Although the unit is refurbished, it works very well and looks fine. Had a little snafu when it arrived; the front panel fell off in my hands. We were glad it came when it did because it was just in time for the housewarming. So I glued the front panel on and it's not been a problem since.
I have had this A/V receiver for almost 2 months. I love it! Paired with the Onkyo 7.1 speakers this baby rocks. The sound is great with music and movies!
I bought this receiver for music outside by the pool. Its kept in the garage, it has plenty of power and love the idea that I can pack a 8gb USB thumb drive with hours of music, its like having my own satellite radio. The USB option is really what sold me on this unit. In addition it will play standard cd's and MP3 cd's. The only drawback is it has a cooling fan built in to it that is a little loud. But for my use it's really not an issue with it being outside. But I think if you would use this indoors in a quiet environment it could become annoying.
