    Bought the amplifier from the electricity giant on a campaign for SEK 3990
    First impression was good, the interface looked good and it was easy to configure.

    When I would change some settings in the evening, I notice that there is a high frequency sound in the room I go to the speakers and hear that the sound comes from all the speakers. If I turn off the amplifier then the sound disappeared and I turn it on, the sound came back. I checked all the cables, I reset the amplifier but the sound was there all the time. So I unpacked it and returned it and bought an Onkyo 696.

    It gets a star for the interface being nice.

    (Update: Removed two stars due to problems with the HOME page, see below)

    As Willtonic writes, casting to built-in chromecast or spotify connect doesn't work when the amplifier is in standby, which is, to say the least, annoying. The reason is that power consumption in stand-by mode would be greater than what is allowed in the EU. Not quite Sony's fault then. You can wake up the amplifier with remote control or bluetooth first. Of course, it is also possible to wake the amplifier automatically through HDMI via connected devices (eg TV, Chromecast Ultra, or gaming console).

    + Powerful, good sound
    + Support for Dolby Atmos, works well with my LG TV
    + Chromecast Audio, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth
    + Good with connections (incl. Network socket)
    + Stylish (both look and interface)

    - (Update) Very annoying (!) That the HOME page opens a few seconds after switching source on TV (connected via ARC). This page should never be displayed unless you press HOME. Now you have to use the remote control every time, completely unnecessary. In addition, it takes a long time to display this menu. Searching Google shows that many people have this problem, but Sony ignores us.
    - Cannot cast to it when it is in standby
    - Paper manual in too many languages, but not English. The Swedish manual contains errors, rather use https://helpguide.sony.net/ha/strdn108/v1/en/index.html

    Some have written about a beeping sound. Sony must have fixed it for my piper nothing in standby mode or at all.

    Would discourage people from buying any of the current amplifiers that Sony has to offer. Initially, they have smaller features than previous models (Where did Advanded Auto Volume go?), But then they also use cheap components that sound unbearably in standby, which you can read in several reviews below. This is not just the case for their amplifiers, but many of Sony's TVs are sounding the same way.

    This one has nice sound but is miserable to switch between inputs. Gets black screen all the time and needs to enter and exit the menu to connect with devices

    Don't understand why everyone is so happy with this. Thinking most is very disturbing in how it behaves .. The home menu comes up several times if you change source to lots of other shit .. Well with the firmware update to eArc compatible to do but sony doesn't seem to care about fixing.
    Reason for buying this was hdr to 4k .. Not worth it so far from it.

    Have had this surround receiver for a week now, after previously running on Onkyo and Yamaha.

    I like the interface, it's nice with a little more visual and I recognize some parts of the design from Sony's consoles, bluray players, etc. The only thing that I think is a bit of a shame is that, as with their older bluray players, it becomes obvious that it does not have so much processor (?) To handle the interface, there will be some thinking time that is really in-country problem to complain about .. But it is still a little disturbing.

    When I'm still on the track with time ... Compared to my Onkyo, communication between the digital receiver and receiver takes longer. It does not matter if I sit with a ps4 because it does not change so much, but the digital box changes audio format, resolution etc hi wild. So all of a sudden it takes time to zap. Sad - but that said really no giant problem really.

    The sound picture in Sony I have always experienced as a bit special. From a fairly old stereo to this receiver, I feel that Sony wants a clear treble and a lot of bass. In addition, they want to move the sound image backwards, so that it surrounds the listener neutrally instead of coming from the front. Since my fronts are of a much better quality than my surround speakers (which, although not bad, but it differentiates a zero in price range ...) it ends with that I do not use Sony's preset variants straight off, but tweak something to get what I like from my facility. A little more pill than with previous receivers I had before I was satisfied.

    Otherwise, I like most things. Little disappointment though, when I realized that chromecast to the receiver only supports audio and not picture. This means that after all, I have to keep my chromecast plugged behind, which I had hoped for a short while. Have also realized how rarely I just listen to music in that particular room: /

    But now I have listed some specific details that I am more or less satisfied with. To sum up the whole, I generally like it. I think it is easy to set up, and it does a good job with sound and picture. Looking forward to continued testing, and should my experience change, I will of course update the review here :) But so far this is in my opinion the best in the price range.

    Wake-up networks are not supported on the European version, but you have to wake it up with remote or possibly bluetooth.

    Sent back mine. Wrong interface, get audio programs, no phono input. Unable to "wake up" the amplifier via the mobile phone, but you must use the remote. The sound there is nothing wrong with but Sony was not for me. It will be to get a Yamaha again.

    Do their job really well and at an excellent price. Easy-configured and really good with included microphone for calibration of speaker spacing.

    The big minus is, as mentioned, the speed of the user interface. Fortunately, you only need to use it when you configure the device. However, the interface is really nice but as said terribly silly.

    The remote control is plastic but again, I do not use it daily as I control the volume through other controls and it selects the correct source automatically.

    Tested for a couple of months now and considering the price it is full pot. Really good sound! DTS HD-MA sounds amazing and Dolby Atmos and DTS: X sound even better! Replace from Pioneer Vsx-921 and do not experience menus etc as especially slow compared to it. My heavy-duty B & W 683 sounds really good with this amplifier!

    The Music Center app works beyond expectations.

    Kait's review is "spot on" - does the job well, but stops at some points. Purchased this for hdcp support as well as Atmos 5.1.2.

    Sounds better than the Yamaha RX-V781, hdcp supports all inputs as well as an HDMI input more which made me return Yamahan.

    Had I had a bigger budget I had chosen the Yamaha RX-A870 when I previously owned the A810, which I was extremely pleased with.

    In short, it sounds good, nothing to complain about. Users who sign up for this price range will not be disappointed. Plenty of connections and finally, a receiver with an interface that appears to be from this page of the millennium change. Very easy to install and configure. Other Manufacturers: What do you do?

    Then we come to the big minus, it's really fun in the menus. Pressing the remote control may take a few seconds before anything happens. Here Sony has a tremendously under-dimensioned hardware. Another minus is the remote control, a plastic history and far behind the competitors when it comes to quality.
