Summary: Bought this to run some pre wired speakers in a new house on my patio and in living room ceilings. My current amp would not allow me to hook up surround and two other sets. I loved how simple this was to set up and operate. It has just the basic functions, not all the stuff I never use on my other amp that requires the manual to use and I don't need, because I don't have a sound studio. Missing a couple of modern plugins...like HDMI and Optical...
Summary: This receiver is less than average; in fact, it is terrible; poor. I hooked it up and at first I thought it didn't work. I did everything I know to do (which is a LOT) to make sure everything was connected properly but I got NO SOUND. After more than an hour, I decided to turn it past "20" on the volume control; still nothing. I turned it past "30" -- nothing. I was going to turn it as high as it could go and when it got to "40", I finally heard a whimper of sound. What?
Summary: Great little box for the bucks. wish the big knob on the right was for tuning, as opposed to a volume control. Works fine for us, because we use this monstly as an amp for our Pioneer CD player. If we were using it as a tuner, going through setting up presets would be a lot quicker with a tuning knob.
Summary: The receiver is easy to connect and operate but the sound is not very good. The bass was a bit of a disappointment, and there is no mid-range. If I would have heard it before I bought it, I would not have bought it.
Summary: Only had this product for a couple of weeks but so far it is a great buy. Volume is way more than what I expected for the price. Shipping was standard method but still arrived in a couple of days. Made an old cd player and speakers sound new again. If you are looking for something to "pump the volume" this is it.
