Strength:

price, power, bass boost

Weakness:

runs very hot, started to hear crackling

Let me start by saying this is not a dolby digital reciever and therefore should only be rated as a dolby pro logic reciever. Back in its era this was a decent reciever especially for its price. It delivers 100w to each channel and can put out some good bass. The system does run very hot when ran for longer than 5 hours. I have also just recently heard some crackling from fronts/rears but what more can i expect from a three year old piece of electronics.
After listening to alot of new recievers to upgrade my system i can appreciate how much better dolby digital/dts sounds and it wont be long before i upgrade but i dont think it will another Sony as their new models have been slaughted by their reviewers.

I think i will be buying Marantz now..

Similar Products Used: Other Sony's, Marantz, Yamaha although all current models

This mid-range Pro-Logic receiver served me well before I moved to Dolby Digital and DTS. It has all the goodies for a receiver of its category (Pro_logic, DSP, surround effects, bass boost). All these features were fine for a pre-digital receiver, but this reciver lacked some features that were already standard in similar receivers: no real sub-woofer output, hissing noises in pro-logic mode and ocassional crackling noises in the rear surround speakers also on Pro-Logic mode. Much better ourput on Stereo mode than on surround Pro-Logic.Good for the price and for its period; totally obsolete by 1999 standards.
