Going strong since 2007, BUT the documentation!!!!!

  • Summary: I got one of these amps in '07 to match up HDMI with a new TV. After endless hair pulling due to the design and amp documentation, which is about as logically organized as a Congressional subcommittee report, we did actually get HDMI inputs from a SONY DVD player and Apple TV to work.

  • Summary: I only thing that I like about it, that it works. There are some feature of this product that are not easy to get to. (Not as simple as pushing 1 button on the remote or on the Receiver.) That is only thing that I don't like about it. I bought it because of the price and I need a 6.1 receiver.

All good but one very bad thing. No 5.1 PCM!!!

  • Summary: While Sony touts this as a 5.1 or 6.1 system with 24/96 LPCM, this not true, it auto converts all PCM signals to 2.1 stereo! Why? I have no idea, but my HD DVD player only outputs HDMI in PCM sound! I got this for the HDMI audio inputs!
