All the features, too complex

Steven B. Patton "St Pat", Amazon
15 October 2011
  • 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.

FM tuner - low sensitivity

Raymond Kostanty, Amazon
3 February 2010
  • 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. Now I see why Sony doesn't publish the tuner sensitivity specs. Other stronger stations sounded okay. (I'm about 35 air miles south of NYC, in Central New Jersey.

Nice but no upconversion...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 July 2009
  • 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. It provides input switching, but if you provide a composite or component video input, then you must use the corresponding output to view that source. Only HDMI inputs are routed to the HDMI output.

Kein Fehlkauf

Woodiwoodfoot "Timo", Amazon

  • 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. Habe ich definitiv schon besser und einfacher gesehen. Ansonsten ein gutes Gerät.
