BEST RECEIVER VALUE OUT THERE!
Pros: * Top Build Quality 5/5 * Great Sound Quailty 5/5 * Tweaker's Receiver 5/5 * Very good Network feature 4/5 * good remote 4/5
Cons: * NETWORK NAVIGATION GUI * POOR MANUAL (ON CD) HARD COPY COST $10.00 * POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
Overall Review: I also own a Denon AVR- 3311CI ....THIS RECEIVER IS EQUAL TO DENON IN SOUND QUAILITY, better in build quailty. Denon has a better navigation GUI, but buggy software the freezes and the unit must be unplugged and restarted. For $699.99 it the best value out there>
Pros: Great Sounding, quality built, feature galore, Value for the money. Fantastic deal from Newegg for $560 brand new! 30% off $799 (they sold in one day)
Cons: GUI with too small a writing, not enough info stream music, "stripped down" version of Audyssey Multeq XT32. Denon has full version with more options
Overall Review: Receiver arrived with 8 inch hole in side of box plus other damage to the box. The side of the receiver was completely visible. My luck was holding...no damage and the receiver seems fine to boot.
Pros: Smooth & Balanced for its size. good bass. The sound blends perfectly with my Polk 70s II fronts. Great Price too.
Cons: nothing that's important
Overall Review: Many will claim that is speaker and the Monitor 75T above this one lacks bass. These Polk speaks have very good bass. what many fail to understand and speakers is that they require good quality speaker wire 14-12AWG, which carries a proper signal for enhanced bass without a subwoofer. A good sub is often needed for movies but not music. 98 % of music does not have enough bass for a sub to kick in....but some will boost the bass anyway using a subwoofer
