Bottom Line:   
Kenwood I've score big with their Sovereign series, they're now in the big league in A/V receiver. The strench is the ratio quality/price. Quality is excellent, but it doesn't fit the price. It should cost 1000 or 1500$ not 650$. I'm very impressed with the clarity of the sound. I've always bought Kenwood products instead of Sony, JVC, Pionneer, Technics; the so called Hi-Fi brands... But now, Sovereign makes me a buyer instead od Onkyo, Denon, Harman-Kardon...

Bottom Line:   
I think this receiver is great. Good sound and I didn't experience the problems with the noise in the speakers. Easy to follow setup instructinos, especially with the supplement supplied by Crutchfiled.

i had a diffferent problem than the last 2 guys i had the amp shut off when i was watching the tv through it. i went to the place i got it and the dude selling it asked if i had the "shutting off " problem and i of course said yes. i also was experiancing the same static through the right speaker like the last 2 guys said. i tried to contact kenwood about it and they blew me off. anyway i got the chip installed for free and it has cured all the problems i was haveing. email me for more info if you have the same problem and need help. now i dont hate the amp as much as i did considering the price it was.

I had the same problem as Greg C, but I didn't read his review until after I purchased the unit. Now I'm looking at getting my money back. I wouldn't recommend this unit if you are picky about your sound. This defect is truly disappointing and annoying!
