Seems like a decent amp nothjing special , I read 1 review and it was like 2 stars not good. I could not find if it would do 7.1. or not. I would say no because you can buy a top brand hi-quality a/v/ amp for around $250 You would be getting a warrenty and would output 7.1. and I just added 2 rear speakers on the bavk wall , set my Denon to 7.1. and I love it 360 degrees sound field knocks your socks off , If you do buy it $50,00 max and that might be a waste of money steweeee
My Marantz SR5200 is giving me problems and I just came across a Sony DA50ES for considerably less than I was planning to spend on something new to hold me over until the "new" 7.1 receivers show up. Assuming it's in good condition, and barring the usual used-gear advice, is there anything I should know about this particular model? Like it explodes, ruins speakers, gives off sterilizing amounts of electromagnetic radiation, etc....
