runs 2 subs, offers 4K capabilities, and is 145W/channel, which is unusual for a unit in this price range (most are 100W/channel). The speaker equalization / optimization feature is cool, and the remote is easy to use. Icing on the cake was ABT's awesome price, less than anywhere else I found, made even better by free shipping.It was a win-win-win. If there was one downside, it might be that there aren't that many inputs, otherwise I'd recommend this unit to anyone not wanting to spend big money on a home theater receiver.

I bought this on the recommendation of a sales person because they ddn't have the one I wanted in stock. When I opened the box, I found there was only 1 piece of paper with only minuscule directions. To get detailed instructions, you have to go online and print them out and then they still aren't very clear. Once I got it setup, I had to get my son-in-law the tech engineer to do it for me, it was still difficult to understand the controls. I would not have bought this unit if the other, another brand with more bells and whistles and more detailed instructions had been available. In fact, if I still had the box, I would probably pull it all down and return it.

        Comments about Sony 5.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

        I replaced a 20-year-old surround sound receiver that finally failed. The Sony unit was priced at about $200 and would power 5 out of my 7 speakers and has line-level output for my powered subwoofer. My apartment's living room is about 12 x 15 ft. and this has plenty of power to fill this room with clean, full dynamic range sound. The user's manual, however, does not tell you that you need to use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to your TV to access screens with a wide variety of speaker adjustments and other custom settings. The user's manual also does not describe the remote control's buttons in any detail. So there's a steep learning curve to get the best out of this unit. If Sony rewrote and expanded the user's manual, I would give this unit 5 stars.

            I've been looking for a good Amp for a few months now and I'm very happy with this product. its Sony, has all the channels i need for my PC/PS4/XBOX and i can switch between all with a switch of a button. It turns itself ON when the TV turns on so i don't have to constantly grab all the remotes at the same time which is great! and Sounds amazing.

                This worked great for what I needed but the receiver goes back to TV mode when I turn it back on. Kinda annoying that I have to get up and find the receiver remote and switch it back to Sat/cable mode every time.

                Comments about Sony 5.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

                runs 2 subs, offers 4K capabilities, and is 145W/channel, which is unusual for a unit in this price range (most are 100W/channel). The speaker equalization / optimization feature is cool, and the remote is easy to use. Icing on the cake was ABT's awesome price, less than anywhere else I found, made even better by free shipping.It was a win-win-win. If there was one downside, it might be that there aren't that many inputs, otherwise I'd recommend this unit to anyone not wanting to spend big money on a home theater receiver.

                Bought this to power in-wall Dolby 5.1 speakers in the new house. Easy set up. Like the SONY "tie-in" with other products that are SONY. For example, we have a SONY Blu-Ray and TV. One press turns them on if watching a DVD movie. So, staying with the SONY "system" has been a reward. Once in a while I'll experiment but can usually get back to what I've set up pretty easily. Wish I had bought the higher model w/ built-in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth.
