Doubt it puts out 100 watts a channel
I bought some big speakers for my main system. I removed the KLH-9912's to add them. I bought this receiver to run them in my bedroom. The 9912's , when hooked up to this receiver where stone cold dead.. zero, not a buzz or pop silence. I thought the receiver was defective. The 9912s are exposed to run on 25 to 250 watts. So i took two small Sonys out of the main system, and swapped them for the 9912s, now the main system is a wall of sound and the bedroom system operates well.. nothing exciting.. but the receiver looks great. Ill keep it.

Good cheap receiver
Good cheap receiver, for someone who just needs something that works with a simple 2.1 stereo setup. Would recommend for a computer or desktop setup, or supporting a TV. Lasted 4 1/2 years before blowing. Very simple and easy to use.

Bluetooth is nice
I bought this receiver since I didn't have powered speakers. I wanted to use it with my turntable. As an added bonus, I can bluetooth my phone to it.

This receiver is as described
This receiver is as described. I've had it for 2 months. I like being able to connect my phone via Bluetooth. Has plenty of AM & FM presets.

Very respectable at any price; stellar at $113
I'm kind of a reluctant audiophile. I don't like all the roo-rah and techno-speak associated with high-end audio. But I do like good sound. I purchased this to run with B&W indoor/outdoor speakers I use in the garage, among the motorcycles and with a cigar, sometimes high heat, often high humidity (live in florida). They usually do duty at the back end of a Bryston studio amp (200 w, circa 2000, very tasty), and a Morrison pre-amp, and -- if the source is clean -- you can hear Vladimir Horowitz's chair scuffling as he leans into a piano solo. Or Neil Young tearing it up on Live at Massey Hall. One of the fines live recordings I've ever heard -- look up the backstory. But ya gotta keep changing the CD and, no objection--I understand the theory--, the Bryston/Morrison set up has no tone controls. Just on/off, volume, L/R balance. Why'd I buy this? Because I want to swing through the garage for a couple hours and bluetooth the years of (low quality) music on my iPhone, without having to screw around. I can "plug" the iPhone into the big set up, but, hey, what's the difference? It's lousy quality from the iPhone. It's much better to click through 15,000 plus offerings on your phone, in you garage easy chair, as you like, w/out the hookup hassle. That's where this unit excels. Bt hookup was on par with Anker Sound Core, Bose, and other respectable wireless speakers. The sound was, frankly, a lot more than I expected. Obviously, the B&W speakers have a lot to do with it. But for the folks who suggested maybe this unit is "underpowered" or gives low volume, I don't get that. It's way louder than I need at half volume. At max or near max volumes, the experience is less enjoyable, but the speakers aren't peaking or buzzing. It's all about the bluetooth convenience, but the rest of the unit's details are impressive.
