Bottom Line:   
This was my first surround receiver($375CDN). Hats off to sony for user friendly, their product controls are always intuitive. The sound on the otherhand leaves a bit to be desired, the highs are too harsh. Music - forget it!! I recently baught a Yamaha RX-V992 on ebay(older model, new with warranty $280) I'm selling the sony.

Bottom Line:   
Got the receiver just over a year ago. Was initially pleased with it but am changing my mind lately.
It does a fine job on surround sound. It really rocks. On stereo, it really sucks. Clearity really drops around 50% volume and a strong hissing noise begins. This really sucks. Listening to loud stereo sound is really frusterating. I only play it to half volume because the hiss becomes unbearable after. I've moved to different locations and swapped wires but the sound stays.

I can't recommand this receiver fo anything but HT surround sound.

Bottom Line:   
I’m very pleased with this receiver because it has allowed me to step up to digital audio, while maintaining a good budget. I’ve had this receiver for over 6 months and I’m enjoying ever bit of it. This is an execellent entry level HT receiver. I would recommend this receiver to any one looking to get an entry level digital receiver.

Bottom Line:   
Great reciever. has lots of power and gives great response. It has lots of hook ups. including 2 optical and a hole load of others. I would recomend this to anyone who is looking for a good amp at a good price. and i could go on about the whole good speaker and cable thing like everyone else but I think they covered it all
