  • Summary: The unit I received was damaged way more than I expected. Scratches and blemishes I could have dealt with. However the front face plate was partially off and dented, the whole unit would not sit level, and the USB port did not work. So it got returned, and amazon was great about it.

If you're feeling lucky ...

  • Summary: UPDATE, Jan 26 (about two weeks with replacement): Okay, the first receiver was indeed faulty. The new one is indeed reliable. On the other hand, I've gotta say - many of the problems I pointed out in my initial review still apply: the remote is still bipolar (and consequently the Harmony is also...

... is impressive and I believe to have been a good buy at $499

  • Summary: This is impressive and I believe to have been a good buy at $499. It being a FORMIDABLE task, I haven't replaced one of my Sony STR 33 ES units with this yet so I can't give an assessment of this at this point. If possible I will update after running it for awhile.

  • Summary: this is great product and produces and awesome sound. Also this amplifier saved a lot of electricity which is great plus. Unfortunately I had to return it as production description for 4K video didn't mention that 50p/60p isn't supported.

Looks good and sounds good.

  • Summary: Should have done my homework - the same product is cheaper here in Singapore and I wouldn't need to buy a 110-220 voltage transformer. Other than that, the AV receiver looks good, sounds good and provides a good number of options to set up and configure.

Works good most of the time

Tim F., Newegg
16 September 2013
  • Summary: I am concerned by the heat output by this device and reading other review stating that something on the [circuit] board fried.
  • Pros: Lots of features. FM radio reception works much better than the previous Sony receiver I owned using the same antenna.
  • Cons: Lengthy setup to go through all the devices and the USB - tablet are on the same device hookup. Also, the manual takes a while to find and setup other items like using the equalizer. The subwoofer would seem to make any sound until I switched it to the Plus setting. A couple of times I got no sou...
