Price Range: $137.95 - $199.99
It's 5.1 and not 6.1.
It weights 19.5 lbs (not heavy at all).
THD is rated at 0.8% and not 0.08%
Power is not rated with all channels at the same time.

The above is typical of the price range. Nothing to get excited about but better than HTIB gear.

But I've never heard it. My brother bought one recently as a video switch and had to return it because he made a mistake and it didn't have enough inputs. He got the Panasonic SAHE75K which is in the same price and quality range. You might want to look at it too.

In this price range I would look at the Onkyo 501 refurbished from J&R Music World for $169.88. Comes with a 90 warranty which isn't great but for the money hard to beat.

Now that you mention it elitefan, that is a good point.
But how about the harman/kardon AVR 125, factory-refurbished for $179 at (with free shipping)? Try to get 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for less than that! ;-)

You have come up with another good alternative. Both much better than the JVC IMO. I think I would prefer the H/K but either is good for such little money.

Hey, that's what we're here for! :-)

I'm very thankful for the help I received here the last two weeks leading to my h/k order yesterday, so I'm glad to give something back. (It's a similar community spirit than found in free software development, e.g. linux)

Let me tell you a secret: you can always tell a crummy receiver when it specifies its frequency response between 40 and 20,000 Hz. Any quality receiver with a half-way decent output stage will do 20-20,000 Hz. It doesn't matter whether you have speakers that go that low or not. Whenever I see the frequency response begin at 40, I know it's junk because they have used crummy parts to build it.
