A fine unite but woeful documentation

Glencoe listener, ABT Electronics

  • Excerpt: There is almost nonexistent set up information. For example, you are not told that in order to set up the radio capability you must first connect the unit to a TV set. Otherwise you cannot program FM or AM stations. This is a very important step and should really be documented carefully. If it was not for this fact I would have given the unity a 5 Star review because it works very well.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

  • Excerpt: More complicated to set up then appears and the user manual is terrible. Does not explain any features and expects the user to figure them out. The receive itself is large, like something you would get ion the 80's.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Limited Functions, Poor Sound Quality

It's a Sony!

  • Summary: I bought this receiver as a gift for my daughter and son-in-law, and I must write that this receiver is perfect for their needs. They couldn't be happier. It is both stylish and functional, and it has all the features that they wanted including a USB port that charges their smartphones while they enjoy their favorite tunes. Most importantly, this receiver effortlessly makes their speakers sing with great detail and clarity.
  • Pros: Functional and stylish with just the right added features at a terrific price!

  • Summary: This Sony receiver ascted and set up like all the others I have ever had...fast and easy. Even easier now with HDMI cables. Sound was great and there was a noticable difference in quality from the previous receiver (which was an older Sony)
  • Pros: Easy set up, HDMI cable compatable, easy navigation menu, great sound quality
  • Cons: Knobs for speaker wires are close and hard to work with if you have big fingers. Some other simple clip style would be nice.

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace an older Sony. I was amazed at the clarity of the audio and video! Both are excellent, even though I was very pleased with the older model. Very easy to set up. Great features. Use with my 42" Panasonic Plasma. Would highly recommend to anyone who desires a outstanding 5:2 receiver.
  • Pros: Features and ease of setup. Great HDMI connections. Attractive receiver!
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Fast and easy set-up. I was replacing an old amp. I used the pre-printed cable labels provided and this made the removal and replacement very fast. The speaker tuning feature worked great and was very accurate. I control this unit with a logitech universal remote and it responds as expected.
  • Pros: Speaker tuning and ease of set-up
  • Cons: microphone for speaker set-up is about 12ft. If you have a large room this could be an issue
