Summary: Loud Popping when switching inputs. So much for auto hdmi switching. Only way to fine tune sound levels is to use on screen menu which doesn't allow hear sound levels while making the adjustments. Previously models allowed this by using dials on face of unit.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this unit last year, after 2 months I could not get anu HDMI video signal output. After many connects and re-connects still no success. Returned the receiver to the store and exchanged for a newer one. After 10 months, this one is doing the same thing.
