Good points:
Good sound, good looks.
Bad points:
Radio just will not work, unit keeps switching itself off and changing from the sky box to the dvd player all by itself! When I have time think it needs to be changed!

Manufacturer's Description

The essentials of HD home cinema made affordable: that’s the VSX-421. Phase Control eliminates lag between the 5 channels and significantly improves multi-channel sound.
Or use it as the centre of your audio setup for gaming or home DJing. With 5 HD inputs including 3 x HDMI, you are equipped for regular use.

True home cinema
Turn your living room into a cinema with 5.1 HD surround sound. With speakers in the front, rear and middle and and a subwoofer connected, you’ll immerse yourself in a lively film experience.

High-definition audio
Besides Dolby Pro Logic II, the receiver supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio so you can enjoy uncompressed, high-definition audio from Blu-ray discs as well.

AM/FM tuner built-in
No more need for a separate AM/FM tuner component. This receiver has a tuner with 30 pre-set stations built-in so you can easily listen to your favourite radio stations.

The latest, convenient HDMI technology
With HDMI you can use this receiver to watch 3D video from a Blu-ray disc. Other convenient features include an Audio Return Channel for TVs with DVD player or Tuner built-in, for example, and Standby pass-through.

Connect your portable device
If you have a mobile device to play audio from, simply connect it to the receiver using the 3.5mm mini-jack on the front panel.

Level your sound experience
Often, you need to manually adjust the volume between different media sources because one is louder than another. Auto Level Control detects the difference, and adjusts the volume for you automatically.
