Requires being unplugged

 

I've read reviews of people having the same power issue I'm having (see cons) and apparently a firmware update resolves this known issue. However - I bought this unit to sit in my pool house and power some bose 151 outdoor speakers and it really sounds...

looks brand new ; great sound paired with BOSE 151se environmental speakers

i've noticed when system goes into standby when no input is detected it will not power back on using both power button and remote.. Only way to bring back to life is to unplug device and re-plug. PIA cause you lose all your settings each time

Good, solid, basic

 

Not many 2 channel stereo receivers around anymore yet that's all most of us need. This one does the job easily, without, with as many connections as you're likely to need and an uncluttered interface.

Jut right for a home office

 

This replaces an old set-up that finally died. It was easy to set up and works well with the rest of the things I purchased at the same time -- all middle-level equipment for a home office audio system.This product has... Easy to use controlsAbout...
