Bottom Line:   
I have used it for over 10 years now and it still pumps out big power! I use a cord that has two speaker plugs to headphone jack. I run headphone through my tv, iPhone, mp3, and more. The only unit that I gotta get up to turn on and off is my woofer. The best ss stereo that I've ever owned! It's kinda old now but still looks and sounds brand new. I will use it until it breaks, so that could be past a lifetime.

Bottom Line:   
Very good receiver for the money. Good deal. I had this for seven years and it never shut it shelf down, even when i pushed it hard. The ploblem though with this receiver is that it does not have strong transformer and output power... But for the money it costs, it gives more...

Bottom Line:   
Pretty nice amp, Yet weak at surround strengths, yet gives out lots of bass for fron speakers. I dont tend to use the 2 channel Prologic mode anymoe, once I got the Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 1394, I just use the 5.1 input. IT DOESNT SOUND FLAT!!!! It sounds great, with the EAX effects and the bass way up high. Could have used a Dolby Digital Decoder, though I have one on my Audigy soundcard. If you are looking for a low price Name brand 5.1 amp, this is the one.

This is one of the best receivers ever. I have a bose acustamass 7 home thature system hooked up to it and it is great. Lots of bass out of the bass module. Sounds great. I dont know if its the reciever of just the bose speakers.
