Summary: I bought this unit from Onecall (website not ebay) on 7/5/11, Since then I have had to send it to the Sony repair center twice. The HDMI ports stop working.I've had many Sony products in the past and never had issues till this model, I'm also not to happy with having to send it to Texas 5 months after it was repaired to repair it for the same issue.
Summary: Solid receiver with plenty of power. Went to this from an aging Sony ES receiver and I was slightly worried about taking a hit in the quality department. But it's been 2 months and I'm very pleased. I like the clean nearly button-free exterior and the fact that it's setup with all the latest formats including 3D. I would like to see Sony enhance the on-screen menu though, it's clunky and very poorly designed.
Summary: The product is very good and the price-quality ratio exceeded my expectations. 100% recommended I chose it for its price and because it is a brand that has very good components. It comes with many new things that far exceeds other similar products.
Horrible instructions and set up procedures...sounds great when done.

Summary: The unit sounds great. I am extremely unimpressed with how complicated it was to set up and is to navigate through menus. VERY VERY NON user friendly. I have been told Sony has a language and format almost their own... I have avoided Sony for YEARS because I believe they have been getting by on name only. The reason I bought this product was the price and it had a high rating. There were several complaints regarding the setup which I ignored..
Good value, good features, average sound quality, Ipod dock discontiued

Summary: I purchased this to downsize my system in our kitchen, and simplify things for my wife. For the price, it has a good number of featurs, including auto HDMI 3.1 switching. Whatever component that is on is automatically selected and signal is sent to TV and Audio (ie Computer, DVD, Blu Ray).Previously I was using a Lexicon MC-1 preamp and Rotel RB-985 amp,and you can definately hear the difference.
