I bought this to replace my old 1993 era model yamaha rx-v490 garage receiver 70 wpc. , as it was getting tired. I needed (wanted) at least 100 per channel to power garage speakers and projects etc. And this was in my allowable budget!!.... So I noticed right away it was lighter than most any similar receiver I had owned in past , and noticed cheesy speaker terminals , at this point feeling a little apprehensive, I proceeded with installation , trying to keep in mind that Crutchfield had never steered me wrong before, plus some of the reviews helped sell me on it. I plugged in my source turned on and rotated volume....I was quite blown away that it sounded as clear as it did starting out from a flat bass/treble setting, also it had the power to move my speakers cleanly at that!!. They are 4-way set up (2-12"woofers wired in series ,mid , and a horn tweeter in a 2.5ish cu ft. Encloser) anyways.... Than so I added my eq in series as there is no tape loop, which also spiced up the input signal a bit. I played various audio test stuff, jazz, orchestra, big band, clean sounding rock albums etc. I was floored how this performed for this price point. I should add, I also connected my old realistic watt meter, not sure of accuracy, but between the woofers moving and the ease of hitting the 100 watt led on meter with room on volume to spare I'm pretty sure I can say the 100-wpc is legit, and its clean too!!! I add this in review because a lot of watt ratings are fantasy!!
Pros: Good clean power, nice tuner & of course bluetooth!!!
Cons: No tape moniter loop, cheesy speaker terminals. But for this price who cares!!
