Wonderful Receiver, Lacks Video In/Out
Comments about Sony 2 Channel Stereo Receiver:
This receiver works seamlessly with my Sony SS-F5000 speakers, however, this unit lacks video in/out connections. This unit is really intended for audio purposes only, which is what you'll get for $150. Great deal otherwise! -Luke
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Replaced my12 year old Sony Receiver
from Oviedo, Fl
There wasn't anything wrong with it except for the remote not working. We decided to replace it with the same updated model. N ow we have a second audio system and the new remote works with both. Its a great receiver.
SONY ALWAYS THE BEST
from Las Vegas
Nice to have wonderful music from great equipment. Planning my next purchase for upgrade of my system.
Versitile, Reliable and User-Friendly
from Westchester, NY
I use this receiver to select and amplify audio input from my HD radio tuner, DVD player, computer, and TV. I send the selected audio to speakers in the same room and to a second receiver in a different room. Often I do this using the remote from bed in the dark. This SONY receiver facilitates all these tasks with only moderate effort on my part. The sound produced is smooth and strong. Editing the LED input name display allows me to quickly check the input source. The receiver remote can be set to control other SONY devices such as the DVD player. With all its capacities, the price of the receiver seems very reasonable.
from Orlando FL
While shopping for this receiver i specifically asked the sony sales person whether this receiver could decode and receive digital HD radio. He passed the question to tech support who confirmed it would. On receipt I found it does not. since I had an old HD converter (I wanted to get rid of the extra device) I kept the receiver. It does what it it does but I was misinformed by the tech and sales support. I should have returned it - my bad.
from Park Hill, OK
am/fm receiver works very well, and gives a good sound from the system.
It does what I wanted it to do!
from Downey, CA
I wanted a basic stereo to do nothing but play the radio and CDs on occasion. It does exactly what I want it to do. No frills!

Best sound system I've ever owned
I've heard both my wonderful, resonant Sony and a Bose system in my house and to me Sony's sound is many, many times better than Bose's.
OK for the price
from Pittsburg, Ca
Bought this for my backyard/pool area. Reception very good for am/fm. Have it hooked up to kicker outdoor speakers, sounds good but lacks loundness bass. Love the iphone/pod plug in the back along with my xm radio. But still lacks that umph factor from the old time amps with the loundness button.

Big Bang for the Buck
from Dallas, TX
Paired with nice speakers and enjoying brilliant quality. Amp can pack a punch and maintain fidelity over a broad spectrum. Vinyl through this amp puts a sentimental smile on my face. Using reference headphones and sound is superb. Also, it appears Sony did a fine job of selecting the proper capacitors to deliver the best quality possible in this price range. I might have considered a product with this power at twice the price.
