Excerpt: This review is a little different because I bought this unit and had it delivered to my Florida address but my components are in Canada. I bought it here because the price is about $ cheaper than in Canada...even after the exchange!Anyway..
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
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.
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.
Excerpt: I use this to run my man cave stereo system, as well as for Directv sound through my computer; and Sirius Radio. I have old Bose 501 floor speakers, and the sound is awesome!!The only drawback is that new USB turntables do not work in the phono jacks..
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Very well packaged and easily configured. The only negative is the manual. It assumes a sophisticated audio owner with its terminology and is quite unclear on how to operate an ipod through the unit. Manuals should be written for the least knowledgeable user; this one was not.
Excerpt: I wanted something low cost and with full internet/AirPlay functionality for my office music system. This fits the bill. It really has an incredible number of features for about $, like a phono preamp and a pre amp out and pre amp in.
