5 out of 5 eggsWhat a deal!

Pros: Auto speaker setup with included Mic
Lightweight
Tons of inputs for anything you would want
Quality definition

Cons: -No on-screen menu
-Initial Setup can be a little confusing

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my entry-level receiver from Onkyo. I was a little nervous about the purchase because of the 500 dollar "instant savings". The product arrived, I switched out the receiver, then found out what I was missing. The sound definition is great. If you are looking to upgrade your entry level receiver, this is the deal to jump on.

4 out of 5 eggsworth it @ 299

Pros: Sound definition I haven't had before, nice punch,stays cool,digital amp=very light but not a disadvantage

Cons: Defititely patience trying for inital set-up,rated for 130 per ch but seems less, no upvert to 1080,but tv has more than enough inputs.

Other Thoughts: To me, definitely worth it for the price. Please whatever you do, for a quality experience...do not skimp/cheap out for your new cables. Neighbor asked if I was opening up a dance club...lol

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Bargain!

Pros: I've gone through quite a few A/V receivers, but none stuck out like this one. Packed with useful features. Not a bunch of useless options that will never get used, full HD surround, a cable connecting layout in the back of the unit that couldn't have been thought out any better. Binding post/ banana speaker connectors for ALL channels, not cheap spring clips. Everything's layed out perfectly and placed neatly and easy to find and connect. The amps sound wonderful and all of my speakers blend seamlessly with this receiver. 2 channel music sounds superb. With the HD surround, I can finally enjoy my blu-rays the way they were meant to be heard.

Cons: Absolutely none!

Other Thoughts: Despite some snobbish, so-called professional reviews out there, don't let them deter you from purchasing this fine piece of audio equipment. Who care about not being able to upscale component video signals anyway? Everything is basically using HDMI nowadays. It also doesn't have an on-screen menu. So what! All options in setup can be clearly changed on the receivers display. All in all, this is a fine piece of audio equipment that's worth every penny and should not be passed up. It's not flashy or gaudy, just plain, clean and simple, and does everything it's supposed to do. And Neweggs always speedy service got it here in three days. I couldn't be happier.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat bargain, but not worth the full price

Pros: Cost. Cost. Cost again. Severely marked down, and bottom of the top tier of receiver/amp. The main inputs have specific menu buttons for you Harmony remote people. The more peripheral inputs (radio, cd, etc.) do not appear to. Runs very cool. The rear cooling fan is completely silent. Comes with a mic and an auto-setup feature which plays calibration sounds from the various speakers and fine-tunes your sound settings accordingly. Very nice feature for the non-audiophile people.

Cons: Does not upconvert Component/RCA inputs to HDMI out. Need a second output for components -- not sure if you would need a third for RCA. This is a big deal if you're running wires in the wall. Things get tight really fast.

Other Thoughts: $800 for this is too much, in my humble opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing deal

Pros: all the feature of a $800 receiver for $300 comes HDMI 1.3 and DTS-HD, MA, DD True, etc

Cons: doesn't upscale to 1080p or even upscale at all. also doesn't support component to hdmi conversion.

Other Thoughts: i really like how i can not turn on the receiver and hdmi will pass through, but only for hdmi which is no good for everything else.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs very cool, I'm able to keep it in a closed entertainment center cabinet with no concerns with over heating. I didn't even think about this until AFTER purchasing the unit but that alone would have made me want to buy this. Despite all the reviews about it being hard to use I've had no trouble setting up the system though I admittedly am not an audiophile. I figured for $299 this thing had to be a bargain and I think I was right.

Cons: None so far
