Summary: Would have given it a five star but it doesn't really have an equalizer to tune it where you like to hear your music and tv programs. However for the money if works fine and last long time(hopefully)
Summary: Bought this in 2009 for a rental room unit to power 5 speakers and a subwoofer. This is a very basic receiver and doesn't have all the bells and whistles like the higher end models, but it works and is still in use today.

Summary: It was perfect what I was looking for. I have it installed on my PS3, and 5.1 sound is amazing. Just one Cons: If you're gonna install a PS3 (or any else HDMI device), you've to need 2 cables: 1 HDMI (for the video, connected directly to LCD TV) and 1 optical cable (for audio, connected to...
Summary: What can I say, it does what Sony says and does it well. It is running a quality "Definitive" 5.1 speaker system with no problems at all. One caution, not apparent in the advt, altho this connects using HDMI, it also requires TosLink audio cables. Who knew?
Summary: I like this receiver because it has a nice feature set and a very low price. It would make a great receiver for a first-time home audio setup. One warning: The HDMI inputs on this receiver do not have the capability of transferring the audio content of whatever source you've connected to the...
Summary: This worked for about a month or two before the power supply started to hum. I had replaced another Sony with this one and was happy for the most part... or I thought I was. When the second Sony broke after such a short period of time I started looking into other brands.
Summary: I bought this receiver to provide sound to the TV in a bedroom and not as my primary unit, so I was not expecting a lot from it. I was pleased that it had HDMI capability but disappointed that it is "pass-through" only, requiring RCA or Component hook-ups for sound, probably one of the reasons it...
Summary: My goal to arrange cheap 5.1 home theater with good sound was achieved! This plus Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1 gives a good result. So, i don't see the point of using this receiver for video upscaling, you would want to go with something more expensive and having hdmi repeater. Only sound?
