Good sound, complex setup, poor design of inputs, DVD video does not pass through

Summary: 1) Interms of sound quality, I am no audiophile. But I think the sound is good enough for my ears. I like the integrated design, so my entertainment center is not so cluttered. 2) But the setup steps are very complicated. Maybe all of these systems are the same. But I bet a lot of people out there may be completely lost and intimidated by the thick book of instruction and tedious set up process. 3) The input/output panel (where you plug all the wires) is poorly situated.
Excellent, one serious flaw that ruins it for HD DVD watchers

Summary: Ok well 1st of all this product works great, as long as you plan to play dvds, it is an excellent system. I STRONGLY recommend that you use the manual setup feature, it is infinitely better than auto (though auto is pretty good too) HUGE CON the ysp 4000 cannot decode Dolby True HD audio THAT MEANS DON'T GET IT IF YOU WANT TO WATCH HD DVDs THROUGH HDMI because you can only watch/listen to your awesome media in stereo, while you watch your lower quality DVDs in 5.1...
