“First off I would like to point out that this receiver came with a home theater in a box kit that included a 6.1 speaker setup which explains the high purchase price for this mid range receiver.

“I feel that I should be embarrassed to post a review about a Sony receiver, especially one that I only paid a couple hundred bucks for after seeing all those fancy $1000+ receiver reviews! I had a 7.1 Sony receiver for many years that I only ever used in 5.1 and it was only a pass-through and I was not able to get audio through the HDMI inputs (it only had 2 of those).
