.

Does not work properly

  • 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.

Garage

Eric Gorajec, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a receiver in my living room that blew out, the Sony tower speakers were still good. Instead of throwing away the old useless speakers I decided to buy this Pyle receiver. I thought it would be a Pyle of shhhhhh, but I have this receiver with my old speakers in the garage and its legit. If you intend to use this receiver for something like I did you will have no problems with it.

Low quality sound

  • Summary: There was a lot of line noise. When you turn it up it would get distorted quick. Not really worth purchasing.
