Customer Reviews

This receiver is very easy to setup and works great.

It does take a little bit of browsing through the manual to figure out exactly how to set up the sound the way you like it, but overall I spent only a couple of hours.
Samuel David Franklin
If I turn them on in the wrong order the receiver defaults to mute status, but turning the receiver on and off solves this problem.

After much research, this is one of the only economically priced surround-sound amps that decodes the surround-sound information in the amp itself before passing video on up to the TV. Many of the HDMI switching amps out there only switch the video, and do NOT decode surround (due to the DRM encryption on some HDMI signals) only 2ch PCM.

Look over Sony's site, they have alot of good info for this unit. For the price it would be really hard to beat.

Nice Stuff:
-Surround decode from the HDMI sources
-The remote also controls my Sony Blu-ray player
-The Main L-R speaker outs are selectable to use either full range speakers, or small surround speakers
-You can Name all the inputs whatever you want
-For a small home theater, sound quality is good
-auto shut off after 30mins of inactivity

Not so nice stuff
-Only three (3) HDMI inputs, i could have used more for later, but for now all I needed was my DishNetwork box, Xbox and blu-ray
-Only one of the three digital audio inputs (2 optical, 1 coax) is programmable to any input. This would have been nice to be able to assign any of them to the remaining analog video inputs
-Analog video inputs (Wii in my case) do not go out the HDMI output. While I didn't expect this, it would have been a nice touch. As it is I have to change my TV's input to play Wii. This is no biggie, but it would have been nice!

In summary, this is a great replacement amp if you already had an older surround unit, or if you want to pick and chose your speakers. Like I said, it's nice that it has a built in selectable crossover for the main L-R speakers.

My last Sony amplifier has lasted nearly 8 years. The only reason for me to replace it was to make switching video sources easier.
There, this is my 2¢ on the matter

Overall this is a great deal for someone looking for a straight-to-the-point, entry level 5.1 system. It doesn't have an onscreen menu, or tons of HDMI ports, but for less than $200, it provides plenty of power and enough options to create an economical yet strong performance package. If you want to make your first jump to intro home theater but don't want to sweat the details, this does the job well. I would consider my setup to be a simple, economical, and practical system for someone looking for a good overall sound without getting too technical or overinvested.

I paired this receiver with an Energy RC Micro 5.1 speaker system and a 40" Sony Bravia LCD in a 14x20 room. (You could always go with cheaper speakers, but if you're going to spend extra anywhere, spend it on the speakers.) I hooked up a BluRay player, HD cable box, Wii, and an iPod dock. The receiver doesn't have lots of inputs - 1 HDMI out and 3 in (most people always want one more than what they have anyway). Extra HDMI's always help with avoiding early obsolescence, but I'm not planning on adding any other devices. If you have multiple game systems and other audio devices you're planning on adding down the road, I would move on to something more advanced. Even if you have an older DVD player, you can hook it up just fine, however HDMI will make your life much easier with this unit. (I originally started with an old compnonent DVD player and then ended up getting a BluRay player - The receiver WILL NOT send the audio through the HDMI OUT to the tv unless you hook up through the HDMI IN. You will have to send an additional audio signal such as optical if you use analog inputs).

Installation was tedious but not terribly difficult.

First off, i cant stand when people review budget receivers( >$200) and then compare them to really expensive ones with lots more features and then rate this 3 or 4 stars because of it. I am by no means saying this is the best receiver out there by giving it 5 stars, but within its class of receivers, this is a good one. It was a breeze to setup, aesthetically pleasing and great sound with decent power.

Three HDMI ports, thats something to note but plenty for me. I have the Playstation(blu ray) connected, My cable box and my tv plugged in. I have a BIC f-12 subwoofer and some bic DV64 speakers hooked up with a center channel. I couldn't be happier with the sound and features. Its simple, easy to use and doesnt have too many bells and whistles that I wouldnt use and clutter my menus.

I am by no means an expert audiophile, so my review is coming from technically savy, but audio average joe. I think this or the Deno 391 were my only options and decided since i had a lot of sony products to keep the remotes down to just 2 instead of adding a 3rd. I dont have a fancy remote that programs all the units, someday maybe.

Lastly, the AM/FM works great and the antenna gets a strong signal.

Overally, couldnt be happier and got what anyone should expect at this price. Oh one last thing, one of my speaker wires were shorting the system, the receiver has a protected mode that keeps it safe from any unsafe energy source or bad connections. To reset, hold down the power button till it says "CLEARED"
