TX-SR494 Reviews

  • Excellent unit for the price. Yes, there are more expensive units, with more inputs and more power. But this is all most people will ever need. The sound is as good as it gets, so long as you have decent speakers. This unit really only lacks Wi-Fi, which most people don’t need. Everything the unit has works perfectly. Sounds 10x better than the 11 year old unit It replaced, that cost twice as much. If you are just looking for great home theater sound for movies, TV and games and only have 3 or 4 devices, this is the system to get.
