Solid receiver from Sony
 
I recently had to rearrange my family room and re-run my surround speaker cables in the crown molding. Needing inspiration to finish the job I replaced my 10 year old 500 Watt 5.1 Sony receiver with this one. I am very pleased with it's performance and well inspired to finish the job. The setup was pretty easy but I'm not a fan of the new screw terminals for the speaker wires. Auto calibration with the included mic was well detailed in the manual and the difference in the sound field compared to...

Good Reciver, Not So Good Operating Instructions
 
This Sony receiver has a bountiful list of features and a pretty good sound for little investment. The package is tight, and the addition of an iPod dock, 7.2 surround, 1080p upscaling, and built in digital audio decoding make this AV receiver a star contender in the introductory home theater arena. This is a good product from Sony.

Awesome
 
note the low stars on this product are a result of people that did not have compatible external equipment.

Check your HDMI cables
 
This reciever is a lot of bang for the buck. I had some trouble with initial setup but as soon as I figured out the problem was my old HDMI cables and upgraded to HDMI v1.3 cables all worked fine and setup was pretty simple.

Really Impressed!
 
So far I am impressed with this receiver. I tried several other units (Pioneer VSX821, Denon AVR-591) using Best Buy's 30 day satisfaction policy and planned on exchanging this unit as well toward a Pioneer Elite. I just haven't found anything better for the money. It works well and has a lot of simple functions. The sound is great and the HDMI Pass Thru Standby works just as advertised. It upconverts my old composite VCR, and Component DVD player to 1080p with no effort.

Great receiver for the price.
 
I usually do alot of research before I buy a piece of electronics, but with this one I saw what it had to offer and saw the price and bought it. I am not disappointed. It is a 7.2 receiver that has all the codecs currently available, it does 3D passthrough and 1080 upconvert which I have not used yet. The setup was easy, I used the mic to calibrate then went through and adjusted everyting to fit my needs. It said that my back speaker were large when they are small. Not a big deal. Watched Tron o...

Terrific Mid-Price Receiver Easy to Use
 
I had a Sony receiver for years, but mistakenly replaced it with a Yamaha "home theatre in a box" set when we moved to the condo. After two years I couldn't stand the difference, and the subwoofer out port on the Yamaha failed. So I started over. I brought home both the new Pioneer 910 and this Sony. Being an Apple person I was intrigued by the Pioneer's Apple friendly features, but found I could already do all that with my current Airport Express set up and nifty Sony Blu-Ray player. The front ...

Nice product for the money.
 
This receiver is excellent. Especially for the money. Easy set-up with microphone. HDMI connectivity is flawless, If using HDMI especially using AutoMotion on your 120/240hz TV, the receiver's Auto-Audio Delay is surprisingly close. I opted for the custom setting of about 130ms audio delay, and it's spot-on. Much better than even the "Y" upper-level competitors. And, the menu is incredibly simple and usable. May not have every bell and whistle that you get from the $600-800 price range...

Excellent Quality for the Money
 
The bang for the buck on this receiver is extremely high. 7.2 channels with Up-conversion and 3D pass is not really seen with any other brand in this price range.
