  • Technics SA-DX950 A/V Surround-Sound Receiver -- Can I Pay for it with Food Stamps?

    Jan 20, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Covers all the basic home-theater surround modes, great price.
    Cons: Lightly-built, not the easiest to operate.

    Summary: Excuse me while I wax nostalgic. Back in the turntable daze (intentionally sic), me and my pals all tried to outdo one another in stereo-buying competitions. For humble children of the lumpen bourgeoisie, the mathematics of ... read more

    Pros: Great sound, lots of options/inputs, remembers settings
    Cons: Gets hot sometimes, small volume drop-offs (see below)

    Summary: I chose this as my first receiver based on its price, reviews, and options. It has plenty of analog inputs as well as three digital (1 coax, 2 optical). It remembers your settings for each mode and lets you assign certain devices to different inputs. I ... read more

  • Sounds Great!! Good $$$

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy set up, great price for $$$, sound is superb
    Cons: Display, better directions, heat

    Summary: Have recently upgraded to this new unit from a DD Philipps. What a difference!! Yes this has more power and DTS capabilities, but I know I'm running good when I can't hear my wife yelling at me from up stairs. Set up was quite easy (and I'm ... read more

  • Good value for the Price

    Jan 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, powerful, good DVD sound.
    Cons: Poor remote control, limited jack set, lack of treble/base control in simulated surround mode.

    Summary: It's pretty hard to beat this CR "best value" receiver for the price (1/3 the price of the competing Onkyo DS696) but be prepared to give up some important features. The DVD/SatelliteTV surround performance is excellent in both digital modes. ... read more

  • High-end features at a very reasonable cost

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sounds great, priced right. Lots of inputs and outputs.
    Cons: No S-Video in/out.

    Summary: I upgraded from an earlier model Technics receiver in order to take advantage of digital audio. Hookup was relatively simple (after running out to the store to buy the cables I needed), and configuration of the receiver took only a few minutes. ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Mid-range price, high-end featureset.
    Cons: Controls and setup a wee bit awkward.

    Summary: Technics has always been one of the best companies to turn to for high-middle-end audio equipment. The SA-DX950 is no exception. Want to hook up a CD player? How about a tape deck? Phonograph? VCR? DVD player? Output from your computer ... read more

  • Value for money

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value for $, ease of use, meets my needs
    Cons: Displays small, hard to read from 15 ft

    Summary: Crunch time, the 30 yr old receiver's tuner had been giving us problems, it also had no remote. Two trips to get it repaired over the last 10 years meant good money thrown after a bad receiver. The Nov.2001 issue of Consumer reports rated ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: High power, great jack pack, Crisp Sound low distortion.
    Cons: Setup,lacks simple features such as clock and sleep timer.

    Summary: The Technics receiver is by far the best unit on the market for under $250. I purchased this unit because of its great features and its outstanding benefits. The unit contains an abundance of inputs and outputs such as s-video, digital out and in, sub ... read more

    Pros: price, price, quality.
    Cons: confusing to set up, crappy remote

    Summary: I had been wanting a surround sound receiver for a few years and finally broke down and got it. Long story short, I got a closeout/ demo from Best Buy for $120. I thought it would be ok for a year or so and as it turns out it has lasted me for about 3 ... read more
