Caveat Emptor

citizen1951, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: I think you should think long and hard about buying this receiver. Not only did I have problems with this product, SONY service is absolutely horrible. After six months the receiver was not sending a video signal to my TV. Why? No one knows. I was just using HDMI connections so the set up should have been simple and solid. It was not. We were watching TV one night and it just quit.

Repair shop happy

  • Summary: I have had this unit for six months and it is headed back to the shop for the second time. The HDMI switching is very poor. Every time I change the channel I lose the sound and have to toggle the source to get it back. What a pain! I really don't use it that much so I guess I could live with this but ... It has completely failed twice, no sound or picture. I have to change my outputs to the old school connections to get it to work.

Faulty product, nobody to contact.

  • Summary: All HDMI inputs are faulty, they just stopped working I even checked with new cables. I need a replacement but don't have the option to contact the Amazon EU S.a.r.l seller? What do I do I'm left powerless with an expensive, faulty receiver. Not happy at all.

schade

Henrik H., Amazon
4 August 2013
  • Summary: Trotz zugesicherter technischer Unversehrtheit, ist es defekt. Jedesmal kam der integrierte Protector. Außerdem war das Gerät nicht nur leicht mit Kratzer o.ä. wie beschrieben. Deutliche große Dellen im Gehäuse, die drauf schließen lassen, dass das Gerät zuvor heruntergefallen sein muss. Das wäre aber nicht schlimm gewesen. Mir war wichtig, dass das Gerät funktioniert. Tat es leider nicht. Deswegen Rücksendung. Egal wieder was gelernt.

Murks Receiver

den-libuda "den-libuda", Amazon
15 January 2012
  • Summary: Das erste Gerät hat nach 6 Wochen sein Betrieb eingestellt. Hat sich immer selber ausgeschaltet. Ich dachte, ein Produktionsfehler und habe mir den Receiver nochmal gekauft. Hier konnte ich nach zwei Wochen keine Rücksetzung auf die Werkseinstellungen durchführen. Weiterhin war keine Klangregelung am Gerät möglich. Hat immer auf GUI-Mode umgeschaltet. Das gleiche Spiel beim tuning-mode: geht nicht, schaltet auf GUI-Mode.
