A hidden gem…. Solid A/V amp, esp. for the $!
This amp has done exactly what we hoped for, which is to be “smart” enough to seamlessly work with both our TV and another source, both as inputs, while, of course, sounding great, being easy to set up, and being affordable.
We had only one minor hiccup during the auto sound test setup. You may think it is in an infinite loop as it repeats the same test over and over and over, but in fact, it apparently is doing this on purpose. (Be ready for very loud white noise during the setup… yikes!)
The “arc” feature works beautifully. We can watch a streaming source from the TV, without ever picking up the amp remote. It (TV remote) automatically turns the amp on/off, and controls the amp volume etc as well…. Pretty cool.

Stopped working
I've had for a little over a year. Setup was kind of a pain, but once that was done it worked as it should. As of a week ago, it turns on but absolutely no output is given. TV is plugged in with HDMI through ARC and has no sound. PS4 is plugged through HDMI with no screen or sound output. Going to try a factory reset but from what I've read that is only a temporary fix. Very disappointed

Defective unit
The AVR-S540BT that I bought is defective. All of my 5.1 Channel speaker system is working but the subwoofer. I tried replacing a brand new subs and tried different subs too but none of the subs are working. I need a replacement.

Refurbished Good
The refurbished item looked like new. Everything in box except Startup Manual; it and full manual available from download. Automatic setup did not work, but setup easily from setup button on remote which had automatic setup as choice. Early days, but I seem to have received exactly what I purchased.

The Refurbis Demon Home Theatre Receiver I bought
Everything works very well. But now I’m ready for a better one with more channels, more output wattage and all of the above. But for the price, it works very well.

Good receiver for the money
This item is a low end receiver with most of the bells and whistles of a more expensive item. I got this refurbished, but it looked great and is performing to my higher expectations. The integration with my smart TV was fairly easy to set up and works well. I currently am using an old Bose system, but could upgrade the speaker system without needing a new receiver.
