Summary: Solid receiver with plenty of power. Went to this from an aging Sony ES receiver and I was slightly worried about taking a hit in the quality department. But it's been 2 months and I'm very pleased. I like the clean nearly button-free exterior and the fact that it's setup with all the latest formats including 3D. I would like to see Sony enhance the on-screen menu though, it's clunky and very poorly designed.
Summary: I bought this receiver for the HDMI plug-ins and I'm very pleased with it. It looks great. The one drawback is it doesn't have a 'switched' plug-in in the back for my powered subwoofer. Consequently I have to turn on the subwoofer for the movies instead of it coming on when the receiver is turned on.
