You get what you pay for

Anthony D. Green "Salsa Man", Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: I really love the sound, but you do get what you pay for. The HDMI slots after a year or so seem to get a little rough with the connections and sometimes doesn't register components or they get static, and if I re-insert the cables it works fine. A HUGE drawback of this unit is the lack of an on-screen display. Making adjustments to it are a nightmare while squinting to read the led panel and maintain a good distance for adjusting sound.

works well but...

Mike Whelchel, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: very complicated to set up, the directions for the various settings are almost incomprehensible. I expect there are capabilities I would use if the manual was written in a way that made any sense. If I had to buy again, I would buy a receiver that has on screen visuals for it's settings.

Not a bad reciever - best suited to Sony components only

Jay K. Knight, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I needed a new surround reciever for my entertainment center and this one was well reviewed and includued the 3 HDMI connectors. This would be a really usefull feature if my TV and DVD were also Sony components. In this case, this unit is designed to be the 'master' entertianment system controller with control over the HDMI cables. You could use this unit's remote to control most apects of the TV, DVD, etc. eliminting the need to keep up with multiple remotes.

Not engrossing, subwoofer does not play as a team

Amazon Customer "indiaj0nes", Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: The Receiver is not expensive, can provide average sound but i am not so much impressed with the receiver. Pros - 1) Easy to assemble, easy setup. 2) will work with other sony devices 3) Lot of options on sound Cons - 1) Subwoofer sounds bassy, does not play well with the other speakers. Bass seams to be coming from the subwoofer. May be because the Xover frequency cannot be set? 2) Does not decode TrueHD, However, most of the BD players now do.

Etwas enttäuscht

Gaby Scholz, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: Wenn man nicht zu hohe Erwartungen an die Ausgangsleistung stellt ist das Gerät o.k. Etwas enttäuscht war ich auch vom Display. Sieht ja doch sehr billig aus. Die Anschlußmöglichkeiten sind aber ausreichend. Insgesamt gesehen kann dieser Verstärker aber nicht an die Qualität der Vorgängermodelle von Sony anknüpfen.

Sony kanns besser

Prian,der üple Purche, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Habe den Receiver zurückgeschickt,da ich mit Klangbild und Verstärkerleistung nicht zufrieden war; mein alter Onkyo hat den Sony um Längen geschlagen. Der technische Schnickschnack (Menüführung etc) ist ok,dafür gibts ein paar Sternchen.Habe von Sony diverse andere Produkte, von daher war ich etwas enttäuscht. Sony kanns besser!
