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. I've had quite a few Sony products over the years and I must say, they have always been reliable. This appears to confirm that impression for me.
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!
Excerpt: This receiver not only provides awesome sound, but the user interface is great as well. It has about everything you could wish for, plenty of HDMI inputs, wireless, bluetooth and more. Well worth the price!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I didn't buy from Amazon, but I had to comment and let people know that what ever issues this receiver was having it's been fixed. I love this thing. I have a Xbox one, 64" Samsung 8500 3d Plasma tv and a 3D Blu-ray player connected to it. I used the auto configure mic to set it up and have it set to the HD theater mode and it is the best sounding system I have ever owned and have ever heard anywhere. I have not had 1 issue in 3 months.
Excerpt: I returned a Yamaha receiver recently that created a constant buzzing in my speakers and found this deal for a new Sony receiver. After I received it I was blown away by all the features the Yamaha did not have. Unbeatable value.
Summary: Caught this on the gold box deal and it was only $330 which was a wonderful price. As far as I can tell it's the same as the current (1050) model with the same software when updated and it does a wonderful job. Really enjoy the past through even when you receivers is off continue to passes through the input it was on when you turned the receiver off. Terrible AM/FM; must need much better antenna. Previous Sony(1998) best had a blue light when in DTS or 5.1.
Summary: Have had this A/V Receiver for 2 months and am happy to say i have had NO problems. Purchased this on Amazon running a one day sale. No issues on the HDMI complaints that others have had. Sound is beautiful WIFI perfect. Fantastic remote. Soooo easy to set up. Did come with a full manual.
I absolutely love, the Bluetooth connectivity is very quick and easy
