Anyone actually using it would have to rate it excellent for the money, I would think anyways.
One negative for many on it would be no Pre-Outs..... Pretty darn powerful though, especially if your setting your speakers to small.
You have to give up some thing, for all the other capabilities of the thing, at this sort of price point. I'm a little old school. I really like the thing is decently heavy.
Not that weight is the end all, be all assessment of equipment. But, the weight felt old school type heavy to me, I had a better perception of the 140watt per channel spec.
even though I admit, a perception built mainly from illogic.
My first real budget system after coming from much higher end setups over the past 3 to 4 decades.
Thank you for the Reply and yes, I am going to go and Order this from Amazon, along with a Polk PSW10 Subwoofer and Polk CS10 Center Speaker!!!
However, I did Read on Amazon some recent Reviews, stating that this Receiver doesn't last long and Shuts itself Off, so is yours fine and all??
I'm Worried, because this will be On almost ALL THE TIME, lol, Heck, my Sharp Aquos is On 24/7, even while I'm Sleeping, because I have a Brain Tumor and need the Sound and all to Sleep well, honestly, I can't believe my HDTV hasn't Died yet, but it's just as Good as ever, GREAT actually, in fact, the Picture has gotten Better with Age, lol, but that's mainly due to my PS3...
I have an XBox 360 S as well, but I don't like to Talk about it, lol.
Like I said, I already have a really GREAT Pair of Pioneer Bookshelf Speakers, but the Satellites I have left over from my other Pioneer, say on the back not to use with any other Receiver, which I have never seen or heard of before, so I am a little Concerned now, because I can't Afford any more Speakers??
Also, yeah I am Disappointed about the no Pre-Outs, because I can't Hook Up my Equalizer, but honestly, I only kept it to Watch the Display, lol, yeah, Stupid I know, but I like Spectrum Analyzer's, Blame that on Knight Rider, lol, but I have a Spectrum in my Hot Rod, a K.I.T.T. Scanner as well behind the Grille, lol, I dunno, I just like those kinda things, but I guess I can just Connect the EQ to my HDTV then and to my Pioneer CD Changer, that will work I suppose...
