5.1

 

So pleased I purchased this. The set up couldn't be easier and the sound is superb.

My problem. My woofer is wired and the receiver uses RCA plugs so I'm looking for a replacement woofer.

Just what I was looking for.

 

New to multi media receiver, so took a while to get a hang of set up with all my devices, but in the end I am very happy with the quality of this unit. It powers my high end towers I'd stored for too long in the garage. Now I can enjoy them along with...

Price and power are great for my needs. Easy visual menu for modifying setting on screen. Powers my towers just as I had hoped

Gets hot! Will be good heater in winter months. (I guess that's sort of a positive.)

Great price

It does what it is supposed to do. Includes calibration microphone and has the all the inputs and outputs I need - HDMI inputs and output, front/middle/subwoofer, composite. I haven't used the USB port. I don't need a network connection. The auto input...

The documentation both printed and onscreen is very meager. You are pretty much on your own to figure out what behavior to expect from various settings.

Quality Sony product

 

Sony always puts out the best products, this is why I'm a long time loyal fan. I'm enjoying my new Sony surround sound. And I love the fact that you can adjust each speaker independently...if the dialogue is too loud you can lower the volume of the...
