Summary: I've had this receiver for 4 years now, and it still works and does exactly what i need it to do. I have 13 speakers hooked up to it, and it delivers great sound. In the back you have so many inputs and outputs it's ridiculous, and you can hook up everything from dvd players to coax antennas for radio. The only downside is that i can only push the volume level to about 40 (of max 80) before it starts to overheat and smell like it's on fire.
Summary: Well,having no experience, I bought this product so that I could listen to my satalite radio, Sirius in my house..(.the channel never changes other then the Elvis station).....thus I bought this many facet product...It does the job though I do not use many of the features and it is large... However, it does the job....
Summary: I had a Yamaha Surround Sound Receiver that lasted about 3 years. It died with power up related issue. I found this Sony receiver and it was comparable in price and had more features and the set up worked well with the mike that is included to set the speaker levels in the listening area. The performance has been good and the sound is good for a unit in this price range.
Summary: I really like this product and it gave me the sound that I wanted and was looking for. Truly, I doubt if I would ever be able to use this receiver at its full potential because I live in an apartment building and my neighbors would be complaining :) All in all... very satisfied... but... the set up instructions leaves a lot to be desired.
Summary: Excellent what else would you expet from Sony. This receiver finishes my Sony home theater perfectly! The Bravia Sync took some getting used to, since it automatically picks the best sound for the movie your watching in Blue Ray/DVD mode. Other than that excellent product!
