shattering sound!

Jokertime, Amazon
16 July 2011
  • Summary: This receiver exceeded my expectations! if you could hook a receiver to your system this would be the one. I am very impressed with the power and the look of the whole thing. It has more than enough power to send my klipsch speakers sailing through the living room. I too am very excited about the small remote sent with it. I use the small remote for everything.

Sony ES Still Tops

simba*knemo, Ebay
25 February 2009
  • Summary: I have always loved Sony products because of their reliablity and functionality. These products tend to be the best per cost value. One can not go wrong when it comes to making the purchase of any Sony product. This machine is absolutly beautiful. Ready to march right out of the box. Keep Sony receivers in mind when starting to build your Home Entertainment .

I think there is a lot of confusion regarding the new hd sound formats. I hope I can provide some help to individuals reading this post. To get True HD, or DTS master audio from the PS3 you need to do the following.

Best 7.1 receiver available

bmw845is, Ebay
11 April 2008
  • Summary: I spent the better part of February and April reviewing reports about the different 7.1 receivers available. Looked at Onkyo,Yamaha,Marantz,Integra and Pioneer Elite. I came to the conclusion that this was the receiver for me. Owning a Sony STRDA2ES for the past four years and loving it,made my decision easy. The only reason I'm replacong it is I want a receiver with HDMI to go with the BDPS1 disc player and KDL52XBR4 that I purchased recently.

Excellent Receiver

Christopher Steele, Amazon
26 February 2008
  • Summary: This receiver is a HUGE upgrade from my older Sony ES receiver (pre-hdmi), and is worlds better. I loved my old receiver, but it was heavier, ran hotter, had no GUI to speak of, and didn't do video signal upconversion, which meant that changing from my older s-video DVD player to my satelite provider required an input change on the TV as well. NO LONGER! Now I can just use the graphical UI on screen to select the input I want, and it just works.

Competence will make the Audio pass through

C. Hennen, Amazon
16 January 2008
  • Summary: This is an awesome receiver with an exceptional GUI! The reviewer must be mistaken, the receiver will pass all digital audio thru the HDMI out (except Analog, and who uses analog sources on a digital AVR) and a HDMI-DVI cable doesn't carry the audio because DVI is video only! Don't give a product 1 Star if your equipment is outdated and don't understand how it's supposed to be connected. I couldn't be happier with mine. Ditto!

Excellent Home Theater Receiver

williamg9525, Ebay
4 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a Sony receiver that I had for 4 yrs. It cost a good bit more than the old one but is well worth every penny. The three HDMI inputs and 1 output was exactly what I needed to hook up a DVD/VCR recorder, 400 disc cd player, and a BluRay player.It also has a DMPORT that I have my IPOD hooked up to. Excellent 1080P upscaling on regular DVD'S. I have found nothing negative and can only say,"EXCELLENT RECEIVER.

Looks great on paper, but beware...

Bob Loblaw, Amazon
1 January 2008
  • Summary: I purchased a Sony 3300 es to compliment my Sony PS3 and Sony 60" Grand Wega television. Sounds great, right? Wrong. The receiver was unable to pass audio (kind of important) through the PS3 hdmi cable. After literally hours of setting changes, cable swaps, and calls to customer service, no solution was found. So I swapped it for another one, and had the same problem. So I swapped it (again) for a Denon. Denon worked right out the box where the Sony would not.
