Summary: Pros: Incredible sound performance, amazing video processing Cons: assigning imputs such as BD or SAT to hdmi allows for video imput but not audio. Summary: I have researched Sony's es line for the last three years. I've taken the opportunity to do side by side comparisons with Sony and equal Yamaha, Denon and Marantz. There were pros and cons with each manufacture. I like Sony's products and have had nothing but exceptional service from their customer support.
Summary: I have had this receiver for several weeks now and it has been light years ahead of what it replaced. Lots of inputs and assignable, flexible. For example you can actually assign video inputs to things like the MD in and gain another video source :) The gui is awesome aswell, everything is namable, assignable, and customizable. Now for the limitations that I have ran into. First off you cannot re-arrange the sources in the GUI just Rename.
