so only two channels was fine and I needed a phono input for my turntable

Tara T., Amazon
22 October 2014
  • 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. Starting with the Yamaha I found the sound restrained and lacking punch. Switching to the NAD (also 50w) the first thing I noticed was the guitar distorted, while it was clean on the Yamaha.

  • Summary: for the price, it's pretty good. I prefer an analog display for the tuner rather than just digital. But I am old school.

Pretty good.

Richard C. Porter, Amazon

  • Summary: I feel that the 0.5db steps for the volume are ridiculous. It takes way too many turns of the volume knob to adjust the volume. There simply is no need for such a fine adjustment of the volume. Secondly, if I had my druthers, I’d like to have a switched ac receptacle on the rear of the unit – just like in the old days. I have a powered sub that will not switch itself on or off and that’s where I would have the use of such a receptacle.

Supplement to TV speakers

Wrenchbender, Adorama
20 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Using for audio and home theater. Replaces my not so hot TV speakers. My research showed that a stereo system would be better for playing both music and DVDs. Not disappointed in the sound quality. It is VERY good. Even the bass is all that I need. Sound reproduction is incredible. Especially considering the cost of this amp/receiver. Using with 2 Klipsch bookshelf speakers. Only real issue for me was the I get NO sound at all until the volume is at -45 db or so.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality

Not loud enough with 100 watt speakers?

Wrenchbender13 "Road Warrior 8411", Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: Seems like a great receiver. Quality seems great and it performs pretty well. Only issue is that I need to turn up the volume quite a bit to get the sound level that seems normal. But, that may be the way I have it connected OR it may be that I am powering my Klipsch 100 watt speakers with a 50 watt per channel amplifier?

Handles 2 sets of speakers affordably

lavineteam, Adorama
30 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I use it outside in our outdoor kitchen. We have speakers built in to the barbeque island and speakers by the pool. I liked having a Speaker A and Speaker B choice or A+B so we can have it playing further away or closer or both sets. It works great for that and I also plug in my iPad or Iphone to the receiver to play Sirius Satellite radio through the wi-fi in our house.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
