Got this last week and hooked it up to my BR1 parts express speakers I built and everything sounds full to my ears. And loud!... all the way up the dB levels. Hooked up to cable TV and with only 2 channels running on direct mode no need for center speaker. The direct mode is key since it shuts off most of the digital filters for super bass etc. Same for my Technics SL-D2 turntable. Crazy for $50 with a set of basic Klipsch Kg5 speakers.

This receiver may not have HDMI ports, but the audio performance is excellent. I use it to power two Tannoy D500s, two Advent Legacys, and two Energy rear speakers... and the Energy front speaker. The AV-1 replaced my AV-2 as my primary home theater and gaming receiver.

re: AV-1

I've seen several posted on eBay. Sellers wanted IMO ridiculous prices for them. For example, I paid (not a typo) $0.01 for my non-working AV-1. The cheapest remote I have found was starting bid of $125. Not sure why they are so pricey.
And I am still looking for an AV-1 or AV-2 service manual. They are not even out there to buy ;et alone download.
