With everything from Blu-Ray players to cable boxes coming with HDMI outlet connections now we wanted a receiver that could handle all of them. This one does with enough HDMI inputs for our needs. The only quirky feature is the audio/video signal pass-through. If you turn off the Blu-Ray after viewing a movie and just want to watch TV without the receiver on the pass-through does not automatically kick in when you turn off the Blu-Ray and the receiver. You must turn off the receiver and the Blu-Ray, then turn the receiver back on and then off again. After turning off the second time the pass-through works as it should. Its a little strange but I'm happy we are able to get it to work.

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.

great receiver but...

By 

from Undisclosed

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

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.

Excellent 4K 5.1 A/V Receiver Value

By

About Me Movie Enthusiast, Practical

Pros

  • Accurate Controls
  • Easy To Set Up
  • Good Power Output
  • Good Remote Control
  • Great Sound Quality

Cons

  • could use more inputs

Best Uses

  • Basic Systems
  • Home Theater

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.

SONY 5.2 Ch A/V Receiver does what its well

By 

from 27587

Comments about Sony 5.2 Channel 4K Black A/V 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.

Respectable 5.2 channel receiver

By 

from Sacramento, CA 95818, USA

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

Receiver does a good enough job of delivering the impact and detail one would expect from high resolution audio formats. The FM tuner leaves a little to be desired, but none-the-less, it does it's job. Overall, if you have a BluRay player of TV with networking already (Wi-Fi), this is a GREAT non-networked receiver and will perform well above it's modest price tag!

Great Small Home Theater Hub

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT 84124, USA

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

After about 4 months of use, I am very happy with this receiver. I'm running a DVD payer, Direct TV sound, a turntable (with its own pre-amp) and a Wii with HDMI adapter through it, and they all work great and sound fabulous. I use it for listening to MP3s thru the front USB jack also. Very nice! I have a great pair of vintage Pioneer speakers for fronts, a Polk Audio center channel speaker and a pair of Polk Audio flush mounts in the ceiling for rears. Recently added a Pyle 12-inch Sub run off a 150 watt plate amp in the ceiling. Now I can rock the house at real rock concert volume and the sound is tight and undistorted. Great for movies, music, Wii games or standard TV.

Great Unit, good buy !

By 

from Naperville, IL 60564, USA

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

I bought this unit to replace a Sony STRAV1070. It really simplified my cabling. I hooked it to my Sony Bravia flat screen and used a Phillips power strip that had a feature that would turn on the Bose powered speaker system when it sensed the amp had turned on. Now I have it all controlled by my Comcast remote through the HDMI. Awesome!
