  • Solid receiver
    Reviewed by Linksys - May 2, 2018

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] With a good amount of features and a solid build this is a nice receiver. I have it hooked up to a set up Kef Kht 5001 speakers and am very happy with the sound. With 4K HDR pass through and 4hdmi in you can have this be the hub of your home theatre connected to your 4K tv and not lose the picture quality. The Bluetooth connection with your iPhone or iPad is seamless and you can also turn the receiver on from the app. I’d like to see banana plug connections for all speakers and air play but those would be the two negatives for me. For people that have space constraints and don’t have the biggest budget to work with I think it’s a good value.

  • Good entrypoint for 4k dolby atmos.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by stub - November 9, 2020

    The on device screen is a little small and there is no way, that I have found, to pause it's scroll. I will also say that the mode you need to use for most things including Dolby Atmos and most surround is oddly named "Multi Stereo", and in some section of the manual this setting is described as outputting stereo sound to all speakers. with a little digging I have found that this setting is basically the "auto detect" setting that outputs whatever encoding the device is sending it. I would have liked to see dedicated buttons for each input instead of the dial, but I guess I don't use the on device button enough for this to be a deal breaker.

  • Read Sony “Help Guide”
    Reviewed by Customer - August 20, 2018

    With two ELAC Debut 2.0 B 6.2 bookshelf speakers (only these) music and TV sound great, but stereo is not evident. Addition of an ELAC Debut C6.2 center speaker improves stereo effect, and dialog, but voices are less natural. With a center speaker (or subwoofer) only some so-called “sound fields” allow these speakers to participate. As “sound fields” are the only control one has over equalization, the tailoring of frequency response is limited. In general, a prospective buyer should consult the Sony on-line Help Guide (found at https://docs.sony.com/release//Help_4731211111.pdf) and learn the details of “sound fields” and speaker responses.
