Summary: A breeze to set up, compared to earlier models! The integrated monitor/TV onscreen menu allows for configuration and fine tuning with ease. All my components (gaming consoles/satellite/etc) are connected HDMI with UHD and 3-D pass through.
Avoid if Interested in Airplay or Bluetooth! An Exercise in Utter Frustration!!!

Summary: A lot of other reviews go into much further depth regarding all of the features of this A/V Receiver. As I bought mine specifically because of its Airplay and Bluetooth connectivity features, I will base my review mainly on those.
Summary: This turned out to be a GREAT receiver. It seemed the DN1050 was a DOWNGRADE from this and even better, with the release of the DN1050, this was a hundred buck cheaper. To bad these are NOW hard to find.
Summary: I bought this because my 3 year old receiver got fried by a power surge. Clearly, the technology has advanced quite a bit in those 3 years. This unit is great and the cost of it was pretty much equivalent to the cost of repairing the fried Yammer.
A GREAT receiver that MANY rejoice over and FEW struggle with

Summary: I read about the HDMI "handshake" issues AFTER I bought this receiver. I then too experienced this problem. Then I read the manual correctly. Under the EXTREMELY WELL designed GUI is a setting to change "HDMI input selection speed". It has the settings "OFF" and "Auto".
Summary: Got this unit 3 months ago to upgrade from an old Optimus Dolby Pro-logic receiver. This receiver has performed perfectly since I installed it. No HDMI issues at all w/ my Samsung cable box, SONY Bravia TV or BD player.

Summary: Works well, sounds good, but the device is still very warm even when completely off. There are some auto-on features that keeps the device ready-to-go and swallows juice while it waits, so I turned off every feature so that the device could finally go to sleep and to stop producing heat (eating...
Summary: Very easy operation and outstanding sound quality. Most of our audio now streams via Bluetooth from iPhones and this has been well beyond expectations. Sound quality is well-balanced. I'm really happy we bought it!
Good receiver but No internet music streaming service!

Summary: I bought this unit on june 2014, mainly for its Internet radio capabilites. I was very happy and worked perfect for 2 months. On September 2014 Sony stopped providing Internet music streaming. The receiver works fine and has very good audio.
