poor circuitery

L. Wallace, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this Sony product with plans to connect a Blu-Ray to it. After speaking with the Sony customer tech suuport, I was told that the HDMI connections could not be used for either of the input-outputs because I have to hook it into my tv using a HDMI to DVI adapter. The Sony circuits would not support this type of connection, and would have to use a component type of connection. The unit is still sitting in the box.

Great, but no sound

  • Summary: I purchased this unit because of its reasonable price and HDMI capability. After replacing my existing receiver, I found that the front left and right channels and one of the rear channels had no output. After returning the unit and purchasing a replacement (of the same model), I am well pleased. The set up was a snap. The automatic sound balancing worked perfectly. The HDMI works flawlessly. Once I got a working unit everything is good.

Impossible to get it working with Dish Network HD remote

JW, Amazon

  • Summary: Sound was very good but this system had one nagging flaw. By default Sony receivers are set to AV2 option which limits other universal remotes from being able to be programed to be compatible. This prevented me from using my SAT remote from being able to control volume on the receiver. I purchase this receiver to work with my Sony Bravia LCD with the hope of eliminating at least one remote but in fact added another just for volume control.
