Summary: I think this is probably a good receiver if you get one that isn't a lemon, but if you have any problems don't depend on SONY to fix them for you, at least not without a major hassle. I bought this in early 2013.
Summary: I have to say one of the most convoluted manuals I've ever read for setting up a receiver, but on to bigger problems. Could not figure out a way to change radio channels without turning on the tv and using the remote, called Sony, they said that's the way it is!
Bad batch? Bought two of these in not correctly fuctioning condition

Summary: Let me make this as simple as possible. I hate leaving one star review for this receiver which I thought would be a 5 star product. I bought one of these from eBay around 6 weeks ago and I had 2 different problems with it.
Summary: I bought this AVR as a replacement for my Onkyo NR609 which stopped sending video to the TV, a common flaw so I've heard. It was just out of warranty so I decided to head to Costco as they have a long warranty and I wouldn't get burned again.
Summary: I started out looking for an upgrade to my Kenwood HTiB receiver I purchased in the late 90s. The Kenwood system has been an incredible value, but it doesn't have HDMI inputs with passthrough so I've had to hook up most components into my HDTV and then output the audio from the TV to the receiver.
Summary: Bought this from Soteluk sent it back for repair after 3 months and they refused to repair it saying it was damaged in the post without supplying evidence for me see. They never returned my postal fee either despite saying they would. And the machine...well that just disappeared.
Summary: Hallo zusammen, abgeschreckt durch schlechte Bewertungen der Bedienoberfläche im Vorgängergerät STR DN1020 war ich zunächst skeptisch, aber in anderen Internet Rezensionen hieß es die Oberfläche sei verbessert worden.
