Good features; Bad quality and user interface

MEDAN, Costco
27 January 2015
  • Summary: Receiver sounded good w/ my Bose Acoustimass 10 speakers. For the price, it had very good features (WiFi, HDMI inputs). However, the remote / user interface was very non-intuitive (I'm an engineer and work with computers / programs all day).
  • Pros: sound quality hdmi inputs hdmi bypass wifi
  • Cons: buzzing noise in standby generates a lot of heat in standby confusing user interface confusing remote

Mind the limitations!

C. Null "Null", Amazon

  • Summary: Great audio quality, and plenty of hookups (7.2 sound, a jillion HDMI ports). But mind these limitations: > No HDMI upconverting. So you'll have to connect two video cables to your TV if you have an old analog source. > The remote is not universal.

Maybe a defected unit.

Jack L., Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I've just purchased this unit and it arrived yesterday. I set it up and it's running pretty smoothly. The settings are easy to setup, the instruction manual is pretty detailed and easy to understand. This makes my speakers (Polk Audio 75t) sound lively.

lots of potential, with room to grow

Dennis, Amazon

  • Summary: I am very happy with this receiver. The only down side I have found is an annoying pop up that happens when turning up sound or any kind of adjustment made to it while watching TV or playing video Games. I am back to give better advice after using this product for some time.

Great features, good sound, but annoying 'gotchas'

G Brown, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: We love the sound quality, it allows excellent manual control of all speakers, and the networking and bluetooth features are cool. I have five annoyances that justify the three stars. 1) 'Pass through' doesn't work for us.

Great receiver but noisy!

ML "ML", Amazon

  • Summary: Just got the recover to replace an ancient ES receiver. While the build quality is not as good the features and sound quality are great. The only thing that bothers me about this u it however is the Audible low pitch hum it emits. Never had this issue with my old receiver.

Caveat emptor

Edward Balder, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Ok... this is a very good receiver. It works well and functions well. Sound is very good and the sound fields are great. Howerver, do not think that because it has bluetooth, Airplay, 4k, BluRay, etc that you are getting all the connectivity that you might think you are getting.

habe mehr von SONY erwartet...

skygirl, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • Summary: im Großen und Ganzem bin ich mit dem Reciever nicht zufrieden. Schachpunkte, die aufgefallen sind: - Brummen - Lange Zeit bis das Receiver nach dem Einschalten überhaupt Töne ausgibt (ca. 10 sekunden) - Das Menü ist unübersichtlich und nicht unbeding selbsterklärend.

Bluetooth connection missing

Eliel Wagner Faber, Amazon
4 December 2014
  • Summary: This specific device available in Germany does NOT have bluetooth built in connection. The SAME model in another countries, like EUA, UK, has it. In fact, on Sony.de website, the product page shows a big picture where you can see bluetooth button.

Licht und Schatten - sagt ein Laie....

Schelli, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Ich bin von meinem 5 Jahre alten Onkyo TX-NR616 umgestiegen, da Onkyo die gesamte Baureihe mit billigsten Bauteilen vergeigt hat (minutenlanges Warten auf Bild und Ton, ein bekanntes Problem).
