Set up was easy.

Note: If you use a Tivo HD with this amp, the code for on/off, mute, and volume is 1176 which is not listed as part of the Sony remote codes on Tivo.

It has a lot of features that can be confusing at first, but if you spend a little time with the manual you should be able to figure it out.

I read the two negative reviews with apprehension when I bought this product. However, I took the advice of an amazon supervisor and gave it a shot. HDMI pass through works great on audio and video, even though the instructions in the manual are confusing by showing other configurations. I recommend hooking up all hdmi cables from the quick set-up sheet and ignore other configurations in the manual. Also, I did not perform the speaker callibration.

Set up was more difficult because I use an A/B configuration. My indoor speakers run on A, then I switch off the front indoor and switch on my outdoor speakers using front B. Support from Sony was not the best and I had to call back several times. Tech support associates assumed everything was ready, repeating the company line about automatic detection but that's not entirely accurate. Here's the scoop, Sony sets these receivers up for basic home theater use and specialized options, like A/B, will likely require amp menu changes. Also, older equipment like tv's etc may require changes and/or loss of function like the theater button (which is not a big deal for me because I like to manually choose my sound using sound field on the remote). I just don't understand why A/B isn't turned on automatically at the factory, or why they didn't make A/B turn on automatically if speakers were attached to the B channel, now that would be auto detection!

Here's the deal if you are running A/B configuration you need to use the amp menu button on your remote, select speaker pattern, using up and down in the center controls of remote and choose 3/2.1 plus the middle bullseye for enter. Now SB assign is no longer grayed out and you can turn on B, also under the amp menu speaker option.

I haven't seen this in the comments, so I thought I'd pass this on. I was looking forward to eliminating all the component, coax, and fiber cables and going with HDMI from my Tivo HD and a Sony Blu-Ray player. I can do this as long as I select HDMI 1 -3.

However if I want to use the Assign feature to assign HDMI1 to the BD input or HDMI3 to the SAT input, only the video will be switched not the audio. In order to get the audio, you have to run a coax cable from the Blu-ray player and a fiber cable from Tivo to the BD and Sat inputs. A note on Sony's website confirms this.

The manual is confusing because on page 25 it states: "Be sure to change the initial setting of the HDMI 1-3 input button on the remote so that you can use the button to control your components." Later it says that the HDMI buttons cannot be changed.

Other than not being able to pass HDMI audio through the BD and SAT assignments, the amp works fine.

Note: If you use a Tivo HD with this amp, the code for on/off, mute, and volume is 1176 which is not listed as part of the Sony remote codes on Tivo.

Well, not quite DOA. I was looking for an entry level 7.1 system and normally avoid Sony products like the plague. Well, this receiver had decent power at 105w X7, had DD+, DD5.1, DD-EX, DTS-HD, DTS, DTS-ES 6.1 matrix and discrete, DD PLII, PLZ, PLX, 3 HDMI inputs, and 3D support. Basically it had mostly every feature you could need and all the decoders you could ever want at 199.99. When comparing this to the 810 and Onkyo's entry level 7.1 receiver it was clear this one was the one to go with. I read all the reviews there were only a couple bad ones and the complaints seemed to be based around people not being able to plug in analog cables and output their signals through HDMI (which I have no use for that feature which by the way is on the Sony 810).

I received the receiver, hooked up my speakers but because I forgot to label the speaker wire for the rear channels I had to use the test tone to figure out if they were connected right and if not how I needed to switch them to make sure they were set up right. The test tone worked so I turned off the receiver, re-wired the speakers, turned the receiver back on then the test tone wouldn't work. The manual said that if the test tone didn't work then either the wiring wasn't secure or the neg/pos were crossed. This receiver has tiny speaker inputs so if you have even semi-big gauge wire it won't fit cleanly. I rewired my speaker cables, I re-stripped them thinking they just needed to be fresh, I electric-taped anywhere on the cable that had exposed wire. I did an immaculate job on the wiring, let the receiver sit over night unplugged thinking it needed to reset, and also did the system reset thinking maybe it was in protect mode (which the receiver's display never said it was). It still wouldn't work.

Purchased this receiver recently. It has a lot of features that can be confusing at first, but if you spend a little time with the manual you should be able to figure it out.
The receiver has very nice sound, plenty of inputs and different sound configurations.
I bought it on sale for about $200 and for the price it's a great deal.
Negative reviews I've read don't seem to be giving this receiver a fair shot.
