  • Summary: For starters I will have to say this is the first piece of Sony ES equipment I have bought for HOME audio. I came to appreciate the ES line of equipment from my endeavors as a car audio enthusiast. Now that I am home more often, (Not in my vehicle on the road 80% of the year anymore) I am working on building my home setup. Before this, all I had was a pretty basic Stereo set up. In fact this is replacing a Sony STR-D365.
  • Pros: If your looking for a one unit solution with very nice sound for Audio/HomeTheater, this would satisfy just about everything anyone would possibly need. If it isn't enough power then just use the pre outs and it can function as a very nice pre-amp. I especially like the 5.1 inputs so I can finally hear my SACD's the way they were supposed to be mixed to the correct channels.
  • Cons: Took a while to figure out all the capabilities and controls. This thing at first seemed like it did TOO MUCH. I still am not totally satisfied with the way it handles the crossover for the subwoofer, but for most normal setups it would work fine. Illuminated buttons would be nice on the remote.
