This is an excellent product for the price it can't beat. I use it. For music only. It replaced a much more expensive receiver that got damaged during a move.it sounds better on the same set of speakers

You will spend more buying Onkyo products because this one will make you a believer

Supporting an analog turntable may not seem like a big deal, but I had to return a unit to another electronics store because the digital receiver DID NOT support the turntable. That\'s when I turn to J&R. They always have a great selection and their...
