Excerpt: Easy to set up plenty of "options" available. Was impressed with the automated speaker setup - includes a small microphone that you position where you want the optimum sound to be and it tries to make it "sound right" for wherever you have to put your speakers.
Summary: I was looking for a receiver to replace my 10+ year old Pioneer. Took a chance on this Sony STR--DH750 because it had what I wanted - Bluetooth, 4K/3D pass thru, power per channel and 7.2 ability. I didn't need Airplay, WI-FI or additional zone. Got it on sale for a great price and free fast shipping, thanks Crutchfield. Easy setup.
Summary: I upgraded from a previous Sony 6.1 system. Sounds great so far. Audio portion of setup was sweet with the "auto" setup using the included microphone. I took one star off because of the speaker hookups. Oh My Gosh... talk about a pain in the !@#!. It took me about an hour to hook up my seven speakers. I think more space in between the thumb screws would help a lot. Whatever happened to press the plastic tab, insert the speaker wire, done.
Pros: Sounds great.
Cons: Speaker connections too close together. Emits a noticeable hum when powered on, idol, and speakers are not hooked up or "off".
Summary: I've had this receiver for about a year now and I STILL marvel about the rich and luxurious sounds produced. My mother can't listen to her instrumental satellite radio station enough. I even became a fan. Setup is fairly simple and I enjoy television and movies like never before! The surround sound is AWESOME!
Summary: I bought my unit from Best Buy after my Onkyo SR607 was failing and finally died. Some features didn't work, the remote was frustrating, but once dialed in, sounded great. After I moved, and tried to set it up with a new 60in plasma and bigger speakers, it finally bit the dust. Had to run out and get something new. Honestly I wanted something else beside Onkyo. They run EXTREMELY hot, like frying an egg on top hot...and they fail within 4 years.
Summary: I really like this unit. I have the 1050 at home and wanted a unit for work. The only reason I gave it four stars and not five is due to the setup. The 1050 display for the setup is more user friendly. Once I got it set up though it works wonderful.
