Avoid if Interested in Airplay or Bluetooth! An Exercise in Utter Frustration!!!

A. Taylor "Music Addict & Tech Junkie", Amazon

  • 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.

There is an issue with this product. Reviews of not working are valid.

  • Summary: i had to return this because it wouldn't put out any sound. When I first set it up, it worked for 5 min then stopped. I tried everything in terms of restarts and power removal. Swapped for a Pioneer in the same exact setup and what do you know, it worked perfect.

  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER. After reading the bad reviews where people had issues with defective units, I almost did not order this model, but then I did because I figured that the one I ordered would be fine... Well, it wasn't.

Malfunctioned in 2 days… TWO DAYS!!!!

JOJ POL, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: Out of the box, the receiver worked flawlessly. GUI is nice and auto-calibration delivered better audio quality than my failed Denon 1911. One thing I think Sony could have included on the remote is speaker level adjustment on the fly without having to go through the menu.

  • Summary: While its features and inputs combined with airplay and ios remote are fun perks, its major shortcoming is that there are definite HDMI issues. See the Sony forum; many users are having the same problem.

Too Many Issues with HDMI

Pipemajor, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Read a glowing review of this AVR on another technical site and I desperately needed an HDMI-capable AVR which could support my HDTV and the lossless audio formats currently offered on Bluray disks - Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio which only work on HDMI.

Just doesn't cut it (should be zero stars)

Anonimaus "anonimaus", Amazon

  • Summary: I have often liked Sony, even with their quirks and "ideas" how a product should work. I have had some amazingly good products from them in the past. This isn't one of them. If someone suggests buying this, look at them and realize the are not your friend.
