Great 2 Channel for the money!!!

 

I just got into 2 Channel audio this past year and at this point I'm not looking to invest too much $$$ in this hobby. I'm not a big sterophile but I care about sound quality and out of the multiple units I have tried and tested this is the best bang...

Price, Look, Sound, Features. Great value for an amp with Phono and Pure Direct. Sounds Great

No dis-like, Best 2 Channel I have seen under $500 and I work in the industry

Great Amp for Keepin it Simple

 

After 20+ years of loyal service, my Nakamichi RE-1 died. I don't really care for home theaters, but needed to drive a Bose Acoustimass system and 4 pairs of in-wall Polks. I wired all of the speakers into the A jacks via a 6-way speaker selector &...

For $150 it's a solid little "SUV" for an old-time receiver replacement. No tech on the inside = no tech problems. No need to "configure" any bull droppings. Easier to run than an ipod. Just hook up your speakers & away you go

It's ugly, but who cares. It needs to get cranked up to fire up my Bose speakers adequately, but who cares. It's not worth my time to even bother with comparisons or details for something that costs less than a car tire

Good replacement for older receiver

 

Sounds and looks good, and has real turntable inputs.

A great replacement for our older Yamaha receiver that finally went after 25+ years. It has more inputs, a good remote, and sounds fine. Also has pretty good reception (though the fact that there are no AM presets allowed is odd). Haven't tried the...

I wondered if buying a receiver was too "old-school" for our cloud-based, streaming world, but as I already have the other components I went for it. I looked at AV receivers as well, and wondered if a 5.1 receiver would be a better investment, but...

Clean stereo sound!

 

First, I would like to thank the people at Vanns. They were very nice and helpful on making this purchase. Will definitely deal with again.Now on to the actual product.This receiver is nicer then I expected. Dont let the 50 watts per channel fool you....

Excellent product represents great value

 

As I work at home, I rely on my radio for entertainment and news throughout the day. When my 20+ year old Nakamichi died, I searched for an affordable replacement that provided quality sound and good radio reception (as I live in a fringe reception...

Superb Sysytem

 

In January 2010 I needed to replace my Yamaha Shelf system that I had purchased in 1997. I decided on purchasing the Yamaha Shelf System MCR-330 but was really dissapointed with the overall sound quality. I recently purchased the R-S300 Stereo Receiver...
