Summary: I bought this receiver to replace an older one. I trusted Sony and, so far have not been disappointed. I picked this unit based on reviews and also the fact that it had 3 HDMI inputs (my TV only has 1). The great thing is that it is NOT pass-thru, meaning that I get both video AND audio through the HDMI. I have not yet used the microphone to set the speakers but, the sound is good right out of the box. All in all, I like this unit...
Fantastic customer service with quality Sony product.

Summary: I was initially doubting myself if I can ever make this receiver work and if I can ever follow Sony multi buttons functions and ever do various connections as shown in the manual. I was in the brink of frustration for the first few days because I can't seem to make it work. It's been a long time since the last time I setup home stereo system more so with Satellite receiver and with my new Samsung HDTV.
quality item for price great for some not for others

Summary: pro's: the actual receiver seems to be a very good quality, and sounds very very good. 3 hdmi in and 1 out. cons: only 1 anolog out, makes switching to hd then back to anolog a bit of a pain in the butt, because you need to keep about 3 remotes at your side, due to not all channels being hd, and a regular picture does not look so good on the hd video input and also the picture size is screwed up. takes a few seconds to power on after hitting power button.
Summary: I love it, especially it being a Sony. They have always had a reputation and the products speak for themselves. As far as this receiver its worked as expected and has an ease of use functionalities. Love the simple speaker sound setup, takes less than a minute.
