Bottom Line:   
I have owned one of these since 1997. I bought it brand new along with a Pioneer 35 disc CD player and a set of Bose 301 (v3). All of them are still going strong.

I bought this receiver on a limited budget back in 1997 and it has had up all these years. I never expected that. It's a good product. Plenty of power and used these things can be had for less ess than $40.00.

SX 255R I paid 50 nz dollars for it in 2013 cleaned outside and inside like new.Bass up half way and treble and sounds awesome! have two old 90s Jvc 3 way speakers on and it pumps loud.Be 20 year old amp n 2016 and bet it will go for another 20 unlike the amps of today poor quality and break down so I went back in time when sound quality was great and also when music was just about to get bad.

All of you who think this has no bass or muddied high notes either have a defective unit, improperly wired speakers, or junk speakers. I have hooked mine up to cheap rca brand speakers all the way up to vintage 15 inch fisher speakers and the high notes are clear, sharp and qualify for hearing damage unless a large room is used. The super bass will rattle small items off the shelves. Learn how to properly hook up and use good speakers and there is no way you could be disappointed with this unless you are used to listening to a dj system.

It turns on but the volume doesn't turn up like before,if I turn the knob all the way up you'll hear it but only if your next to it. Does anyone have any idea of what it could be?

Honestly, how can anyone speak of the "quality" of the sound and include only the receiver's ability? The reciever puts out plenty of power, much more than I'll use. 100 watts per channel is more than enough to rock my BOSE 201 series IV speakers. the remaining channels definitely put some thump into my mtx thunder 7500 12"s. If you want good bass response.. use subwoofers.. that's my conclusion anyway. the superbass is usually always on as it brings the entire range of sound to a warmer tone in general. theres plenty of ways to hook your components up. I've experienced a few problems with electrical noise from large power supplies, but if you isolate the unit a few feet from computers and such, the sound is amazingly clear. no hum or buzzing as long as it's far enough away or your components are shielded. the remote is a remote, that's it. you can control your other components with it and adjust the volume and superbass. nothing more. Obviously there are much better units out there and obviously there are worse, that will be the case with basically anything on the planet you wish to purchase. For me, for free, with BOSE speakers, this unit completely rocks.
