    Best Home Theater Solution, on a budget!


    from Undisclosed

    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 the years. You have plenty of inputs and outputs for every convenience… including HDMI (with device chain and talk-back), Component Video, Composite Video, Optical Toslink and Coaxial RCA for Audio, Standard Analog Stereo RCA Left & Right for Audio. It's incredible. And, it comes with an iPod/iPhone dock, so you're fully covered! :) I love mine. Look nowhere else!

    • No spotify

    Best Uses

      I bought this as my surround sounds for my new sony 55 inch tv. Its small but sounded like i am in the movies. Mostly people doesnt know how to setup correctly but with the right speakers, gauge and speakers position this one will beat other high end products. At 55% volume the sounds is pounding like a beast. Will purchase again.
