Incredible buy


Does everything it says it would. Almost sets itself up. Sound quality is excellent. This receiver is worth much more than the price I paid.

Great Receiver


Went to the local 'big box' discount retailer and they couldn't come close to meeting this deal. As always, this company delivers in record time, thanks!

Great Reiver


Very easy setup. I have multi-room amplifiers connected to it, as this replaced my legacy hi end Sony. Noticed there is no amp pre-out, but I connected the tape-out to my pre-amps.

Very good, I think?


It was easy to set up and it sounds great when it works. But sometimes turns off while watching TV. You have to turn it back on and raise the volume. I may have to return it if the problem continues.

Sounds great

Turns itself off in the middle of a TV program or movie

I found this receiver for about 300 dollars and think that's a pretty good price at this point. I have this paired with klipsch speakers, Sony's 55HX929 and their S-780 BDP and I am very pleased with it all. I am no audiophile and don't get into a lot...
