Summary: The reason i bought this receiver is i love Sony stereo equipment. I have bought a lot of stereo stuff in my life and they stand up as one of the best. I have purchased a lot of things off ebay and have been happy with all my purchases. I am building a set of speakers for my home that i hope to hook up to this receiver. Hope this helps anyone interested in purchasing stereo equipment.
Summary: I installed this unit in a home theater system in a smaller room. I have Axiom floor and center speakers. The audio output is very good; the digital upconversion is excellent...though fuzzy videos from VHS tapes are only marginally improved in the conversion process. FM reception is good with good audio quality. On the downside, AM reception/antenna are very poor, esp. in outlying areas (such as mine!) Overall, an excellent unit and very good value for the $.
Summary: This is the fourth Sony receiver I've owned and it just keeps getting better and better.I use this receiver in my living room with seven speakers and a powerful sub-woofer, connected to a large LCD high definition TV.All I can say is WOW!!! You can hear a pin drop or you can hear a bomb explode and they both sound realistic.(All of my previous receivers now belong to other family members.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: I use this with 7 JBL small speakers and a Yamaha sub-woofer with a 46 inch Sony Bravia TV and all I can say is WOW!!! This receiver was very easy to hook up and also easy to use the menus to set it up to your liking. With 3 HDMI inputs it handles a DVD player and a Blue-Ray player the way you would expect it to.When I first tried the CD player, I could hardly believe my ears.Fantastic product!
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
