Not Bad, Not Great
 
I purchased this receiver to replace my JVC 5032 (5.1 Receiver). I was intrigued by the USB input and 7.1 x 110 watts/channel.The USB is great. I used to run another plug-in (until it died) to my previous unit, but the clarity was not as great as the new 205s. Itunes and DVD's sound great. The only drawback is that when you turn the receiver off, it disconnects from Windows (making it a nuisance to wait for it to reconnect with windows)The radio is decent and local stations com...

JVC RX-D205S
 
Excellent receiver at a budget price. I upgraded from an eight-year-old JVC receiver because of more features and easier setup. Power is more than adequate for my environment, and controls make TV and DVD sound adjustments a snap. If you don't have mega-bucks, and want a quality receiver, this one may be for you.

I love this sound!
 
First off, I bought this mainly for music listening, but I will be using it for movies also.I always had personal a problem with digital receivers...they had clarity but lacked warmth and a powerful sound. Let me tell you, this has everything I like in a sound... digital clarity, no distortion, but yet it does not sacrifice warmth and presence- better described as a powerful sound.To be straight forward, the sound quality for this is awsome!!!My set up with this is ...

Everything Works...mostly, kinda
 
I've had my RX-D201S continuously powered on for the last six months, and it still works. The unit does get very warm. The USB connection has worked great from day one, and that is why I bought this unit. A paid $168.00 (shipping included), and I thought it was a good price, since a good USB sound card will cost that much itself.The only problem I've had is that a small amount of noise (clicks & pops) is generated over the USB connection. The noise only occurs when playing 44.1khz audio (m...

Speaker wire connectors are cheap
 
I was looking at the entire series of JVC receivers, the 205, 211, 302, 411 and 702. I almost got a 211 but I noticed the speaker wire connectors on the back are the cheap push in clamps. Those tend to break off bits ofwire and cause short circuits. The 702 uses the good screw down connectors. The 402 uses half of each! I strongly suggest you go to [...], click on support, enter the model number and download the owners manual before buying. The description on Amazon only scratches the surf...

I love digital amp receivers!
 
I originally bought the 401 but exchanged it for the 205 as the 401 was much too complicated for my purposes. I also found that the HDMIs on the 401 are for convience (fewer cables) and does not make any noticable improvements over component connects. When I up-grade to HD-DVD I can still run an HDMI into my LCD-HDTV with a digital audio out to the 205. The 205 does not have all the extra features of the 401 but it performs just as well. I use the 205 for surround in my bedroom driving 7 JBL sat...

Superb sound quality, excellent feature set
 
I am using the unit for audio applications, not home theater (which I may try later). The receiver drives my Klipsch speakers providing a sound that is very distinct and yet without sharp edges. All members of my critical-eared family love the sound. The direction connection via USB works wonderfully with my Digital Juke Box (MediaMonkey). This important feature is not available in most competitive products. In fact, I was so happy with this product that within two weeks I bought a second o...

Excellent Value Receiver
 
I am very pleased with the performance at the pricepoint. The sound improvement for both movies and satellite on my TV is outstanding. I have not used either the game mode or the PC mode. The auto-select for digital processing is impressive as is the selection of environments. The only annoyance is the remote control. It is much too small with many little tiny buttons. Even at that, it does NOT control my Direct-TV box so I STILL need a second remote to watch satellite TV.

Lot of features for the $$$
 
The JVC RX-D205 has a ton of features usually not found in a HT reciever in the <$200.00 range, such as:(3 digital audio inputs, USB connection, various surround options,etc,etc.).Sounds great in my small living room on 5.1 setting.As always, speakers are major factors, especially listening to music.With all the features, it can be a bit tedious to set up intially, otherwise 5 stars ***I strongly advise reading the manual first***
