Good sound quality, less features than newer recievers but still stands strong against them. More features than same year models by different companies. Anti blow out features, it either senses the wattage output or senses the heat, but will turn off when heavily strained.

My only gripe with this product is the amount of heat it produces when at 55-70% capacity. For this reason it should be well ventilated and never run at 100% for longer than 10-15 minutes. 100% volume is pretty loud, so I'd doubt anyone would go that high anyways.
