    Comments about Sony Black 7.2 Channel AV Receiver:

    This is the third sony receiver I have purchased, and it is by far my favorite (the others were my old STR-DH500 and an STR-DH520 I purchased for my parents). This is a powerful receiver at an entry-level price, you can't beat it. I love the practical feature set - they included genuinely useful things that are really hard to find at this price point (automated speaker setup with an included mike, receiver volume overlay on the TV screen even on non-Sony TV's), and saved money by leaving out features that aren't terribly useful for most people. I mean, come on, who needs an AVR with network access when practically every Blu-ray player and many TV's already have it?

    Overall, this is an excellent choice for a non-audiophile who still wants lots of power. Also, the fact that this receiver will display its volume level (via HDMI overlay) on a non-sony TV (I have a samsung) is extremely useful for those doing installations where the receiver is hidden in a closet or cabinet.

    Service and delivery comments:

    First time buying from Abt, was favorably impressed. The item was packaged very well, and arrived quickly. Will shop here again.

      Comments about Sony Black 7.2 Channel AV Receiver:

      I had an old Sony receiver STR915 model that was outdated. I use to be a big supporter of Sony but after the failure of a blu ray player and tv I had my doubts, but this receiver has a lot of bang for the buck. Several HDMI ports and two digtal optical ports make hooking up the sytem a breeze. On screen TV set up and sound set up mic complement the ease of setup.
      It is a huge upgrade over last years model still sold else where. ABT is a great place to buy from and there costumer help is top notch.

      Only have had it for a few weeks but I love everything about this unit. It is almost like Sony went on where the technology in my old receiver left off.
