Has anyone seen or heard one of these in person? Tascam mostly makes professional audio equipment that would have little use in a theater, but it looks like they have started making receivers. The PA-R100 is the 5.2 receiver with preamp outs ($700) and the PA-R200 is the 7.2 version ($800).

Looks promising and would be interested to see what others think. Can't find reviews anywhere.

Tascam is part of Teac which was purchased by Gibson...
Gibson also owns a % of Onkyo..
Those units are designed/built by the Onkyo/Integra Malaysia factory...

They should be solid products, can't comment further without doing more indepth evaluation...

Just my $0.02... šŸ‘šŸ˜‰

That would explain the references to Onkyo's RI and RIHD in the owners manual.

I own a number of TASCAM audio devices. I like the brand a lot. If it's gong to be built by Onkyo, I hope the QC would not be as bad.

Wow...just stumbled upon this thread...I had no idea TASCAM was doing rebranded Onkyo AVRs! Yes, TASCAM is the professional division of TEAC, but I also didn't know they are now associated with Gibson, who recently partnered with Onkyo (this business madness has to stop -- whether it's electronics, casinos or cars; we can't keep track of who owns who anymore!)...

I like TASCAM's products, as I own one of their professional CD recorders which sits in my two-channel stack -- and this receiver looks JUST like a rebranded Onkyo 600-series of current vintage...right down to the faceplate buttons and volume knob...weird to see it, actually, glowing with the trademark TASCAM orange display...

But one has to ask...what is the point of this? What kind of application can this be used towards -- is it a kind of Integra-level product that can be rack-mounted in a more "professional" setup? It kind of begs the question...why not just buy the Onkyo or upscale cousin Integ:cool:ra?

Does anyone else who has one of these know if the RI remote control jack can be plugged into a Niles repeater so you can control the receiver via wall mount ir?

The website now indicates this receiver has been discontinued; does anyone have any info on that? Has it been discontinued already?

I just bought the receiver off Ebay new in the box for $188 plus $19 shipping.
One of the best deals all around - they still have some.

It is a good one - the sound is clean - the picture is good

Takes a little time to get use to the menu - once you get a handle of it, it is nice

I am a fan of the receiver orange display window - and the on screen volume level display.

For one on a tight budget, or who needs a second receiver - this should be put on a short list

I replaced the Denon 791 receiver with it - and I am happy
