Summary: I like the sound quality, but every time I want to change something I have to go to the manual. Add I have had stereos and sound systems for over 20 years. I would buy another unit if I had to do over. The quality and price are good though.
Summary: Have had the receiver four weeks, so far have the computer sound and radio originating through receiver, but have not been able to connect Sony DVD to receiver using HDMI. Have DVD going direct to TV until I have time to work on problem.
Summary: Even in the Mono mode, the two stations I listen to most (91.5 and 99.5 from NYC) were far too hissy to enjoy. Yet the signal strength meter on my older Yamaha RX-V490 showed these stations at maximum level. And my still older Technics SA-410 plays them perfectly.
Summary: Don't be fooled by the manual or by descriptions on other AV retailer websites... This model does NOT include analog->digital upconversion. If you have a mixture of new and older devices this will not allow you to use a single HDMI cable to your display.
Summary: Die Klangqualität ist super, keine frage. Die Grundeinstellungen und Abstimmung der einzelnen Lautsprecher sind auch einfach. Wenn es jedoch an den Feinschliff und die Einstellung der gewünschten Soundprogramme geht, ist es schwierig durch die unübesichtliche Beschriftung Sonys durchzusteigen.
