Excerpt: Really good sounding unit for the price, but...... do not expect to get good FM radio reception. This unit replaced an older Sony (and a Marantz receiver before that Sony). Those older units used the same antenna and were in the area of operation.
Excerpt: I bought this A/V receiver to replace an old one and I've been pleased with my decision. The sound quality is quite good for the relatively low cost. The receiver is quite flexible with many settings that can be customized.
Excerpt: It was easy to set up, has a pretty good set of features. Its easy to use and most importantly it sounds great. I got it on a really great sale, but I would say its worth its full retail value.
I wish the remote had more buttons, but I guess they changed it because I'm not like most people.
Summary: Would recommend to others. Maybe they can figure this stuff out. Open to any possible solutions.
Pros: Great sound great features
Cons: Wish it was easier to sink the whole tv-cable-receiver. Can't get a Panasonic flat screen tv to sink with the surround sound. When I turn on the tv/cable with the remote the receiver starts muting the sound off and on nessitating the restart of the receiver then everything is fine ?
Excerpt: Bought this receiver to replace my H/R 247, which quit working, & have so far been pleased with it. Of course we have only been using it for 3 days. The only thing that I didn't like about this purchase was the fact it did not come with a manual. I'm a manual type of guy.
Excerpt: The price at ABT was unbeatable. Great unit, except that I had to replace my old Sony receiver that broke, It would have cost more than the new unit to repair. However, this unit is better and less expensive than the one I replaced.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Excerpt: For what I needed it is a great device. My issues are with the documentation, or lack there of, from Sony. The modes and options are not explained so you have to search for what things mean on the internet. The other thing I did not realize is that it needs a powered subwoofer.
