for the SA-XR55

I have had the opportunity to have this receiver in my system after getting some great advice from someone in the industry. Basically he told me that this out does receivers many, many times it's price and he is right.
I cannot believe how good this sounds after it is set up properly. It is not pretty, it is a bit of a pain to set up but if you are interested in an immense amount of detail and loads of clean power this is the ticket. I have not used anything this inexpensive for 20 years and can't believe it!
The only negative thing about it's sound it that if the DVD/CD sounds bad it will sound terrible as everything is revealed warts and all. With a great sounding disc it is pure magic. If you like your gear to sound warm I don’t think this would work out, otherwise it is a fantastic
I have already ordered one after this audition as the value is too great to pass up.

Product Weakness: a little ugly but thats about it
Product Strengths: Value,sound
