the price and description sounded good....but


Looked good coming out of the box ; power came on

CAUTION TO EVERYONE**... This receiver can NOT handle the signal tranfer via HDMI cable from the receiver to the speakers and tv. Customer service said i have a "weak signal strength". Uh, coming directly from a cable high def receiver/dvr???? I don't...

Great entry level HT receiver


On my way to becoming the Noah of newegg---gotta have one (preferably TWO!) of everything before the flood.

Great price for value for an entry-level HT receiver ; HDMI X 2 in/1out works for me, great to dispense with superfluous cabling ; Movies on D* now come over in 5.1 DD glory, a revelation to me. (easy to make it pass-through if you want just TV sound)...

Most complicated setup I've encountered so far, but now at least I've got all my cable ends labeled for the next time ; The manual was labyrinthine. Normally I wouldn't notice, but had to read this one to complete the installation correctly ; (The...

Great Entry Level Receiver


I did not need a receiver that had 1080p upscaling, my TV and PS3 can do this. As stated my and most new Blu-Ray players can unpack the new DTS-HD and Dolby True-HD codecs inside themselves before sending the format raw to the receiver. So I didn't...

I recently bought my first HD TV in late spring and knew that I would need to get a surround sound setup with a receiver to take full benefit of it. Never owning a receiver before I scoured the internet for hours to find what I needed. This receiver is...

Would be nice to have maybe 1 more HDMI port on the back. Does not have an S-Video input, but then I really didn't buy this receiver to hook up old non-hd equipment

No connection for a second set of speakers


Sound is great and it looks good

I was supprised that it did not have a connection for a second set of speakers (B). I have to run the speakers inside my house and my outside speakers at the same time. You have to go up to the next model (about $100 more) just to get this connection

decent power for everyday listening


had to returm it to new egg. had a dent on top, suspect ups fault. otherwise i realy liked the receiver. can not upconvert image no gui or osd remote funtions. need to know what u r doin to set it up. can be a bit intimidating.

easy set up ; great sound ; 0.05% thd ; 110 w/chanels ; hdmi connections for hooking to home theater ; can reassign the input name ; standard surround effects ; hooked to 120 w 4 reeivers with 100 w sub woofer: rocks the room and sounded really great

remote, can not be used if you do not read the manual ; although the sound is great, the capabilites are somewhat limited. i would recommend to spend the extr dollar and get a yamaha 465 or 565, easier to use although soundwise not as sharp as the 519...

she can roar, alright


not an audiophile, never owned a receiver, don't have the entire surround set up (just left and right main), but if you're looking for a receiver that can handle big sound for under 200, this thing is a dream. i don't know what effect a receiver has on...

just moved into a new house and spent a while looking for receivers on craigslist to find one on the cheap. didn't even think to buy new... how silly i was to doubt newegg ; with 140W kenwood speakers, we hooked up an iPod to the portable jack in front...

my tiny brain can't handle all the inputs and outputs
