Bottom Line:   
I bought this as my budget entry-level 5.1 system after test-driving a friend's model for a full month. During this time I had ample time to get to know the variety of inputs/outputs and general flexibility of the system (all the time concerned with sound quality, thanks to 'What Fi-Fi' magazine).

I would recommend this as a cheap 5.1 system to anyone looking for a quality receiver for next-to-no money. But in reality it would save you in the long run if you dug deeper and went for a more xpensive option if you are in a settled environment for a long-haul.

Get a LONG full warranty!
I didn't, and now 3 years later the power-supply or something internal is trashed, and I'm looking for another Receiver (+long Warranty)!! ;b

Bottom Line:   
The sound is a little bit high pitched. Worked fine for two years. Power supply died and now anything works.

Bottom Line:   
I have had absolutely no problems with this receiver. It puts out a perfect amount of power to whichever speakers I connect to it. The DSP feature works fantastically. Don't hold back on purchase.

Bottom Line:   
This receiver sounds pretty good when it is connected to sensitive speakers , otherwise it lacks the damping factor which is nececessary for driving speakers with a high impedance . The sound is OK for its price level with a bit emphasis on the high frequency (treble) . I have to use an external equalizer (I have an excellent Denon EQ)in order to compensate for the medium frequencies)which are somehow missing .
Othewise the sound is transparent with enough details from music or video stuff , and the sounfield is adequate for a small or even an average room .
