Awesome Deal
 
I decided to get this receiver after reading rave reviews from audiophiles. I have never witnessed so much love for a $200 receiver. I remained skeptical even when UPS dropped off the box. The Panasonic weighed nothing compared to your typical 50+ pounder analog receivers. Once I hooked everything up, I was pretty amazed at the sound quality. Movies and music sounds came through clean and clear.You really can't complain about a receiver that delivers this much quality for such little money. Peop...

Excellent sound, great price
 
I purchased the Panasonic SA-XR55K to replace a Sony STR-DA4ES. I used a digital optical signal from a Sony DVD changer and a digital coaxial signal from a cable box for the sound sources. The Panasonic is powering a set of Athena Micra 6 speakers.I wanted to evaluate the new digital amplification in the Panasonic. I watched a few DVDs, listened to some CDs and watched both standard definition and high-definition TV. While the Panasonic doesn't have all the features the Sony has, the sound q...

In a few years these amps will be the future of audio
 
If you have searched for the review of this receiver, you must have noticed that there are lot of very polarised views. People have loved the clarity of the amp and have hated it. I used this receiver for last one month and found it quite upto the task. But, will it be my primary audio amplifier ? NO.All of below mentioned observations were compared against NAD T743 receiver, CA 640A stereo integrated and NAD 7175 PE stereo receiver. Speakers used were Paradigm Monitor 11 and Wharfedale Diamond ...

STUNNING little thing!
 
(The following is from my review on the ecoustics.com forum but you can also do a search for this model at the much bigger avsforum.com to read the massively positive feedback this receiver has won.)Initial impressions:1. I'd be lying if I said the Panny were as warm as my Marantz 5400 or NAD separates, but on the other hand I didn't find it "harsh," "cold," "flat," "lifelessly analytical" etc. as many anti-pure-digital audio folk have claimed. "Precise" and "neutral" would be how I'd describe i...

Love It!
 
This little beauty has unbelievable connectivity, plenty of power and sounds fantastic. There is a definate learning curve involved as it does so many things and has so many different features and filters that aren't evident from the face of the unit, and should you ever lose that remote you are in trouble. Old guys like me may find it initially bewildering but it is very much worth the time given the eventual result. Given the surprisingly low price I would have to rate this one my best purchas...

The next refinement in digital receivers
 
This is an impressive home theater receiver for the price. The digital amplifiers by TI contained within are a 3rd generation improvement, and they just keep getting better. For once, the specs for this unit are actually conservative. It is rated for 6 to 8 ohm speakers, however, I am using 4 Magnapan speakers.. all 4 ohms and a difficult load and they sound excellent with this unit.The Dolby Pro Logic IIx feature is superb and, with careful tweaking, makes 2 channel CDs sound convincingly like ...

Great for the price.
 
I used Panasonic HT05 modal before, It worked great. But it has a 35watts limits!. This one functions just like HT05 with more power, My kids screamed when I went to 2/3 of the volume!, I feel filled now!. Unlike the other reviewer, I love the remote control. That is one of the reasons I wanted to go with Panasonic. You can control your Sub-Woofer level with this remote(I use Yamaha Sub), it works with my TV, VCR, audio system and DVD player.Panasonic could have done a better work on their MULTI...

Awesome! Using Ascend 340's for LCR and Ascend 170's for rears...
 
When I changed out my Yamaha reciever for the panny I immed noticed a diff.CLEAN SOUND. no hiss. It is just there! In a wierd way it was like going from records to cd's but not that dramatic. I thought for sure I would go back to my more expensive Yamaha.... but i did not! I sold it. Def worth the $. I like it that it does not have a ton of features... but has excellent sound. I am using the XR-55 with Ascends all around... 340's across the front and 170's for rear surround and Ascend 200's for ...

Home Theater Solution
 
The reviews sounded too good to be true. The reviews are right on. This system is perfect for home theater. I have the latest Panasonic plasma. This receiver is the perfect compliment. Here is why...I could only start with at 2.1 set up - L/C/R and no sub woofer. Great digital sound effects with a one button switch to stereo for easy comparison.Tons of input/output connectors. Unless you need HDMI, the available connectors are perfect. The speaker connectors are screw down/banana plug ty...

Great value,good sound, ample power for small to mid sized rooms.
 
I was looking for something with a lower crossover (100Hz) for bass than my Pioneer Vsx-d814k(which I am now selling :) ). I had been looking at the Sa-xr50 & 70 at the begiining of last year and was impressed with the reviews, but ended up with the Pioneer and two AudioSource Amps.I looked up the digital receivers again, found they had a new model, and came across many good reviews of the XR55s, and it has a low crossover at 80Hz, what I was looking for!I deceide to give it a try even though a ...
