Great setup for a light speaker setup

Kris W, Amazon
18 September 2015
  • Summary: Great setup for a light speaker setup. I've paired this amp with Pioneers Andrew Jones collection which for the money sounds great. I'd prefer a few more features on this amp as many of the other mid range amp have such as lcd front readouts instead of the older looking orange pixeled lettering from...

No longer state-of-the-art

Boston traveller, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: This was a state-of-the-art device when I bought it. It works great and the sound is fine. However, I expect there are simpler-to-use, lower-cost, higher-performance alternatives out there today.

Don't loose your remote

D Bow, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: I pick up this unit because the Sony brand is one of my all time favorites. I would not recommend this this unit. It lack some basic controls and function. Almost everything has to be done with the remote. I guess I paid more for the look

3 years no problems, nice quality for the home

Amy McAdams, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: We have had this since December of 2009 and we really like the receiver. It is easy to use, you get very good sound and it has a ton of connections. We have BIC America in wall Front and Rear speakers, a JBL center channel (this may be the cause of the low level, I got it from my brother and may...

Not That Great

Jerry A., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Pros: Decodes fine, looks good
  • Cons: Sound quality is poor. Sound separation to surround speakers is very poor. Replaced it with another brand 7.1 surround receiver. Now crystal clear sound and fantastic sound separation. One hundred times better. I would not recommend this receiver.

worst customer service ever

Billy A., Newegg
4 February 2011
  • Summary: in summery I will never buy another piece of home theater equipment from Sony. Their repair service and Quality Assurance Quality Control department needs some serious work.
  • Pros: Was nice while it worked.
  • Cons: Repair service is horrible. I took it to an approved local repair shop where they diagnosed the problem. I then waited for a back ordered board for the next three months. Sony's idea of making it better was to send me a broken replacement that wouldn't even turn on. I had to send the complete uni...

not all that it is cracked up to be

Tim K., Newegg
22 January 2011
  • Summary: If you want to bi-amp, do not buy Sony, if you want to someday stretch out, buy a unit with pre outs for external amps, say either a Onk or Den model would be worth the extra pennies.
  • Pros: Matches good with other Sony products, upconverting feature, manual set up feauture
  • Cons: does not deliver 110 x 7, see new model, the 1010, whereas now delivers only 110wx110w, on home website

Great Receiver

Barbara A. Suma, Amazon
29 August 2010
  • Summary: We bought this to replace an Onkyo. The difference was incredible. My husband and I have eyesight problems and the added feature of on-screen guide is oh so very appreciated. The quality I am getting from our speakers is noticeable. I cannot say enough to describe how impressed we are.
