Summary: Sony is having quite a year. From TVs to AV receivers, its latest ranges have proved more than a match for the competition, with plenty of plaudits and Hot Buy rosettes picked up along the way. DVD/HDD recorders have proved a rich picking ground for the company, too, so we had high hopes for the RDR-HXD890 machine from the off. Simple setup As we always expect from Sony, the setup and interface on this player is simple to follow and fast to get moving.
