Great value and well worth the price. Two tips: you need to download an app to operate the wifi setup, but no big deal. It comes with a microphone to adjust speaker volumes in the surround sound mode. Some people asked if this has an AB switch, and it does, but it won't work with the sytem set at 7.1. I have 5 speakers in my house and two in the back yard, all wired to this receiver. To get the system to work, I had to set the receiver at 5.1, with the outside speakers disconnected, then run the audio setup with the included microphone. Spent two hours with Sony customer support and they couldn't help. Had to figure it out. In 7.1 mode, the A/B/Both switch does not work. Set it up as 5.1, then connect the rear speakers, and it works. I can paly misic in the living room and back yard, or just the living room, or just the back yard. Hope this helps.

Great bang for the buck

The best thing about this receiver is all 4 HDMI inputs are HDCP 2.2 compatible, unlike most other receivers in this price range. They usually have maybe two 2.2 inputs that are 2.2
The sound far exceeds what I expected from a receiver in this prica range also.
If you're not a total audiophile, this is a great system. Setup was easy and took less than 15 minutes (after making all connections).
It has many speaker configuration settings, so you don't need to have 7 speakers and 2 subs, so you can upgrade over time.

This, like most newer receivers, it has a little more than needed for a living room unit. I would buy another of these to use on our TV room theater system when I upgrade. love the USB and Bluetooth.the remote sometimes turns on the unit with the speakers off, can't figure out why. Bluetooth does not have a long distance range, but not really a huge problem. The retail in store price is the same as you will see this unit online at any source. A little higher wattage than most units in its price range. You can't really do better than Sony on most consumer products , anyway. Unless you desperately need 7 channel Dolby, this is the best and most affordable way to go.

Bought this because of the features it had at a good price and I own a Sony TV I am pleased with.. Many in this range either do not have ARC or are not HDCP2.2 compliant, or have the cheaper spring speaker connections, etc.... Unfortunately, the left side of the display panel and certain items on the menu did not work. It sounded good, but would suddenly change the HDMI input on it's own. Returned it and decided to add a bit more money and got the Denon s720. I am pleased with my purchase of the Denon and will review it in the appropriate place..It I would not hesitate to give Sony another try in the future.

Great receiver for the budget in mind
Posted by: Klyster from: on
I purchased this receiver after I purchased a Sony uhd 65" tv. I used it to hook up my 15 yr old wired speakers. I'm in the money. Sounds brand new and has interacted with each other seamlessly.

I'm still not sure what happened.
Posted by: Manatee from: on
I bought this after upgrading my aged-out home entertainment stuff to 4K. I've owned two other Sony receivers over 17 years and they worked flawlessly...the only reason I parted with either was to upgrade. This one went two months without a problem when, out of the blue, it stopped letting a consistent signal from my PS3 pass through (no video or sound). After hours of troubleshooting I took it to Best Buy and they confirmed the issue. It was sent off for repairs but the repair facility could not duplicate the problem. They sent it back after a fresh factory data reset but when I got it back the problem remained. Sent it back a second time but, once again, the repair facility said they could not find anything wrong with it. I just don't understand what happened. I tried everything: factory reset of my TV, complete reformat of the PS3, different cable and bypass combinations, I even bought a new receiver of a different brand which I still have and is working beautifully. Everything pointed to an issue with this receiver but there was no obvious cause. I parted with the Sony and kept the other one.

Great 4K Receiver
Posted by: PaulGo from: on
Works and sounds great. It has HDCP ver 2.2 copy protection on all HDMI inputs which is needed for 4K content.

This was a great buy overall. I didn't want or need Wifi but wanted Bluetooth and 7.2. The only issue I'm having is it sometimes cuts out when switching from an HD channel to non HD. Otherwise I'm impressed w the sound and overall ease of use.

Recently we got a new 4K television. I had all my devices connected to that television just as I did my old Samsung HDTV and then the sound was fed to my old Sony 5.1 receiver via an optical audio cable. It sounded good, however every 4-5 minutes the audio would cut out and then come back on – the receiver would display a message about DTS/PCM. It didn’t matter if we were watching DirecTV, using an app on the TV (Netflix/Hulu/YouTube) or playing Xbox – regardless of the source of the video, the sound would cut in and out. After doing some research I found that the signal from the TV to the receiver was somewhat of a mismatch. The receiver didn’t have any HDMI ports on it – so the only way to get audio to it was by way of an optical audio cable. So, as we upgraded our TV, we didn’t plan on it but were pretty much forced to upgrade our receiver too. As my old Sony unit was about 15 years old and going strong, I opted to go with another Sony receiver. I will say, that when I first got everything hooked up and plugged in – turned it on, the sound was horrible. I was extremely disappointed. I spent some time going through the on screen (TV) settings menu, and found an ‘Easy setup’ menu. I plugged in the microphone that’s supposed to optimize the sound and ran through that wizard. When it was finished, it still sounded horrible. I then started going through the manual which was all but useless cause it doesn’t explain ANYTHING about the advanced settings. I found a menu to which I can change the decibel level of each speaker (2 fronts, center, 2 rears, and subwoofer) as well as manually enter an estimated distance from the optimal seat in our living room. After about 45 minutes of tinkering with this I finally have it sounding close to what my old Sony receiver sounded like. What I absolutely hate about this receiver is there is no bass/treble adjustments for the satellite speakers as there was on my old receiver. There also is no balance, however to combat this you just adjust the decibel level of each speaker. Don’t let my review steer you away cause it does sound good, but coming from an old Sony receiver to this one – you’re going to be extremely frustrated. There were a few times where I just wanted to box it up and take it back. What is severely lacking here is some sort of documentation on how to manually adjust the sound settings.
Would I recommend this to a friend? If my friend was patient and somewhat tech savvy, yeah.
Would I recommend this to my mom? Not a chance in the world – she would never be able to figure it out and would just settle for very bad sound.

works great with my new HDR tv
Posted by: BurntPopcorn from: on
hey, I recently purchased a SONY 930D 4K HDR tv. I wanted a pass through receiver, but none had the certification that said works with HDR except this one. I did not want to take a chance so I got this and it works. I have the new Samsung 4K HDR blu ray hooked up to it and it doesn't stutter. works awesome
