Good budget stereo receiver
Has all the features I need, including a phono jack, for about $100. You couldn't run a disco with it, but it's more than powerful enough for mature adults to use for both Video (I'm running my big-screen, which has wimpy speakers, through AUX) and Audio. All the performance I need at an exceptional value. With a decent heap antenna it's pulling in the radio stations I want.
Obviously not an audiophile piece at this price, but sounds fine at any volume I want in my home.
Two cautions -- first, it came new without ANY antenna, and the antenna output jack is sort of odd. For most antennae, you'll need a PAL to Coax "F" female to female adapter (about $5 at Radio Shack or equivalent). Second, you should NOT run 4 ohm speakers through this Receiver -- people have been frying them that way. As long as you have 8 ohm speakers (which most speakers anyone interested in this unit would own likely are), it should last long and work fine, according to my research.Read full review...
Good value for the money but it lacks a few features found pricier receiver
This receiver is good value for money but note following things.
Don't drive the receiver too hard or use low impedance speakers as described in the manual. This will cause the thermal switch in the transformer to trip and the unit won't function again.
This receiver doesn't have a tape monitor function so I was unable to use a graphic equalizer with it.
After several hours of operation the unit turns itself off. I haven't recorded how long but it seems to be 5 hours plus.
The receiver uses an F type coaxial connector for the vhf antenna input so I had to use a standard balun so that I could connect my twin lead antenna to it.
All in all it is great unit for the money.Read full review...
These home receivers are the Real thing. Class D is fun to play with. but they are lacking in more than just weight. A true 100 watts a 8 ohm, each channel. Only .5% THD at full power. If you want it to sound like a class D; just let it clip. This are real power, not; bridged at 1 or 2 ohm at 10% THD + noise. ...only turn these at full volume if you want to harm you hearing (please don't do that).Read full review...

The only problem I had was the way it was packed when shipped...was actually surprised it worked...Just a small amount of brown wrapped for this heavy receiver was used and the side of the box was ripped in transit...Bubble Wrap would've been better!!!!! Hopefully it will work for a long time...for now...it is Good!Read full review...

good amp if you know what your doing
Amp would shut off when volume was turned up beyond a low level. I thought it was the amp, but I tested the OHMs on the speakers, and one speaker was near zero, the other at 8 as it should be. Changed out the speakers to speakers tested at 8 ohms, amp works perfectly. The protection circuit in the amp was shutting it off due to the draw from the low ohm speaker.
So dont assume a problem is with the amp -- check out the other components.Read full review...

A good value.
Needed a decent basic receiver to replace a very good Kenwood unit that was losing its tuning capabilities. Price was great. Works quite well. In making the change, lost the capability to handle a third pair of speakers; not a big deal. The one feature that I lost and miss is the switched AC outlet on the back of the unit. This unit makes a noticeable noise when turned on/off. Doesn't knock my socks off but actually pretty well pleased.Read full review...

This is easy to hook up and gives you several options. I like the fact that it has a built in A/B switch for the speakers. It's remote works well. The buttons could be a little bigger. I like it a lot!Read full review...

Works great! Replacing a newer model Sherwood that lasted about a year. I already had one the same model as this one and it has been going strong for years. Like the fact that everything was with it. The manual, antenna and remote! Pretty cool!Read full review...
