Consumer review by:

Excellent choice for a budget minded buyer

 

Finally got to give this receiver a workout this past weekend after buying it a couple months back. This receiver will really rock your speakers whether music or DVD - but it really shines with DVD. Concerts sound like you're there and movie special...

Grrrreat Sound
