Best Home Theater Solution, on a budget!
 
This will go fast. This thing is amazing. For less than $500 you get the quality you'd expect from a $1000+ model. It really brings a new life to not only native 5.1 Movies, but creates new depth and atmosphere to your 2.0 or Mono releases, by use of very refined DSP. For purists concerned about digital processing cluttering the faithfulness of recordings, worry not with this one. The technology is there now, and it outshines many well respected Analog A/V receivers I have owned and used over th...

Nice 3D AV Amplifier
 
I bought this to replace an earlier Sony AV Amplifier that was not 3D capable. The owners manual on this unit was as hard to follow as the unit it replaced but it was still simple to install the amp. The sound quality is excellent but I find I have to crank up the volume setting more than before to get the same amount of actual volume from the speakers. If you have a large TV viewing area you may not be able to get the loudness you are looking for. I have a small house with small rooms and it ha...

This is a very nice AVR indeed, and I won't reiterate the features, advantages, and accolades . . .BUT . . . take it from me here . . . unless you absolutely KNOW that you want the default "Control for HDMI" and "Automatic Standby" functions to operate, save yourself A LOT of frustration and just go into the GUI mode (see the manual), navigate to Settings > HDMI > Ctrl for HDMI . . . and set to OFF. And then navigate to Settings > System > Auto Standby . . . and also set that to STBY OFF.These ...

Disappointing
 
My two previous receivers were from Sony and I was happy with both. All I really needed was additional HDMI inputs and a reasonable amount of power, so this seemed like a good deal. After getting it connected, I decided to return it almost immediately. The deal breakers were: * When switching from a hi-def to a standard-def channel, the picture wouldn't be shown correctly as 4:3. It would be stretched to fill the entire screen. The only way I found to fix this was to call...

It does the job!!
 
What's great about it: It can push my subwoofer with no problem What's not so great: No A/B speaker setup (like really?!) Besides no A/B speaker function, this thing rocks... Just bought an BIC America-12" 430-Watt Powered Subwoofer-V1220 like a week ago... I'm glad I live in a house, because this combo (surround setup, of course) is insane... (The guy sitting in the Maxell logo) andThis product has...

intensive unit
 
My old Sony receiver was an overall better unit and cost about the same. I bought this one because of HDMI ports. Standby mode not so good. No speaker control for inside and outside speakers. Sales persons knew little about receiver, no demonstrator in store to get a feeling for it. I would have purchased something else, perhaps not even in this store. I am disappointed for cost vs features. Store wanted $170.00 to set up. Why, no floor sample to try and no in store service. I have never had to ...

"PROTECT" mode is all that will happen if you buy
 
This system balows!It might be good and work great if only---- .... anyone could get it to work.Have had it plugged in for 2 days out of the box. Yesterday it suddenly went into "Protect" mode after turning it on for a few seconds. I turned off and back on. - Same thing. I unplugged all inputs and outputs. Rest - same thing. I checked all speaker wire to ensure all were positively attached and even checked to ensure all negatives where aligned. Still same thing.I unplugged all speakers - still "...

I bought this and it don,t have no cd you have to download the book. I turn it up all the way and i wasn,t happy , i let the mic calbrate my system, still the sound wasn,t that loud like i like it, so i went into the setting in gui and turn it all up then it sounded better , but still not as loud as i wanted, i would think 140 watt per speaker would shake he widnow but it didn,t at all, I have had 90 watt per speaker that were louder than this , gui is hard to figure out with out book in front o...
