Another cool thing is you can have sound from a source like a cd or tape deck while having the video output for another source being used. I have had no problems getting base sound from the 505 as I selected deeper sounding speakers when I bought the system with this in mind. If you're looking for more advanced options such as 5. Anyways, unless you consider yourself an audiophile or a serious audio enthusiast, it will provide you good stereo imaging. You can connect two sets of front speakers A and B and switch them electronically though not from the remote. Excellent value, and pretty good performance. This is my first effort at a suround sound system.
The power from the sub runs thru me like a sonic boom. The amplification is not very clean, and you will notice some hiss at high volume levels. I found the manual poor, but Im an tech junkie, so I would have liked a schematic too. I can recommend this Kenwood receiver for anyone wanting good quality sound on a budget. That kind of thing won''t be a problem with this one. This unit is flexible and powerful. Remote - Small and hard to operate without light.
The bass is very crisp and clear. At one quarter volume the Windows are rattling. Anyways, it's not bad, but it just looks cheap. A Kenwood system remote is included of course! The receiver's capabilities for stereo and Dolby Pro Logic via analog signals are also very nice. It takes some time to figure everything out, and even then some relatively simple tasks require quite a few button presses.
It is better than I had originally thought it would be. This is a great receiver for the beginner to start a home theater with plenty of hook-ups. I have to agree with everyone else about the effects being somewhat questionable, but I don't use them anyway hehe great bang for the buck and playing video games in 5. Make me an offer local pick up only. Adjustable bass and treble provide a good basic setup. Video switching doesn't seem to degrade the video signal quality which is quite a big plus if you use it. .
If you''re picky and want a great sounding system that doesn''t cost too much, this is perfect. I have all speaker wires and the optical cable. Digital Processing - It includes Dolby Digital 5. Lots of inputs, with customizable input settings for the digital connections. I tested it out with some heavy bassed rap by the Wu-Tang and also some treble based songs by the likes of Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.
Fairly good control over speaker positioning with the ability to control individual speaker volume. Home theatre sound is very good, and straight two channel audio is quite clean.

Official subreddit for Official Facebook Group at What is about? There are a few features that can only be activated from the remote.
After having used the equipment, it more than meets my expectations. I wouldn't recommended it for music listening though. While it looks nice, the front panel is made of cheap plastic, and I have a feeling the color of it may start to come off at some point under some conditions. Has optional sub woofer port if you need more boom. He may have exaggerated but many others have said similar things about receivers in this range. Of course the display sucks too.
I don't know how useful they are as they don't necessarily improve the sound, but they provide a quite authentic listening experience. The remote is small but managable. The outputs include 2 analog stereo outputs, 4 video outputs half composite, half s-video and a subwoofer pre-out. It produces a deep sound even without a separate sub-woofer. I hooked up my speakers up to the unit and it sounded like crap.
The additional settings for specific environment reproduction jazz, music hall, etc. My advice, if your short on cash, and want a reciver, just for movies, Kenwood will get you by. It also reads the number of speakers you have hooked up and channels the surround to those automatically. It has pretty much everything one might need. Excellent clearity from the sligtest tinkling to the loudest bells.
