Much better than you'd think
 
Right out of the box I was happy. I replaced my Kenwood with the Panasonic and was not dissapointed. My main reason was to have wireless rear surround speakers. I also had to buy the rear surround setup, which I bouight referb'd. Something I can expect to function properly, and I was not dissapointed. They work perfectly. Also, I wanted a receiver that was more with the current technology, again, not dissapointed.The Pan is not perfect, but for me it fit the bill. Realize, that you are no...

just what I was looking for
 
It has everything I was looking for with a reasonable price. I found it easy to connect and set up. Remote is not perfect, but workable.

Very Nice
 
I have had this system for only two days now, but I love it. Keep in mind that I am not an "audiofile". This is my first upgrade since the 1980's, so I can't really compare it to anything. I do know that it sounds incredibly good and very powerful. Can't wait to hear it with more expensive speakers and higher quality speaker wires. If you are the type that likes to jump right in without reading the owners manual, at least read page 14 before you try listening to in. That would have saved m...

awesome for the money
 
There are some really great reviews below so I will just share how mine is set up, what I love, what I like, what I don't like. Here goes...1) speakers are klipsch reference 82; I also have a center channel and surrounds so currently 5.1 for TV and movies and bi-wired w/sub woofer for CD's... most of the time.2) I do have a Samsung set top box to grab the high end HD channels and the video goes to the TV via a HDMI-DVI conversion cable; the audio goes via optical to optic...

Incredible sound quality, no 1080p. Aaaahhh!!!
 
I love this thing. However, it might be going back to the store because it can't handle 1080p! I'm dissappointed. I should have read the owner's manual not just the specs on the store's website. I could simply connect the Oppo directly to my TV and use optical/coax for audio, but if I ever get a 1080p HD-DVD player I will either miss out on TrueHD audio or be limited to 1080i. Such a small nitpick, but I'm a perfectionist. Maybe I can get over it. The sound quality is THAT good.I lov...

A 4+ star audio receiver with 2+ star video functions
 
IN SHORT: As an audio-video receiver, it's solid on the A, but falls short on the V. Still, it's a very good option if that fits your needs.The Panasonic SA-XR57 is a solid receiver for someone looking for to fill out the audio section of their home theater, especially if the compact size and lower heat output of this digitally amplified model are important to you. The sound and power are good, and the audio feature set is reasonably complete. For people who primarily need audio,...

Limited functionality: home theatre for DVD, pretty much
 
To me, the promise and point of HDMI is that you have a single cable going to your TV (and even a single cable from other components).But this unit will only work this way if you are just using a DVD player (or just connecting HDTV) because the single HDMI output is just a pass-through for the single HDMI input. I have another AVR in my living room (Yahama HTR-5990) which allows any inputs (analog or digital) to be sent out through the single HDMI cable. On this unit, all the video...

successor to the legendary xr55!
 
...what it has that the xr55 does not: HDMI, dual-amping of front mains now available during 5.1 playback, one extra set of component inputs, and all-channel stereo (called "party mode" on other receivers).Otherwise the internal components are identical, so expect similar performance---in other words, outstanding SQ when matched with the right speakers, blows away all other receivers under five hundred bucks and most under a thousand. If you don't have a burning need for the extras ...

Long Term Durability--Panasonic Digital has it in spades...!
 
This review is not for this new particular model; but is instead a testimonial for Panasonic digital receivers overall. I bought one of the first all digital units Panasonic produced, 4 years ago (SA-XR45). I was at once impressed with the incredible increase in sound quality from my previous Kenwood analog receiver. Going all digital was one of the best things I ever did to upgrade my sound system--from DVD's in surround to CD's over my ancient and wonderful Sansui speakers.My unit ...
