Summary: This receiver is just really obnoxious. I've owned Onkyos and Pioneers and thought I would give this a try for a home office and its sound is just obnoxious. It has a high-pitched mechanical sound that recurs every 2 minutes for about 4 seconds solid.
Summary: Epic fail all around with this device. Very unhappy. First, the ipod doc is not universal. there is no way to use anything else but an iPod no newer iOS device. We got past that issue and decided to try Bluetooth - the thing is not transmitting a Bluetooth signal; we tried every device in the house...
Excerpt: This amp produces the high pitched noise that others has mentioned when speakers are directly connected to outputs. The noise is not noticeable using impedance matching external volume controls in my application. If I had to connect speakers directly to this amp I would return it.
Pros: Good Power, Good Price
Cons: Difficult To Use, Noise On Outputs, Poor Quality, Tuner Selector
Summary: It has some issues... the volume level goes by two's (2,4,6,8, etc) which makes too much rise in volume! Also the default setting when you turn it on is an issue too. Looking for a different stereo:((
Would NOT recommend purchasing this unit. READ the other reviews also.

Summary: I would not recommend purchasing this unit. I have owned Pyle equipment in the past and was very happy with the quality however based on so many other reviews I believe there is a fundamental design flaw in this unit.
5 stars for what I bought it for, a no-brainer if you need power and don't care about bluetooth.

Summary: I recently resto-modded my CS-811a 8 ohm 120 watt and Technical 8 ohm 150 watt speaker cabinets replacing speakers and rebuilding the electronics, the next on my list was my Pioneer SX 727 receiver which did a fine job driving the speakers.
Summary: I was looking fo a receiver with Bluetooth capability and this unit was quite a surprise. I use it regularly with my cell phone and satellite radio connection. Set up was super easy and it works great with my Bose 301 speakers. Excellent value. I am thrilled.

Summary: Sorry to say (because I bought 3 of them) that all three have a very annoying buzzing sound at low decibel volume. It sounds like some kind of interference, it happens briefly every two to three minutes. Also, the volume control is divided into 2 decibel increments. ie.
