Summary: i do not own this receiver but i can point out a potential unintentional flaw with a few of the reviews i have read. all i really want to say is that this receiver pulls a max of ~1586.6 watts, the average home circuit for kitchen, bedroom, or living room allows for 15 amps at 115~120 volts.
Summary: Sony replaced an older es model of mine with this after my old one broke. It took Sony "9 months" to replace the receiver. After numerous calls to rude operators with no answers I finally threatened to sue. Only then did I get my replacement.
