  • 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...

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.

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.

  • 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.

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...
