“Still running after 30 years. The turntable channel finally got fuzzy about 5 years ago. Powerful enough for large speakers.” --jefferis
“First off I would like to point out that this receiver came with a home theater in a box kit that included a 6.1 speaker setup which explains the high purchase price for this mid range receiver. This receiver features 6.1 discrete and matrix modes, digital and analog surround inputs, 24 dsp presets, 2 switched AC outlets, A/B switch, and a composite/ component video switcher. The best features...” --ikkuranus
“When I purchased my AVR 335, the only sound system I had was a set of Logitech z5300e PC speakers that was hacked together using a menagerie of cables, and 2 manual switch boxes so I could use them with my Xbox (original and 360), PS2, PC, Wii, TV, and CD changer. The first switch box was composite video and s-video only, and the second one was had component video. When I wanted to switch the...” --Jason Hutchinson
“I purchased a refurbished unit from the Harmon Kardon store on Ebay. That was probably a good thing as these receivers had a defect with the HDMI boards. There was a service bulletin out for it and all the refurbished units after a certain date had it. The I purchased is good to go.

“Bought this on a recommendation from the sales clerk at the store I was buying my TV from. He said a lot of manufacturers are cramming too much stuff in their receivers and that sound quality suffers as a result, so his recommendations were Denon, or Yamaha. PLIIz was number one on my feature list, and he said "Yep, they have it, they call it Presence". Got it home and got it all set up. ...” --Polaris75
“I bought this receiver to replace a tired old Sony in my TV room. It was not intended to be a home theater receiver as I already have one of those downstairs. This one seemed to have all the features I needed at a good price. This receiver far surpassed my expectations. I owe most of it to the YPAO setup program. Could not be much easier. Just plug in the microphone, get out of the way...” --golfster
