This budget receiver caught my eye at Crutchfield, can anyone comment on its quality?
100 watts x 2 (stereo) into 8 ohms (40-20,000 Hz) at 0.8% THD — or 100 x 5 in surround modeNotice they state the power specs in stereo at .8% distortion and at 40Hz-20kHz. If they rated it at an acceptable amount of distortion (i.e. .09%)and at 20Hz-20kHz I bet the power rating would be more like 65wpc instead of 100wpc. They're cheating big time.
Also, notice they don't even state the specs for the 100x5 claim!
But then most receivers in this price range do the same thing...even the Kenwoods and Sony's and Pioneers.
In other words...you're really NOT getting 100wpc.
Although they DO have a great looking babe on their home page (jvc.com)...that ought to be worth a few wpc's!
Check out that sweater! Yowsah!
