"Problem decoding DTS HD and Dolby True HD"1.5 starson by Splashman24
Pros: GUI is nice, 1080p throughput was clean
Cons: set-up program lacking compared to Audyessy, Sony support is poor
Summary: I returned this receiver after a few weeks and replaced with a Denon 3808CI. The Sony suffered from a defect that introduced a high level of hiss when decoding any thing other than legacy DTS and DD. Sony tried to convince me it was the speakers, yet there was no hiss when playing regular dvds. Only Dolby Digitl+ or above on high def discs. I had no problem with HDMI switching or black crush issues as reported elsewhere. Another problem I had were bass problems due to room anomolies. The Sony set-up program could do nothing to help this. Replacing with the Denon , and performing the set-up with Audyessy was almost life altering. It is the first feature in a receiver that I have used that actually can have a major difference in the sound. It managed to compensate for the room anomolies and unveiled the bass my SVS Ultra was putting out.
