Summary: You get what you pay for, but in this case it's mostly fine. My only complaint was that the 1/8th" audio input jack got pushed into the case when someone bumped the plug. When I opened the case, I found that while all the other inputs were securely attached to the case with screws, the 1/8" jack was merely glued to the inside of the case.
Summary: I'm an engineer & a tech person, & have over 40 years of experience in building, buying, & playing with electronic equipment. I've found that most products function adequately; many suffer from some type or types of issues, & some surprise w/ their cleverness. Regardless, I'm seldom moved to write a review on any piece of equipment. However, in this case, I literally feel as if I've been robbed of ~ $100.00 US.
Summary: Bought two of these receivers because of the price. One for home for the ceiling mount speakers and one for work to power six different speakers. To be honest, I didn't expect much performance or volume for that matter but I was so pleasantly surprised. The sound is great and the units don't get hot like my Onkyo's did. I won't say this is the best receiver ever, but it over delivers based on the price paid.
Summary: This unit plays an ipod/ipad, although I'm not sure if it is digital input. The tuner is very weak at maintaining a signal and staying on a station, even with the exterrnal FM antenna. My biggest complaint is that the remote control doesn't have an on/off button. Sound is good, and it pushes 2-25 watt outdoor "rock-looking" speakers well. Good price, quick shipping, and otherwise ab out what I expected.
Summary: I bought this for our basement in our craft workshop. Hooked it up to the mp3 player, turned the volume ALL the way up, and could not hear it on the other side of the basement. Defiantly NOT 800 watts of power here (I almost doubt if there's 8). Yes, I know my stereos.... and this was a waste of money.... don't waste yours.
Summary: Over all just a crappy product. I will not buy another thing that has the Technical Pro name on it. SD card reader doesn't work, radio might as well be non exist, Bad feed back sound ever time you turn it on. What else can I say it just sucks!!!
