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.
Summary: This is a very good Receiver When it comes right down to it, audio quality is the most important feature of a surround sound receiver. The STR-DA5500ES does not disappoint. Quality is far above what I would expect from a receiver at this price point.
