Bottom Line:   
For the review below, I think it may be a bit unfair to lower the score so much for no s-video. Yes, no DTS, But if you have an S-video TV (which you would have to have anyway) you can plug the video from the DVD straight to the TV and bypass the receiver. It's not bad for $200. A lot better than others for the price. Usually you get what you pay for. It's not great, but you get a bit more than you paid for with this one.

I brought this just last week.I played around with it and i figure I should of got something better.I took this back just yesterday.First off,I have a DVD player and it is not that good for DVD.Since DVDs are Dolby Digital and with no digital outputs and S-video,you will be force to upgrade in the next years to come.I would go Sony because they seem to offer lots of features and the important part it has is COOL REMOTES.OH YEAH!!

Bottom Line:   
I like this product a lot. The sound is very clean, and, like the other reviews have mentioned, you really can't beat it for $200. I am upgrading to a better receiver now, but this one has served me well. I recommend it. I was fortunate enough to get a 3690 remote with my system because the store couldn't find a 3680 one, so I count myself lucky in that area. All in all, a very good budget receiver.
