Solid receiver

Mr. Holmes, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this thing in constant user for near a decade. It's now the weak link in my system and due for replacement, but it's still working hard and sounding the same as it did when I bought it. Not much more I could have expected out of it for the price I paid for it, maybe $200, years ago.

Poor Sound Quality for Music

  • Summary: I got this receiver 2 days ago because of its exciting price and SONY brand.But I was totally disappointed with its performance, especially when it plays music. And its clamed 100w output power is also suspecting, it even has difficulty to support my 91db sensitivity 8 ohm bookshelf speakers. The sound quality of movie is still acceptable. Don't buy if you also want a relative good music output.

Not a star performer and doesn't last long

JAB "JAB", Amazon

  • Summary: I had this receiver for about 2 years before it died. Movies sounded fine with this however the clarity of sound was poor (characteristic of SONY). I didn't know how good my JBL speakers could sound until I bought a new receiver to replace this one (only 2yrs old!!!!) My biggest complaint with this thing was that it completely died after ~2yrs of using it ~1hr per day!
