Summary: This unit replaces a 10 year old Sony ES that was great for CDs, DVDs and HDTV with optical connections, but couldn't do BluRay sound and the optical stereo feed (uncompressed linear PCM audio) was garbled.
Summary: I have only had the receiver for a few days, but I really like it. I have been using Sony ES receivers for some time and have never been disappointed. The receiver is easy to set up and to use. I have great audio and video quality at a good price.
