Summary: I have two of these, and they sound quite good and are fairly heavy. For the money they are hard to beat. This model is just about the same as a Sherwood RX-4105. My son has the Sherwood, and his remote control will operate the Insignia (and the Insignia remote will operate his Sherwood).
Summary: I bought this to replace a much-mourned Onkyo which was destroyed in transit during my move to Missouri. I didn't have much money. So I looked for the absolute, cheapest thing I could find that would probably sound, at least, decent.
Summary: This unit was purchased to replace an older failed receiver in a bedroom. The NS R2000 is a basic, strong, low distortion, stereo amplifier/receiver, The radio section is reasonably sensitive but not excellent.
Summary: I just got it a couple days ago so I can not speak to the longevity of the product but I am absolutely impressed with the quality of the sound. I have 10 speakers of various quality around the house, all sound great.
Summary: I purchased the Insignia 5.1 Home Theater system and it failed after one year. Warranty wouldn't cover it. Since the speakers were still good I decided to purchase just a DVD player and a receiver. So I went with the Insignia NS-R2000 because of the price and compatibility.
Summary: This receiver is excellent quality and plenty of amps. All depends how you use this great product. IT SHOULD BE USED FOR SURROUND. This system is better than 400-500 dollars receivers out there. Overstock.com is the Best . The receiver is beautiful.
Summary: I like everything about this receiver. A ton of power. The remote is very busy with a lot of buttons which is a hassle to get used to. The overall condition of the receiver was perfect - and I received 2 remotes with it (in case someone is missing one with their refurbished unit)
