Requires being unplugged

 

I've read reviews of people having the same power issue I'm having (see cons) and apparently a firmware update resolves this known issue. However - I bought this unit to sit in my pool house and power some bose 151 outdoor speakers and it really sounds...

looks brand new ; great sound paired with BOSE 151se environmental speakers

i've noticed when system goes into standby when no input is detected it will not power back on using both power button and remote.. Only way to bring back to life is to unplug device and re-plug. PIA cause you lose all your settings each time

Defies First Law of Thermodynamics

 

For a few bucks less (about $15 total) you can get pretty much the same amp on E bay. For a few bucks more you can get a 5.1 reciever.

200 W input power yields 270 W output!!! I wish the rest of the world worked that way. Hats off to Sony Engineers

As with all Sony recievers be careful as output is never adequately protected and power section will blow. Be careful with speakers

Legendary Sony Quality & Design

 

This is a straight forward, no frills 2-channel receiver IMO, the power rating spec is conservative, which is typical for Sony products. More than enough clean power for home use no matter the room size. I would recommend this unit to friends. Matter...

Good, solid, basic

 

Not many 2 channel stereo receivers around anymore yet that's all most of us need. This one does the job easily, without, with as many connections as you're likely to need and an uncluttered interface.

Great Receiver for my shop

 

I was looking for a receiver for my shop at a decent price and this fit the bill. I am only using two speakers but may want to up to four. I like the A/B speaker selection so I can either select A or B or both. The sound is good the reception is good...

good price, nice sound and features

It is rather large
