  • Excerpt: The receiver performs to my expectations, but using pandora, serius , or internet programming without an Android or iThing app is not really viable due to the receivers limited display. Overall very happy.

I am very glad I bought it

  • Summary: All you have to do is pick it up and examine it and you will tell just by the weight and heft of it and the attention to detail and smoothness of the controls that this is very well made quality piece of equipment. I have four identical "bookshelf" speakers. Pairs A and B.

Better Than Expected

  • Excerpt: This unit is excellent and has more features than I realized when I bought it. Setup was simple and it is mostly intuitive to use. The menu system requires some getting use to and a call to tech support was useful to decode the menu system. Tech support is fast and accurate.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote
  • Cons: Poor Interface

nice solid receiver

  • Excerpt: Replaced my old NAD receiver with this one. For a basic two channel setup for listening to classical music it works very well. There are plenty of hookups, including one for a phono/turntable, which is rare nowadays. Everything sounds clean and clear on my KEF speakers, plenty of power.
