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
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?
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
Summary: one of the best sounds receivers for the price, and it has a tuner... I need better speakers so I can turn it above 0 db.... I popped the ones I have. with too much bass in the face, I now have it running with the bass turned all the way down and it still sounds good
