Don't like The Variable Loudness Function.

  • Summary: Harsh sound. To get any kind of decent sound, the Variable Loudness had to be engaged to the point there was too little power.

  • Summary: At 75 watts per channel and very, very low THD at life-size volume, this receiver is a fine purchase. There are many different input options and a dial on the front to send the signal to other devices such a high quality wireless headphones. The Pure Direct feature allows bypassing of the traditional equalizing options to produce the best quality sound.

Not perfect, but not bad either.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Received the S500BL a couple of days ago -- nice quick free shipping service -- and have it running to replace a 30-year-old Sony 500ES amp coupled to a 35-year-od Advent Model 300 amp/tuner. (Ya, I'm an old guy.) I use it only for audio, not as a home theater accessory. First impression: the sound quality is nice and precise, both through my outgoing Advent speakers and on my new Klipsch towers.

I love this receiver!

Jack L. Hartman "Jack", Amazon

  • Summary: I love this stereo receiver. I bought it because my years old Sony finally died. I needed a receiver that had multiple RCA inputs and a Phono input. I still have LPs! This receiver fit's the bill and doesn't have HDMI lots, that I didn't need. It's a great replacement for my failled unit.
