Bang for the buck! Lasts forever.

 

I bought this at a garage sale 4 years ago for $40. Best purchase ever.

It powers most speakers under the sun just fine. At one point in time, I used it in an emergency to power 2 18" DJ speakers for 4 hours straight. I was very impressed at its ability to project so much power though those giant speakers in that...

The main speaker connectors are annoying and cause the wires to get in the way of other things... Just seems like a stupid design. However its behind the stereo so I realllllly don't care

It lasted two years

 

I am going to spend more money on a receiver this time around as I do not want to replace another. Receivers at this price must be skimping on something. This thing was too good to be true, unfortunately.

I got this receiver at the same time as my speakers and it made them sound perfect. I am not an audiophile but this receiver combined with my energy speakers produced the best sound I've ever heard out of a home theater system

Reliability. This unit was a 5 star for me until it died. I believe the power supply failed. Now I am very disappointed with it as it caused me an unexpected expense ; I guess "you get what you pay for" applies well in this case. I don't know if my...

the price and description sounded good....but

 

Looked good coming out of the box ; power came on

CAUTION TO EVERYONE**... This receiver can NOT handle the signal tranfer via HDMI cable from the receiver to the speakers and tv. Customer service said i have a "weak signal strength". Uh, coming directly from a cable high def receiver/dvr???? I don't...

Great entry level HT receiver

 

On my way to becoming the Noah of newegg---gotta have one (preferably TWO!) of everything before the flood.

Great price for value for an entry-level HT receiver ; HDMI X 2 in/1out works for me, great to dispense with superfluous cabling ; Movies on D* now come over in 5.1 DD glory, a revelation to me. (easy to make it pass-through if you want just TV sound)...

Most complicated setup I've encountered so far, but now at least I've got all my cable ends labeled for the next time ; The manual was labyrinthine. Normally I wouldn't notice, but had to read this one to complete the installation correctly ; (The...

Great Entry Level Receiver

 

I did not need a receiver that had 1080p upscaling, my TV and PS3 can do this. As stated my and most new Blu-Ray players can unpack the new DTS-HD and Dolby True-HD codecs inside themselves before sending the format raw to the receiver. So I didn't...

I recently bought my first HD TV in late spring and knew that I would need to get a surround sound setup with a receiver to take full benefit of it. Never owning a receiver before I scoured the internet for hours to find what I needed. This receiver is...

Would be nice to have maybe 1 more HDMI port on the back. Does not have an S-Video input, but then I really didn't buy this receiver to hook up old non-hd equipment

No connection for a second set of speakers

 

Sound is great and it looks good

I was supprised that it did not have a connection for a second set of speakers (B). I have to run the speakers inside my house and my outside speakers at the same time. You have to go up to the next model (about $100 more) just to get this connection

decent power for everyday listening

 

had to returm it to new egg. had a dent on top, suspect ups fault. otherwise i realy liked the receiver. can not upconvert image no gui or osd remote funtions. need to know what u r doin to set it up. can be a bit intimidating.

easy set up ; great sound ; 0.05% thd ; 110 w/chanels ; hdmi connections for hooking to home theater ; can reassign the input name ; standard surround effects ; hooked to 120 w 4 reeivers with 100 w sub woofer: rocks the room and sounded really great

remote, can not be used if you do not read the manual ; although the sound is great, the capabilites are somewhat limited. i would recommend to spend the extr dollar and get a yamaha 465 or 565, easier to use although soundwise not as sharp as the 519...

she can roar, alright

 

not an audiophile, never owned a receiver, don't have the entire surround set up (just left and right main), but if you're looking for a receiver that can handle big sound for under 200, this thing is a dream. i don't know what effect a receiver has on...

just moved into a new house and spent a while looking for receivers on craigslist to find one on the cheap. didn't even think to buy new... how silly i was to doubt newegg ; with 140W kenwood speakers, we hooked up an iPod to the portable jack in front...

my tiny brain can't handle all the inputs and outputs
