Summary: I use this with a host of other equipment (Samsung plasma 50", D-Link Wireless Player, Toshiba DVD Player and Bose AM-15). I had to upgrade from my previous reciever (Pioneer VSX-D509S) only because I needed HDMI switching. I am a huge fan of this Pioneer power house.

Summary: I used to use the Denon 4802. That was a nightmare to connect. This Sony was a breeze and is far easier to operate. In addition, I just love the quality of the Blu-Ray disks I use with it on a Samsung player.

The only problem is you will need to carefully plan your hookups, because once a set of jacks is surrounded, you'll never get...
Summary: I'm simply elated over this receiver! How it looks, performs, the features and price. I'm coming from an old 1998 Sony STR DE-925 Receiver that's a 5.1 set up. While my old system was great, especially the sound quality, this new one is the MAC DADDY!!
