Underwhelmed

Nando5755, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a longtime Onkyo supporter, but went with this receiver recently. Good reviews from www.Hometheater.com which i also subscribe to. Generally their word is gospel and they highly recommended this. I read the review twice, did my homework and purchased. My take is different than other reviewers, first I needed a Zone 2 for my deck speakers.

Good AV with Bad Features

Hadi Bayat-pour "khosrowbp", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this unit based on the two earlier models of Sony that I had, reviews on Amazon, warranty and number of Sony retailers in Washington Metropolitan area. Some other manufacturers don't have retailers and do not offer the same warranty. The basic receiver which for years has been carried from one model to another is excellent. With a couple of JBL receivers the quality of sound is more than satisfactory (I don’t have a cinema sound system).

Great working receiver, terrible GUI

P. Cogan, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: I enjoyed using this receiver while I had it, it had a great sound and very fast speaker calibration setup. My biggest complaint after using it for a couple of days was the enormous remote with so many unnecessary buttons, yet it doesn't have dedicated number buttons (you have to have "shift" pressed to use numbers).

As expected for price range

Mario Velazquez, Amazon

  • Summary: Its a decent receiver. How many times can we say the GUI sucks? Well count this as one more because it is truly horrific. Not the best receiver I've ever owned but it does get the job done and has some decent features to boot (wifi and blue tooth built in are a huge plus.) one thing that you should know however is that for some asinine reason it comes out of the box with auto volume on. WHY?!

Buzz from faulty power transformer?

Andy, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: Original post (Sept 16, 2012) The receiver is great, though my one issue is a buzz from the unit itself (not the speakers)-- After my unit is plugged into power for a few minutes it emits a relatively loud buzzing noise. The buzz is present in stand-by mode as well as when turned on, even when it's connected to *nothing* but power (no speakers, no inputs nor outputs).

Eigentlich gut, aber...

jackD, Amazon

  • Summary: wie viele andere kann ich nur Zustimmen: Umständliches, grauenhaftes Menü, unterirdisches Display und üble Bedienungsanleitung! Habe immer noch nicht raus wie ich ohne Monitor gespeicherte internetradiosender öffnen kann!

Gut und Böse dicht beieinander!!

Erika Mustermann, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: Das Gerät wurde vor 2,5 Wochen umgehend geliefert. Der Ablauf über Amazon war perfekt. Das Gerät selbst würde ich normalerweise mit 4,5 Sternen bewerten. Was mir fehlt ist, dass das Gerät nicht in der Lage ist mir den eingestellten Internetsender am Display anzuzeigen. Vielleicht habe ich aber irgend etwas nicht noch nicht entdeckt. Damit bin ich aber auch schon beim Ärgernis. Die Firma Sony ist anscheinend nicht in der Lage eine umfassende Beschreibung beizulegen.

Klang und Optik super - Menü dagegen katastrophal!

T. Wirtz, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: Nur kurz und vorab für alle, die erst "AirPlay" lesen und mit Apple nichts anfangen können, da ihre Telefonie oder Tablets mit Android laufen: Im Play-Store gibt es die "Network Audio Remote" von Sony. Die ist zur Bedienung dieses Receivers quasi PFLICHT, da sämtliches, was sonst so an Zusatzfunktionen drin steckt, schlicht UNBEDIENBAR ist.
