Bottom Line:   
Ive bought this receiver when circuit city was still around and had layaway. I was still in high school. Then I came to make a payment and the price had droppped to 199.99. Brought it home that night. Have enjoyed it ever since. Loved the fact that it could power a sub. I ended up overloading it at some point and blew out the surround sound and 3 stereo option. Could only listen in stereo for the longest time. Then I finally had the money and speakers warrant a surround sound set up and had the receiver fixed. Also bought the Technics dts/dolby digital processor on ebay for a low price. Have been enjoying digital surround for a few years. Its true that you hear the hiss at low volumes and it is fairly quiet at low volumes. When you crank it up, it can play really loud, but then it will start to distort or clip fairly quickly. My sister and nephew always enjoy watching movies with this receiver because it shakes the ground and plays loud. Highly recommended!!

Por que no una revision en español. Acerca del hiss que todos comentan, si es cierto si se escucha pero es casi imperceptible hay que acercar la oreja, pero vaya si esta ahi, De que funciona caliente, tambien es cierto vamos a ver cuanto me dura aca en Mexico. De que a bajos volumenes no se escucha tan bien , no se mucho pero a lo mejor le falta loudness. pero vaya a alto volumen o vaya no tan alto digamos 1/3 y de ahi en adelante si se escucha bastante bien. Sobre todo con ese control del subwwofer que trae, a mi la verdad no me decepciono,todo lo contrario.. Los teatros a quien le sirven bueno a mi no mi Ipod trae un monton. La luz azul bien chingona (perdon).

Bottom Line:   
The Technics SA AX-6 is by far the best home theater receiver I had ever owned. It ended up getting stolen from my home, and well, I miss it dearly. I have spent the past 10 or so years trying to find something else that would replace it and I have had no luck. I only wish that I could buy another.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted one of these recievers based on experience using one that a friend previously owned. I managed to get the high bid on one at eBay. When I got the unit, I immediately started having problems with it overloading and not turning the speaker outputs on, and when it did run, it ran very hot at low volumes. I tinkered with the unit and traced the problems to a cold solder joint on the -14v regulator. I resoldered the joint and my overload and turn-on problems were gone. The cooling system is horribly engineered, the fan turns on when the output reaches a certain level. I bridged the transistor on the fan and installed a temperature senesitive one that turns on when the unit turns on and varies with the TEMPERATURE and not the volume. The unit runs cool an any volume now. I am NOW very satisfied with the unit, but I can't say the same about the stock one. The power output is decent, it sounds alot better than my Sony STR-D350z, which had discrete output stages.
