Bottom Line:   
I've owned this amp for a while and I'd say that for the price it's superb. My main criticism is of the bass control on large speakers. Admittedly I'm pushing it a bit but I've got Mirage M1's (huge bipolar speakers) and the bass is all over the place very flabby. The bass and treble controls are crap and anyone using this in stereo should stick to direct mode. I've been driving the amp with a Pioneer 717, which is a great match. It gives a very clean sound and great imaging. Make sure you use full range speakers at the front and back, as the amp will make use of them. Also make sure your centre speaker has a fair bit of bass or it'll show up. So highly recommended as long as you're not driving really big speakers. Mind you it's got pre-outs so you can drive separate power amps. The sound on the whole is typical Pioneer (I've owned lots of their stuff) very clean in the treble and midrange, some people may call this bright but it's not, it just requires decent speakers. I use Chord cables, which are a superb match (odyssey 17 pounds per metre) but if you've got a bright sound already don't use this.

Bottom Line:   
The amp was very good value when I purchased it and iam still pleased with it now. The sound from it has a wonderful midrange for music but must be partnered with bass heavy speakers or a subwoofer for best effect.

The surround sound expierience is superb although for most DD movies I prefer not to have the THX mode enabled. The built in RF demodulator is a god send being an owner of an old laserdisc player.

The main criticism of this amp by many people is the lack of a six channel input thus limiting upgrades but this can be worked around. Six channel upgrade kits for this amp are available for about 360 allowing the use of DTS and MPEG decoders.

These are very small complaints though for a very well built and engineered amplifier which only cost £600.

Sweet music to my ears, even though this amplifier works best with Dolby Digital.

I've had this product for about three months now, and I really was impressed of how good it sounded. As I've already said it works best with movies made in Dolby Digital, but if you turn the THX-Mode of when listening to music, it works fine there to.

Of course I've connected a subwoofer(ASW 2000) to the pre-out, and you can set the low-pass way higher,actually to the full, without getting excaggerated noises and so on.

Oh, almost forgot: The amplifier has a interface on your TV-screen, which makes it easier to use.

Bottom Line:   
Coupled with the Pioneer 717 DVD player the home theatre experience is terrific. I think its a bit sneaky though rating it as 100w per channel into 6ohms when the convention is 8ohms. This is a minor criticism of an otherwise class act.
