its a reciver

Jessica V., Newegg
26 March 2016
  • Pros: it works so far.. haven't had it long to know much about it. The usb port either doesn't support usb drives or doesn't support MP3 one of the most common audio/music formats; or my receiver is defective.
  • Cons: the usb port doesn't seem to have any kind of use, unless you own a smart phone. =/

Handshake issues...

DLuce76, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: Works well...when it works. Took a gamble and ended up with the dreaded HDMI handshake issues, even after updating firmware. Not satisfied with the "restart the system" recommendations by Sony to get it to work.

Get something else.

Blackjack, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Sounds good, but the stereo turns off when I am in the middle of playing bluetooth music (even though auto-off is turned off) uses a lot of power (and is still very warm) even when completely off without any standby-functions turned on.

Good receiver but No internet music streaming service!

Claudio Salamanca, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • 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.

The unit does not transmit audio over the HDMI to the second zone.

David P. Mays, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: I have a TV for the second zone. The unit does not transmit audio over the HDMI to the second zone or the primary zone for that matter. I have a stereo in the main room and it works great. But, going to the second room, NO sound. That's no good.

Don't buy. Customer Service is no help.

  • Summary: Sounds is good as you would expect. Keeps going to standby mode and Sony is no help after waiting almost an hour. Would not recommend. I had thought I was upgrading.

Hdmi failure

Top Jimmy, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for a receiver with 2 hdmi outs. That limited my choices. After looking at an onkyo and a pioneer I settled on the sony. Largely because I was at best buy and it was on sale. It had great features. The Bluetooth worked seamlessly with my android phone.

High STANDBY power usage

Aaron Simon, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I picked up this receiver from the local electronics store (it was the same price as Amazon) after extensive reading of online reviews. And in most ways, it seemed like a very good receiver. However, it has, in my opinion, extremely high power draw in standby mode. So back to the store it went.
