Excerpt: Very versatile. It's used for tv sound with hi-fi speakers, with cd player, with blue ray player, as a tuner, etc. The sound is very good with a good signal to noise ratio. The remote is easy to use.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Excerpt: An inadequate indoor antenna comes with it BUT == I asked SONY customer service -- there is not way to substitute a longer, better antenna nor a way to attach my good, old folded dipole antenna.DVD sounded very good, but obviously requires no antenna
Summary: I didn't do enough research for this product...I shopped on price. I'll just say that you get what you pay for. It's Sony, and I trust it, and it's worked well enough for me so far, but it's far inferior to what I wanted to have purchased. I thought I was getting a great deal on a great receiver. What I got was an ok deal on a fair receiver. Ultimately, that's on me. Like I said, I didn't do enough research.
Excerpt: The first unit I received had a defective display (no display) but B&H quickly forwarded me a return authorization and shipping label and I was promptly sent out a replacement new unit which works fine and has a terrific sound and is very easy to hook up and get going straight out of the box. For $ I can't see how you can go wrong. Looks great too!
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Excerpt: The stereo is relatively easy to set up and operate. The receiver is basically used to listen to AM/FM radio and drive the cd/dvd player. The receiver and antennas work very well for these basic functions. Sound and clarity is very good for this inexpensive receiver.. I've only had the receiver for several weeks but it has performed well during that the frame. Super fast shipping and excellent B&H service.
Excerpt: I bought this for a compact receiver for a small room to provide background music while working out. I like the multiple adjustments available on the remote which include tone and balance adjustment in addition to the usual basic source input and volume controls. This makes it possible to do these adjustments as needed without needing to stop my activity and walk over to the receiver.The tiny unlit and faintly labeled controls on the receiver are not as user friendly.
