  • Receiver fits well in a tight space and adds 4K
    Verified BuyerReviewed by GT0530 - August 8, 2019

    I previously had an older 5 disc DVD Samsung receiver, but it was showing its age, and I wanted to be able to have something that would support ARC from the TV back to the receiver (to satisfy others in the household who don't want to listen to the receiver to watch TV). This works really well in handling both the ARC, and I moved an Apple TV 4K as an input into the receiver, and it handles it just fine. I used the old speakers (3 Ohm) with the receiver even though it recommends 4-8 Ohm speakers. The configuration process does take about 10-15 minutes, but it sounds good. I had to turn down the subwoofer settings, but otherwise it works great. Airplay works well, and my Google Home Mini sees it as well. There may be more reasonably priced receivers, but for my needs, it does what I need it to do.

  • Purchased for low profile!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MickyFig - April 20, 2019

    This receiver was purchased because I needed something with a low profile in a 5.1 system & Network-Ready 4K Ultra HD and 3D Pass-Through HDR Compatible! This was the ONLY thing I could find...that was affordable to me. It does all that I need with great sound and PLENTY enough volume. No regrets, or regerts, here.

  • Very poor quality
    Reviewed by musiclover - September 30, 2017

    It worked fine at first. Within less than a month, problems appear from time to time. The remote control app couldn't find the receiver when all network connections were fine. Finally, one of the front speaker output stops having any sound. I have used many receivers in the past 40+ years and this is the worst one.
