Worthless for audiophiles looking to hide receiver in a cabinet.

Summary: While the Sony STR-DN2010 has great features (including a 4-port ethernet switch) it lacks one major item that makes it impossible for many enthusiasts...the lack of IR ports and the inability to use an IR emitter disallow the use of the AV receiver in a cabinet. I painfully found this out after ordering the receiver through Amazon.com. No where in the specs or documentation did it mention this limitation, I only found out during installation.
Summary: I bought the STR-DN2010 to work with a new Sony 3D KDL-40HX800 Bravia LCD and a Sony 3D BDP-S570 Bravia Blu Player. It does a lot of new things like decoding SACD multichannel audio from the BDP-S570. But some things it does not do well at all. For instance the highly touted "automatic" audio calibration. The STR- DN2010 algorithm mangles the high frequency response of my JBL Pro speakers making them screech and it does not seem to hear my Velodyne subwoofer well at all!
