Very Nice Quality Receiver

By SBonaccorsi

from Philadelphia, PA

Verified Buyer
Site Member

Pros

  • Great sound
  • Has IPOD direct inputs
  • Is Airplay Ready
  • Looks professional
  • Multiple audio in options
  • Multiple HDMI inputs
  • Multiple speaker options

Cons

  • Manual is on CD disk only

Best Uses

  • Home Theater Sound System
  • Music and radio

This is a very nice amplifier/receiver and is high quality. Since it is high quality, there are a lot of feautures and you have to read the operations manual. If you read the manual and learn the features, it will work well and sound great. I have had no problems with it and the features all work flawlessly, The only disappointment is the fact that there is no comprehensive hard copy of the manual in the box. A comprehensive manual is provided on a disk. It's not a major issue obviously if you have a computer close by. If you don't have access to a computer, it will be difficult to learn all of the features. My guess is, if you are buying this kind of equipment, you probably have a computer as well.
