Good value AV receiver - bad remote

tgor "Music Everywhere", Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Most of what you need to know about this AV receiver has already been discussed in the other reviews. The receiver has a very good set of features for the price point, which was the primary reason for our purchase. Without getting into the finer points of AV sound options and HD video conversion, this unit fits the bill in our family room and kitchen - a busy, noisy place with teenagers and a couple of dogs.

Works as advertised

22 February 2009
  • Summary: This receiver works just as advertised. It was the only one in this price range that included four HDMI inputs. I have a SAT, PS3, PC, & XBOX in a game room setup. The 1080p decoder isn't the best I have seen, but gets the job done. There is not a way to bypass the decoder, so you have to turn on the unit to watch video. The only other complaint is the power, which seems lower than the 100 X 7 that its rated.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Durable, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Limited Functions

It looks like this one is now discountinued by Sony!

Doug, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this when it was on back order with Amazon for $[...] and waited a few weeks to get it. The unit I received was making a "clicking" noise (that seemed to go away after about a week but I had already requested a replacement from Amazon). I received my replacement and hooked it up this weekend; no clicking noise, seems to be working fine. Normally I would wait to make a review until I had the unit a few weeks and really had a chance to check it out.

Great Receiver - very happy

SkykingUSA, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: I have been using this receiver for almost 2 months now and am really happy with it. Sound is great, auto calibration with mic is great. Menu system is convenient. I have 2 devices connected via HDMI and one via component video and optical audio. All output (video and audio) is sent through the HDMI output port to the 1080p HDTV. Works great. I send my Bluray player, my Popcorn Hour media player and my U-verse TV box through this receiver with no issues.

This Sony is so easy

Sezme, J&R
3 February 2009
  • Summary: Bought to decode the new Blu-Ray codecs. The Sony is very smart. I really don't know how to use it because I hooked everything up and it automatically found everything and started playing. I used the calibration mic and it's done. I never had to learn any ins/outs of the receiver. I may tweak later but still reveling in the ease of step one. Decoded Dolby-HD like soft butter. Sound is awesome for you Sony sound critics out there.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
  • Cons: No DVI or S-Video

Great sound, irritating flaws

Ken W. "No lie!", Amazon
3 February 2009
  • Summary: Two things to consider how NOT to design an A/V receiver and what to expect with this otherwise excellent unit: 1) SONY should put back the spring-loaded speaker wire connectors. This unit has screw type connectors which are very inconvenient and frustrating. My best advice is to make sure you have plenty of space to work in because you will go wild trying to get all the speaker wires inserted in the proper connector and making good contact while screwing them in tight.

Nice Receiver

MoneyMaker, B&H Photo
29 January 2009
  • Summary: This is replacing an Onkyo TX-SR605. I thought the receiver was broken so I purchased this Sony. Turns out the 605 wasn't broken but I liked the Sony so much better I am keeping it. The range of sound is much better than the Onkyo. I hear so much more through my speakers. I would def recommend this receiver to anyone.
  • Pros: Clean Sound, Good Power, Nice Looking

Good product for the money

Jaxson, B&H Photo
27 January 2009
  • Summary: I'm using this receiver for my main theater set-up, and so far it pretty much does everything I need, and has good sound. Despite what some reviews of this product say, I found the set-up fairly easy, and the manual to be both comprehensive and helpful. My only gripe, so far, is that it does not have an S-video connection for my old VCR.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
  • Cons: No S-video port
