JVC is certainly not the most prestigious brand of audio equipment on the planet, but I don't think it necessarily gets the respect it deserves, either. I've had this receiver for more than 20 years, bought it new in 1994 for around $125 on sale. It's never given a minute's trouble in all that time except the FM tuner got to where it wouldn't go below about 98MHz, but then it stayed unplugged for a while when I moved and suddenly it was all better. Its 80 watts of power (20 per channel with four speakers connected) is relatively clean and distortion-free unless I turn on the simulated surround sound, which is kind of a joke as it just introduces unnecessary distortion. I use this receiver for music as well as the audio for my TV set. It's not 5.1 Dolby, but it's much richer than that of the TV speakers and it doesn't have the obnoxious, exaggerated rumble of a subwoofer. I liked this receiver well enough that over the next few years, I added a JVC CD changer and dual-well cassette deck to round out my system and have been generally pleased with the whole lot.
