Summary: This reciever was fine for a while but then I lost the dolby processing, the center channel started dropping out, and I only got full surround sound through the coaxial input. I like Sony, but sound doesn't seem to be something that they do well at.
Summary: Buying from Amazon was cheapest price especially with free shipping. Stepped up for more power per channel. Stayed in the Sony family. (Previous Sony surround, output to center speaker quit) Dislike the speaker hook ups in back, difficult to attach speaker wires and screw down connections.
Summary: GOOD BUY BUT DONT BUY FROM BEST BUY.IT COST 200.00 THERE.I WISHED I HAD DISCOVERED AMAZON FIRST.ANYWHO,AS FAR AS THIS RECEIVER GOES IM NOT DISSAPOINTED IN ITS PERFORMANCE.THE SOUND IS FANTASTIC, THE OPTIONS ON DIFFERENT SOUNDS ARE MANY.

Summary: You can't beat the price on this for the options you can create with it. It was a bit confusing at first for me as I'm not terribly experienced with things like this. The manual helped somewhat.
Summary: I purchased this in April of 2007 for $66. I will primarily use this to provide the audio when watching a DVD. I will also listen to CD's and the FM stereo. My front speakers are 2 Pinnacle bookshelf with a Sony 100 watt subwoofer. I played Green Day at a high volume level to test the system.
Summary: This receiver is a dream. It produces amazing sound quality with MANY options for different effects. I am a DVD collector and gamer and love high quality sound more than anything. I am only 18 but I know quality electronics, it is in fact what i am going to college to further develop.
Summary: I've been buying SONY products for 30 years and I've never been as disappointed as I am with this product of theirs. Besides the fact that I have yet to figure out why the speakers cut-out periodically...
Summary: When I got this receiver, I taught it might sound real bad since i only had two bookshelf speakers. I was very wrong when this receiver delivered full bass and tremble to my Extended Defenicion Sony Speakers. After about 2 months I got a Subwoofer which was incredible!
It's not top of the line, but you get a great deal for your money

Summary: With electronic equipment prices running at the high hundreds, this product shows that you don't have to spend a fortune to get good stereo sound. Now I have a home theater with the sound experience good enough for a regular home sized room.
