  • Ease of Use:
  • Durability:

Pros:Decent sound, good power, longevity and durability

Cons:JVC quit making the "champagne" color.

...after at least 10 years, maybe 12. My kids broke the volume knob so it spins freely but will still catch and adjust the volume. Sounds decent for a low ender with a good Paradigm setup. Too bad my JVC HR-XVC18B DVD Player/VCR Combo as soured me on JVC (see my review on it...) but 10 years is an eternity for an electronics maker to flush their QC down the drain. This receiver will be with me for years I'm sure...
