Summary: Despite not having the best sound quality I like this receiver. It works good after about two years. The only problem is that the white LEDS went out in the center of the power meter. No biggie. I would recommend this to someone on a budget that needs a decent receiver.
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.
