Technics SA-DX930
This has been a great receiver for me! I noticed a big diffrence when I switched from a Sony. It has a much better sound. My parents bought a home theater a couple of weeks ago and I recomended they use the SA-DX930. They love it as well! Thankfully I have not run into any overheating problems. I must have gotten a good one on the first try. I hope mine and my parents continue to be problem free and produce incredible sound!

Excellent Receiver, Only 300, thats about $320. The volume on this baby is incredible! :), I mean just turn it up to 10 o clock and the walls are shaking! I got monitor audio bronze 2's and the ASW-100. Sounds like heaven. I like Morcheeba, Led Zeppelin, The Fun Lovin Criminals and bass is an important factor. Hope to get the DVD-A160 (panasonic) in a while so I can do movies also.
I'm from Ireland everyone, (most peoples favourite country)
I really really like this receiver :)

Whell I got apparently a faulty Unit and it does what the other guy tell i get radio signal from every input I selected, I will repair it shrotly becouse I bought it in USA and I leve in Venezuela I has to pay for the repair, Anyone have any idea what is broken for it to make that extrange thing.

While it worked it was a beautifull thing whatching DVD's in dolby digital, using the coaxial, I watched The Matrix, Various Mettallica DVD's, and somo Movies in VHS (prologic) Im really newvie about all this audio stuff but taking as a reference the movie theater it sounded great, also I wish to know What speakers wattage work better with this receiver, If I use for example 4 JBL N24 plus the N-Center, and later I buy a big pair for music like the N38 or the ND310, would be better than using different manufacturer speakers, I actually use some old Speakers by BOS Systems (not BOSE) its rated at only 35RMS 75 Music power each one they have a 12 inch Woffer 2 4 inch Mediums and two tweeter 8 omns, I use those for the main speakers, A Yamaha in the center its rated at 150watts 6 Omn, a JBL PSWD12 for subwofer, and two JBL Control 25 for sorround.

I just bought a Technics SADX940, and will repair the 930 for use with my computer.

This amp has great features, the reason I give it an 8 is because it is continuously overloading even at low volume, I thought that if I bought better speakers this would solve the problem, I bought the technics sl50's....no better. The fan doesn't seem to kick in...I'll look into this & let you all know

excellent everything as long as the front speakers are 4ohm and everything else is 8ohm.....also a cooling fan on top might help if you don't have sufficient clearance for the top heat vent......very amazing for the money

This receiver was the first home-cinema receiver that I purchased.
As a complete "newbie" I had no idea how good or bad this unit was until I decided to buy a new one......
My reasons for replacing this unit was that it is good but not good enough.
A few minus in the protocol goes to:
* Not possible to set the front speakers up individually
* No S-VIDEO input
* No on-screen configuration
* 2 repairs in one year

As I went looking for a new receiver that could make my THX speakers worth their money I ran into alot of problems.
The DX930 comes with on-board DTS, 5.1-in, receiver, the list goes on and on but when looking at the specifications on other FAR more expensive units they always lacked features that was included in the DX930. "This is kinda weird" I thought, but the longer I went looking for a new receiver the more I realized what an excellent purchase I hade made when buying the DX930!
The strenght in this unit is the huge bunch of functions and quality you get for every dollar spent.
If money is an issue when looking for a receiver (duh....), this is the one I would recommend.
In order to benefit from a "better" unit you would have to have some serious demands and a big wallet. This is definitely a unit that will make every home-cinema sound at its best!

i had to return one. It burnt out and actually was acting really weird at the end. (tuner audio coming out of dvd and tape as well as tv.) Panasonic people were COMPLETE asses about it. Just want you to go through the motions of their repair regime. I refused and went back to the store and bitched until they replaced it, which they had been saying they couldn't do because they wouldn't get credit from Panasonic. Could tell that they all knew that there were many lemons in those boxes but they all tried to act like I was the first customer with a return.
All that said, I LOVE this unit!!! I've had a good one for about four months now and I work it out! it runs a bit warm (Keep it on top of an open shelf, lots of air flow)but it sounds great, i'm a sound profesional, I record for film. Trust me, for the money, this box is a miracle! Crisp, clean, quiet, powerful reproduction. That's the bottom line at any price and this sounds like audiophile gear. The remotes a bit flaky, true but only a little. (rewind might take a few tries) but the sound is what I'm here for and for that money, frankly it feels like somebody is making a mistake. A powered sub will make it run a bit cooler, but actually the thing is built to run hot. I think they cheaped on production labor or inspection and the soldering is funky on a lot of them; I don't think the heat is the issue, personally. other cons? No s-vid connects (should have at least 2, I go direct, though) and my peeve-- NO LIGHT ON THE VOLUME KNOB TO LET YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS IN THE DARK!! Otherwise, i say, shop at a nearby place with a liberal return policy, get an extended warranty, and keep bringing em' back till you get a good one! It's worth it! (also, you get bargaining power from the dealer for all your hassle, get a good price on something else or maybe a free dvd or something for your trouble.

I purchased this receiver seven months ago and it has been a real work horse for me. I am well aware of the heat problem and have done much research on it....the bottom line is that it is designed to run warm and the components are of a very high quality that are normally used in receivers costing several hundred dollars more. I would reccomend that you place the unit in the open and or on top of your audi rack in order to maximize air flow around and on top of the unit. Placing it in a sealed audio cabinet will restrict the air flow that this unit requires. I have used this unit everyday at high volumes at it simply delivers on all fronts....For the price and ease of set up coupled with it's very good specs....it's a real winner !!! In this price range to find a receiver with Dolby Digital and DTS and 100 watts of power to all six channels is very rare. I will also tell you that I am running a self powered sub-woofer that reduces some of the power demand from the receiver. Foe some of those people who experienced some problems with over heating....the technicians at Technics tell me that they did in fact experience some early problems with electronic parts that has now been solutioned. I can't say enough about this receiver and how good and clean the sound is...you will have to just buy one and see for your self....Thanks to Technics for making a receiver that is both affordable and of fine quality for it's price range.

First unit failed after 3 weeks. Replacement unit has failed completely twice, with various intermittent peculiarities usually correctable by reset or power off/on. Runs too hot. Sound only fair, I think, with the effects (hall, club, etc.) useless. Panasonic pretends that the unit has no problems when confronted with this.
