If you are looking for a medium-end receiver for about $400, then HTR-5660 is a very good candidate.
Dolby digital 6.1, DTS 6.1, 24 programs, 4 re-assignable digital audio inputs, 5 A/V inputs, 2 component input switching, low THD and high quality connectors.
Features that are low-end or missing:
No phono (turntable) input
No THX certification
No on-screen display
No learning remote
I needed a A/V receiver to component switch from DVD (1) and the HDTV receiver (2) to the HDTV monitor. So I used the component inputs and the optical audio inputs the two HDTV input set. Then I connected the VCR (3), my notebook audio/video out (4) and cable TV box (5). 5 input sources are successfully connected to the HTR-5660.
Then I connected two main speakers, the center, two rear speakers and the sub-woofer to the receiver using professional banana jacks. Everything works as it should.
I recommend this receiver as a low-cost receiver which does the job perfectly.
