Summary: Great features, pretty good sound at a reasonable price. I'm not a super audiophile but I do know the difference between entry level to very high-end audio equipment. I'd say this receiver is probably in the upper mid-range of quality which is good enough for me.
Summary: This A/V unit is OK, and does the job. I had it paired with a Sony TV and had no problems. Recently I've paired it with a Samsung Smart TV, a Samsung BluRay player and a Direct TV Satellite receiver. The Sony receiver works with each of the other units but switching back and forth is complicated. It can be made to happen but the Smart TV works against the Smart Sony. My recommendation is to stay with the same brands through your system.
Summary: I just use mine for surround sound, I needed the HD ports and seeing that it is 3D compatible was nice too since I have a 3D tv and blu ray. Sound is good, easy to hook up as far as receivers go. From what I read 3D compatible has to do with a certain upgrade, so if you get an older version you'll have to upgrade it with firmware on the internet, seems easy enough to do though, mine was already updated.
Summary: I bought this receiver about 18 months ago. All of a sudden HDMI inputs started failing. I would be watching TV or a Blu-ray and screen would go blank with the message "No Signal. Check the external input or select another input using the INPUT button". Called Sony and reset the unit to factory settings per their instructions. Sony rep said if that didn't fix it the unit would need repair. Of course it didn't work, unit still failed.
Summary: el recibidor llego en perfectas condiciones, en un tiempo razonable y muy bien empaquetado, aun sin instructivo fue muy facil de entender todas sus funciones y la cantidad de conecciones con la que dispone es muy varidad; ademas la claridad de sonido en impresionante y nitida, el control me permite utilizar mis otros equipos electronicos de la misma marca sony, como mi dvd y mi tv, en verdad que es un excelente producto. muchas gracias.
Summary: When my old tuner/Amp fried on me I was at a loss, however while this has less options for manual controls - it relys heavily on the remote control, it does offer the same ease of use, setup, functions and options my prior Sony Tuner/Amp did with all the upgrades of today's technology!
