A fine unite but woeful documentation

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

There is almost nonexistent set up information. For example, you are not told that in order to set up the radio capability you must first connect the unit to a TV set. Otherwise you cannot program FM or AM stations. This is a very important step and should really be documented carefully. If it was not for this fact I would have given the unity a 5 Star review because it works very well.

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

Love the fact the ability to hook my HDMI products to the radio itself with one cord going to the tv and it does NOT require the radio to be on if you choose to use your HDMI product without it being in stereo.
