Summary: I love this thing so much. Everyone that comes to visit wants one. I am not a techie but I know quality sound when I hear it. My husband set it up and it is easy for me to use. Love it. Get one.
Summary: This unit has tons of power. Rocks my BIC America dv64's. Also love that it uses the PLiiZ sound codec. Dolby doesn't make receivers with iiZ anymore and that makes me sad because that is how my room is setup. Now they are opting for the Dolby atmos...
Okay Receiver-Great Amp-Connections-Bad GUI and Internet Access

Summary: Pros: Little distortion and lots of inputs. Good amp and auto mic setup for movies. Auto adjust for powered sub-woofers. Compatible with Roku3. Centralized HDMI setup works. Don't Know: Bluetooth. Cons: GUI interface. Seldom works for internet. Gets confused. Then, I get confused.
Summary: I purchased a massive $1600 Onkyo PR SC855 pre-amp in about 2008. That was coupled with a Carver Sunfire Cinema Grand 5 channel amp, and at one time powered a dedicated home theater that was the envy of all my friends.
It's a great unit if you can handle the size of the remote.

Summary: Excellent piece of equipment for the money. Two cons would be that the Remote is HUGE and the other is that the menus are primitive with no graphics. The sound is great, it works great with me Blue-ray Player, Laptop, and TV. I am not sure how well it works with Mobile devices yet.

Summary: The remote on this thing is so complex you need a masters degree to use it. I only have a bachelors in Computer Science so it's beyond me. If you press the wrong button, the whole thing can go south and you have to do a factory reset to use it again. Come on! Also one of the inputs went dead on me.
Summary: Really like this A/V receiver. Very flexible with lots of capability. Easily integrates with other components, especially other Sony products. I use the second zone to feed an amp for playing music on on my patio and game room.
