Sony has a winner in this receiver

June 04, 2019
I just bought this from Best Buy, hooked it up to my old Polk Audio Monitor 70's and my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones and I am amazed. Sony engineers really hit the jackpot with this little receiver. It sounds amazing. I positioned my big speakers in my direction, put rubber isolation pads underneath, made sure the wires are not touching anything and played music from Pandora. I really believe that this receiver is designed for Pandora listening using iPhone. I listed to Dave Brubeck, Joe Sample, Sarah Brightman, etc. and the sound quality compares with any high end receiver out there, including Denon and Onkyo. Good job Sony. You have me sold on this receiver. My only complaints is the speaker wire connectors, which should be able to take banana plugs. Other than this, there is no hookup to TV via optical or HDMI. But Bluetooth connection is instantaneous
