Well for what I paid I guess I did ok. Now that I've had this reciever for a while though I can truely say, "I think its total junk." How can you guys write "Plenty of power"? 500 watts? HA. I have a set of cheap $100 Altec Lansing computer speakers...

Great A/V receiver, and an excellent buy. Not too heavy with bells and whistles, and those that are provided are not the best ones on the market. I've been using it for over two years with no performance failures. Plenty of power, and plenty of bass...

This is a follow up to the review I gave back in 2001. I tried to replace this receiver with a Marantz 5300 (it has DolbyII and 6.1), but after one week I returned the Marantz ... it didn't sound as sweet as the Technics and it didn't seem to have as...

Product Specifications

SA-DX950 top-end receiver gives you multi-channel home theater surround sound with outstanding audio reproduction, even handling the ultra-high fidelity of DVD-Audio. In order to handle this, a receiver must be equipped with an amplifier circuit that can do justice to its wide frequency range and outstanding S/N ratio. This receiver is built accordingly, with the correct features to let you enjoy this thrilling next-generation audio experience. It has an amp power module that features an all-stage MOS-FET configuration. With most amplifiers, output is controlled by its input current, but MOS-FETs use voltage control to get an outstanding high-frequency response. This gives you an incredibly dynamic range of audio. SA-DX950 comes with a Dolby Digital/DTS decoder so you can experience the 5.1-channel digital soundtrack encoded on a DVD or laserdisc. With this decoder, you'll enjoy a remarkably natural sense of ambiance and dynamic realism. This receiver uses the Technics Times 5 concept, which provides the five main channels of your system with a total of 500W of Class H+ amplifier output. This means that when you watch movies recorded with Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you get a full reproduction of what the movie sounded like in the theater.
