Summary: Set this up and it worked great, for a while. After some time it would stop working. The unit would be on, but the light indicating which line was the input was gone. I turned the dial and it still didn't work. I used the remote to set the input, but it still didn't work.
Summary: I cannot speak to the quality of the unit. I wish I could. The first one delivered came in a flimsy over-sized box with insufficient padding. The box was delivered by UPS broken open. I refused the delivery.

My main enjoyment comes from listening to vocals performed by the great singers of the past. For example, at this moment I am listening to Nat King Cole singing "When I fall in love with you.

Summary: So it's more than adequate for an integrated amplifier, however, there are not many choice at this price level so not too much to compare. The other alternate units on my short list were from Cambridge audio (CA), Emotiva, Marantz, Onkyo and NAD.
