Inexpensive and the amplifier works well

I bought this receiver because of its speaker switching capability. Well, it doesn't work. Both the A and C speakers (I only have two pair connected) continue to play regardless of the speaker setting. This impacts the second audio source selection,...

Great product for the price


Price, price, price ; There isn't a 4-channel amp in this price range, at all. It outputs enough power to fill my half acre back yard with four pairs of speakers, easily. I can keep a nice low volume, yet fill the entire space with audio

Poor remote control function.


The unit works fine. The remote has only a 6ft range. Zaps battery power from the two triple AAA batteries and does not function at all after two days use. I would not have purchased the product if I had known the remote was going to be a problem.

Not many Stereo Receiver out there to choose from


I was looking for a music only system and I found what I needed in this system. There are a lot of theater surround sound systems out there but I feel that they do not give you the sound that you can get from a stereo receiver. I use this system for...
