nothing is perfect, but the 202 does everything i've wanted it to do , mainly sound better than the high end hand made separates that I had in my system. I was actually shocked at how detailed this unit was and since I bought it because of its awesome switching capabilites ,I suprised to find out how good sounding it was as well. At 55 pounds, this is no light weight made in Japan receiver. It is elegant, menu is a bit plodding to go through, but very easy to set up, it's understated beauty grows with time. It does best what it's supposed to do, reporduce multi channel film the way it was recorded. I've had yamaha dsp units that sounded ok but were so gimmicky sounding that the only cinema modes I could use were the straight pro logic or DD. People have made comments previously about how good some of the yamaha dsp stuff is, and it became clear that they didn't actually do any critical comparison listening with controlled sources. I think it's hilarious that some people feel compelled to try and put down equipment just because they bought something else, and in the process trying to justify their own expenditures.

I have had my B&k for 2 years now and since I was coming from high end
separates, it was quite a pleasant suprise to find that the amp section
of this unit was more detailed and smoother than my hand made amplifer.
I love the switching capabilities and the 7 digital inputs which are almost
impossible to find on anything but the top of the line yamaha which has just
included that many recently. The manual sucks but it the receiver does what
I want it to do, mainly sound good and look elegantly understated at the same
time. It still is one of the best looking units out there. I have had no malfunctions from this unit and am pleased with the performance and the 5 year
warranty which comes with it. That's right folks 5 years and it's upgradable
too.

I bought mine for 150 bucks and my Pioneer rack sytem blows it away. I have two 16" in the boxes. My little AIWA sounds better....Ended up trading it for an RCA unit which rocks.

I recently purchased my AVR 202. I purchased this unit based on its abilty to reproduce what it is fed. This is a sonicly (real word?) awesome unit. The 202 sounded so much better than the Marantz, DSP1, and Sherwood I auditioned for my purchase I had to have it.

This is no toy with imaginary sound stages, etc. This is the real deal! I have never heard anything for music and movies that even comes close. I've always owned Yamaha equipment, so this was a difficult choice for me. I have moved my A1 into the bedroom and the 202 is now center stage in my HT room! A1 is great second choice but am I happy I did this!!

Great sound & build. Mine has no problems, seems they finally got the bugs out that plagued earlier ones. Chose it over the Denon 5700.

I reluctantly bought the B&K about two months ago after lots of listening to Denon 5600, Yammie DSP-A1, Act 3/Acurus, Onkyo DS-939. I had heard of a lot of people having probs with it but it just sounded better to me. Man, I am glad that I did, I have never had any pops, hums, fan noises, lockups or any of the probs that I had read about. The build quality is awesome,it weighs in at 55 lbs. and it can crank, it is very dynamic! The onscreen menu system is very easy to use and the learning remote is great and will work just about anything. Buy it from a dealer that knows what the hell they are talking about, because if it is not setup correctly it will apparently do some whacky things. This is the one to beat for music first systems, for theater first I would do the DSP-A1, I love it and my neighbor just got one and it is great.
