Junk

Eric S., Newegg
21 September 2013
  • Summary: I have always bought Sony receivers (4th one) and they have always lived forever (only my oldest one finally tanked after 20 years. Won't get refurbished one again for sure.
  • Pros: Sounded good for about a month. Low price. That's where I got suckered.
  • Cons: 5 days after warranty ends, it starts failing if the volume is turned up beyond 40 (out of 70). Now have to pay the price of a new one. I'm going to ask Sony if they will honor it just 5 days after warranty, but I'm guessing they won't replace it.

  • Pros: Looks Good

  • Summary: Newegg idiotic Customer Service states they are unable to read Network ready "Yes" under details. They must be blind as well.
  • Pros: I have no clue, there was no reason to install this.
  • Cons: Labelled as Network Ready. It is not. No Auto Calibration on N. american Models for some moronic reason.

Lief super, bis er halt nicht mehr lief.

josefstudiert "jupp", Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Ich hatte kein brummen oder ähnliches am Gerät. Hab das Gerät auch sofort angeschlossen bekommen. und kompliziert ist da nicht wirklich viel, daher verstehe ich auch nicht die schlechten Bewertungen, nur weil die Leute zu doof sind, den Verstärker zu bedienen.

Schnörkelloser Receiver mit schnellem Ableben

HK, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Schnörkelloser Receiver, auf zeitgemässem Stand. Wie bei all diesen Geräten ist die Bedienung der Detaileinstellungen bisweilen etwas kryptisch, aber das ist bei den Wettbewerbsprodukten (leider) meist ebenso bizarr. Hervorragendes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
