No longer relevant to todays' technology


Probably a great buy in 2002 (prior to popularity of digital and HD), or for someone who wants decent sound out of their analog inputs. If you are an audiophile though, don't consider this receiver. The unit does play digital audio, but cannot detect...

It does pump great sound

User unfriendly, complicated operation, bulky, AM and FM are poor at best even in good reception areas
