Very solid receiver

D. Haines, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: Great replacement for my very old -- and probably not very good -- stereo receiver. Lots of input and output plugs. Has direct wire connection for adding a sub-woofer (which is worth it for fullness of sound in the mid- to lower ranges) Clean design.

VERY SATISFIED

Joseph G. Kurland, Amazon
2 February 2015
  • Summary: It produces great sound, and was exactly what I needed when my old receiver just quit on me. It was easy to hook up my three existing components, CD, tape, and turntable, and it has two sets of speaker connections to accommodate and play one or both sets of speakers that are situated in different...

Don't like The Variable Loudness Function.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I love this receiver!

Jack L. Hartman "Jack", Amazon
24 September 2014
  • 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.
