2 out of 5 eggs Okay, but lacking features 11/23/2013

This review is from: Sony STR-DH520 7.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver

Pros: HDMI Passthru and return channel
Nameable inputs

Cons: Can't program remote for TV other than Sony brand
No EQ adjustment
Not very user-friendly interface

Other Thoughts: I came from an older basic Onkyo receiver which didn't even take the audio out of HDMI inputs. That is the main reason that I bought this one. The hookups all work well enough, but I was disappointed when I contacted Sony to find out that the receiver remote cannot be programmed to any other brand of TV. Come on Sony, it's 2013! Overall it's a very basic receiver without any EQ adjustment or even crossover balance that I can find, and I have read the entire manual through 3-4 times (while trying to find out how to program the remote...). It does what I bought it for, but at the sacrifice of other features in order to hit the price point. Overall I wish I had waited to buy something a bit nicer, but I don't want to pay the return shipping which would likely be a lot for something this size.
