Very nice receiver with options.

  • Summary: This is a great receiver, with plenty of power. I am currently daisy-chaining 2 pairs of speakers instead of connecting one pair to each pair of jacks on the back. My speakers are Bose 301s and Bose 161s.

Problem solved

rick, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I replaced an ancient receiver, of good quality, with this receiver, and as an average listener, I feel I got a good deal, in both quality and price. As usual, Amazon came through again, as after a couple of weeks, I had a minor problem with the product and they replaced it, in an amazingly short...

Not without shortcomings

Derek H., Newegg
27 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for use at a computer station and except for the tone controls, which I never intended using anyway, this is a pretty decent receiver. I have it connected to a Creative Audigy SE sound card via the six 5.1 surround sound inputs and it does a pretty good job with computer sounds, music...
  • Pros: 1) Has 5.1 surround sound inputs. Ideal for connecting to a sound card or computer's onboard sound. Only requires three standard 3.5mm to stereo RCA cables instead of the usual one for stereo only. 2) Has subwoofer preamp output. 3) Excellent remote, all controls are available using it including ...
  • Cons: 1) White noise (hiss) increases dramatically when tone controls are switched in. Noise increases even further with increasing treble control setting. You are probably better off keeping tone controls switched out using the Tone Direct switch. Took off an egg for this. 2) FM tuning is manual only....

OK for less-sensitive speakers

Sunny, Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought it from another retailer at a much lower price (~$50). It would receive 4 star for that price. And my current rating based on the >$100 price, at which point you could really get a (much) better one from a better brand. The good: 1. Has a subwoofer preamp out.

  • Summary: Very happy with sound , quality, price, and simplicity of hook up. Just what I was looking for. I didn't need all of the bells & whistles of expensive homee theatre packages. I just wanted a simple stereo reciever and some great speakers. With your hellp I now have both!

Very Happy

J. A. Selmer Sr., Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: It is a mix of analog and digital. Hookups for speakers etc. are exactly as I hoped ,simple and straight forward. Tuning and controls are easy. My only downer is the remote control which again is digital, this is fine but the window on the face of the receiver is to small for me to read from where I...

suzzy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this in good faith,It arrived on the 4th of November, and it died on the 20th of December, when i turn it on, it lasts for 10 seconds then click off. I am very angry because i paid good money for something that had less than 15 hours on it.
