Impressed Buyer


I was very suprise at the performance of this unit. Previously used a top end amp/preamp with 105 watts per channel stereo. This unit not only matched but exceeded my audio quality targets. Simple hookup, easy operation and ample imputs. Excellent...

Exactly what I wanted!


I have had this receiver about 3 weeks and it is great. I upgraded to this receiver from a Harman Kardon that was nice, but my technologically challenged wife had a hard time with. I also wanted the ability to plug my PS3, Wii, Iphone, Directv and...

Nice Features but Poor Quality Construction


Liked it when I bought it, but the HDMI out feature stopped working with in three months of purchase. We had both HDMI and component inputs from game machine, cable box, DVD player, ect, and the receiver stopped displaying any video from them at all....

Inexpensive, video upscaling, good features for price

broke within the first three months

Decent AVR but has Issues

Good sound, decent output but could be better

Doesn't play well with others


It doesn't work with my media player. I've never had a problem with any other entertainment systems before.

Beautifully Solid


I bought this receiver as my first stand alone receiver. (I have previously owned Home Theater in a Box units) I wanted to build my own home theater from the ground up. I found this item for 30% off at a store closing and I couldn't be happier. Because...

Works without a hitch

Can be a little confusing to work with

Great package fror a small price.


If you need a nice receiver to simplify your devices connected to a TV and speakers this has a lot of good things. Connect up all the devices then add one HDMI Arc cable to the TV and it figures out which one you turned on and sends the video to the TV...

Lots of nice integrated features

It's not everything and you can't easily configure the remote for other devices

HDMI output defective


The HDMI output was defective on the 1st one I purchased. I exchanged it without difficulty, but the new one proved to have the same defective HDMI output jack within 2 weeks. What's the point. It's cheaply made for warehouse sales.

When it works, it's OK

2 out of 2 defective - returning 2nd one
