A blessing in disguise!!

 

This stereo amplifier is so easy to use that no explanations are needed. However, the user\'s manual was a bit frustrating and confusing concerning the impedance selector. I think the manual should say what happens if my speakers are 2 or 3 ohms off....

Outstanding Product for the money

 

This product is a great value for the price. It matches much more expensive TV's in picture quality, features, and delivers 240Hz performance as well. It also has Internet capabilities that make this one to buy.

Solid traditional 2 channel amp

 

While all the rage is 7.1 systems, you cannot get accurate sound reproduction or true power performance unless you're willing to invest several thousand dollars. Simple logic would indicate that a 7.1 system costing $500 cannot provides the same...
