Excellent sound and power for its class. Could use a better GUI interface.

Not very good

Anne, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I really don't like this receiver. It sounds okay, but is complicated to set up. To use a second set of speakers in another room, you cannot use the "B" speakers, they are only for high front or mid side. You need a second amp, and this receiver will only pass through analog signals and not digital to the second amp. I really miss my old Nakamichi, but it didn't have HDMI hookups.

Substantial upgrade!

Whisper, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I waited 13 years to upgrade my tuner. The last one I bought was a very nice Sony unit that had on-screen menus and control, making the need for multiple controls obsolete. Sony continues to impress with this unit. The on-screen menu is not as user friendly if you don't have an ARC TV, but you can get by without it since the rather large remote has almost all the features of every component built into the remote already.

Great Receiver - But only lasted 1.5 years

MJB "MJB", Amazon

  • Summary: I am a fan of Sony products and this receiver worked well for just over a year. It's functionality with cable tv, our ps3, and xbox 360 were fantastic. The picture (including 3D) and sound were great and the interface was straightforward. The remote is also laid out well. However, after about 15-16 months I started hearing a strange click sound every time I changed sources until after about 18 months it would no longer display a picture or sound.

Sony 7.1 receiver

TLC, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Unit must be hooked to an arc compatable hdmi tv before the gui menus can be easily used. Patch thru hdmi works well and has enough inputs for modern equipment. No phono preamp built-in for play back of vinyl. Other wise this is a solid performer for a mid-priced amp with surround 7.1 sound. FM section works well-AM section is weak except on very strong station.

Very Satisfied

jdt, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: After ten years or so with a previous Sony AV receiver, I decided to upgrade to a unit primarily for switching the HDMI signals and higher quality video output. The unit has so much functionality that it takes time to learn to use it all for other than the simple standard use. I really don't have a complaint about the unit other than it is the first Sony product that I have had that required service. After about 6 months, it lost its output.

  • Summary: Absolutely love it. Works great with blu ray and Xbox. Sound is great and the automatic settings don't need any tweaking to my ear, so less to do/more time to just listen and enjoy.

Excellent upgrade from the DG520

dwiggy, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this after a lightning storm trashed my DG520 -- and never looked back. The wattage rating difference between the 520 and the 1020 is only 10watts but the sound is so much richer it seems double the power. I thought that my problem before was the ceiling mount speakers but it was truly the inefficiency of the DG520 that lessened the entertainment experience. The auto calibration works perfectly and sets in about two minutes.
