The RX-1052 stereo receiver is a pretty good sounding amplifier. Not spectacular but not humdrum either. At the end of the day, its a $900 stereo receiver so expectations and performance should be measured as such. With 100W on tap, three zone capability and a host of inputs and video jacks, the RX-1052 was quite the dutiful performer it was designed to be. It was musically pleasing to use with good dynamics, smooth mids, a tight bottom end and a nice wide soundstage. At its original $900 MSRP, it was a relatively expensive stereo receiver vis-a-vis with what it offers and the options available. But at under $200 now, its one of the better buys – reputable company, well built quality and a class leading, sub-$200 category sound.
Cosmetically, the unit is in fine shape. Some minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Remote control is included and unit will be securely pack for safe shipping.
