Excerpt: Bought to replace old 80s vintage stereo receiver with bad right channel. Needed something to handle all my components (turntable, cassette player, CD & DVD). Main reservation on giving 5 stars is that analog components (turntable & cassette deck) require much higher volume setting than digital...
Summary: As a replacement for my Technics Receiver, this was very easy to set up, and the reception of both bands (AM/FM) was great. The separation and sound quality was unmatched and much improved over my Technics Receiver. I would recommend this to friends.
so only two channels was fine and I needed a phono input for my turntable

Summary: I bought this receiver to replace my aging NAD AV716. I didn't need something for HT, so only two channels was fine and I needed a phono input for my turntable. After receiving the unit I did an A-B test with my NAD running through JBL bookshelf speakers using the Smithereens 11 CD.
Excerpt: I find no CONs, but only PROs about this receiver. The sound quality is great and doesn't sound muffled as did my old TECHNICS receiver. The reception in both AM and FM are very clear and easy to tune to the right station without "jiggling" the dial to tune in stations---they are precise.
