You get what you pay for, but this gets the job done. I use this receiver to run 4 outdoor speakers and it works just fine. It's not close to the 800 watts it advertises, but I expected that. The product booklet it comes with contains next to no information and isn't the least bit helpful. I've noticed that the sound quality seems to suffer when connected through the AUX output, but that could be the same with any receiver. Not a bad receiver, but don't expect miracles.
