Wonderful sound for the money! I am using mine in a stereo audio-only configuration driving large, full range towers with a reputation of being bright very. The 1052 makes them sound clear, balanced, and detailed. I've listened to them for 10 hours at a clip with no fatigue. Quite enough bass for me and it's well controlled. The tuner is very good, although I rarely use it. The mm phono stage is dead quiet and very dynamic. I got mine used for $200 and I haven't seen one that cheap since. I'd be happy with it at twice the price!



re: RX-1052

Owned this since new, 2007. Still in daily use. I use it with audio sources only. Sound is warm, easy, detailed. I do wish it had better tone controls and a balance control. I live in a fringe area and the tuner is only so-so IMHO. I use an external Denon tuner with it. The unit's display was never super bright, and it has continued to dim over the years to the point where it's now almost unreadable during daylight hours. Never went anywhere near the 'zone' feature, a pointless waste if you ask me. I keep my RX-1052, and use it, and enjoy it because of the beautiful sound it makes.
