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.
Summary: I bought this unit for 574 delivered. If you have the following items you will want this reciever a PS3 or blu ray player a TV that has an HDMI input, preferably 1080p I've read up on a lot of the connectivity issues on this unit prior to purchase.
Summary: I purchased this through Amazon and could not have been happier. The product was delivered promptly and in good condition. It was a breeze to set up and has worked flawlessly. It is a great product and I would recomend it and would buy it again if the need arose.
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...
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!
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.
