  • Summary: I came from an era when component stereo systems was what you did. I still do that. I play several instruments and lay tracks down and mix them on a mixer. It is important to hear the music without inhanced lows or highs. When using the true sound button, what I jear is the way it is.

  • 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.

Not perfect, but not bad either.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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.
