Exactly what we needed

  • Excerpt: Had our receiver go down for a small movie theatre viewing space that we own. Ordered this and it came quick. Was a basic swap and plug in job. Everything on this unit was intuitive and it sounds great. We have no complaints about this unit.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls

Best money in 30 years

  • Summary: Best money I have spent in 30 years. The 7.1 sound through my Polk audio speakers is just great and the stereo splitting into 7.1 really pulls you in to the sound field like you wouldn't believe. Must be heard to be believed. Lol I have started listening to my entire collection all over again.
  • Pros: Enveloping sound field! Easy to set up with supplied microphone Price point is great for this sound quality Easy to use on screen controls
  • Cons: On screen controls a little glitchy sometimes Next to no information on what all the settings are all about Relied on Internet to find out more about what is what.

Network dead

  • Summary: For 6 months unit worked fine and now will not connect to the WiFi. Looks like the network card is dead. Will not recognize the access point in the house even though all other unites (iPad, etc.) work great. Sending it back for repair, which is probably going to be a nightmare.
  • Pros: Works great when it was working.
  • Cons: Poor reliability with network card.

  • Summary: Very impressed overall. Great sound for a receiver. Great user interface. Loaded with features. Reliable (which after a few less than reliable Onkyos I no longer take for granted).
  • Pros: Great sound for a receiver. All the features you could ask for (save perhaps AirPlay display). Price is right. UI is very well done.
  • Cons: None really.

Great home theater receiver

RustyF, Crutchfield
28 May 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this Sony to replace a Denon AVR-1708 used in a bedroom. I am running a 5.1 setup with 5 Harmon Kardon cube type speakers and a Polk PSW108 sub. The package arrived as promised and in good condition. The swap out was very easy - took less that 20 min.
  • Pros: Great sound. lots connection options. I hooked up an older VCR to view old family gathering and the picture OK but it played. The features were what I was looking for in this price point. I really like the Yamaha receivers and got this one to try something different... I'm keeping this one! If yo...
  • Cons: poor remote - they need to come up with something better. I thought the remote for my Sony blue ray was bad but this one is worse.

So far so good!

Anonymous, Crutchfield
18 May 2015
  • Summary: This unit is replacing a 13 year old Sony unit that was starting to have issues with the center channel speaker connection. It had a good run, and wasn't really worth paying to repair it. Setup was a breeze, and certainly had a lot more options to configure compared to my old unit.
  • Pros: Easy setup, good features, price
  • Cons: none so far

AIRUPSER, Crutchfield
10 May 2015
  • Summary: This receiver gives a much more pleasurable listening experience than my Marantz SR6008 did. I'm very happy that the HDMI on that model has stopped working after only a year. Even though the Marantz has a parametric style EQ, this Sony sounds much better in my opinion and is a total powerhouse.
  • Pros: Apple AirPlay/wattage/sound
  • Cons: That I didn't purchase it earlier and went with overpriced junk.
