    I had previously owned a JVC 801 DD receiver,lots of bells and whistle for the money[​IMG] speaker wise I am using for fronts 2 older Acoustic Research TSW 510 tower's and a M&K 750 for center,rears are some OLD Stark di-poles,they are tanks!![​IMG] anything less then thrown out off a car at 50 MPH probably wouldn't hurt them[​IMG] At first bought an Onkyo 600,a few of you might remember my "panic"posts about 4 OHM speakers etc.So ended up with a HK 520.Before all this I couldn't comprehend how a receiver that just cost more then my JVC would sound any better,it had all the stuff?
    WOW .....I am truly amazed what a really good receiver can do for a system[​IMG] I was on the verge of buying all new speakers,thinking they were the source of my being dissatisfied.Well.....after the HK ,the speaker issue went away[​IMG]
    I wish I could thank everyone individually for all the help on my "newbie"posts,this forum saved me a bunch of unnecessary spending
    Only problem,now I head to this site first when I do Internet,not the drag racing boards[​IMG] Problem,Im not sure if this isn't going to be an even more expensive hobby[​IMG]
    So thanks to everyone who took the time to answer all my "newbie"posts[​IMG]

    Congrats on the 520. I have had mine for a couple of months now, and paired with my Axiom speakers, I am in constant music and home theater happiness. Particularly at these reduced prices, it's a great receiver.

    Welcome to the 520 club Greg! Nice lil' receiver, ain't it?
    I have mine hooked up as a pre/pro feeding a Rotel RMB-1075 amp and things sound even better. BTW, I also have Axiom speakers...interesting[​IMG].
    Good purchase and good luck!

    I think i'll be getting the 520 soon myself, (within the month). the prices are getting low enough that it too good to pass by.

    I've had a Kenwood Vr-507 for almost two years, and its served me well, but i'm ready for an upgrade.
