"Awesome AV receiver"4.0 starson by hugodb
Pros: 6 HDMI inputs - DD+, TrueHD and DTS HD etc, renamable HDMI inputs
Cons: No OSD over HDMI, no switched power outlet on back
Summary: This is a great ES receiver. It has many HDMI and component inputs. It also features Neural THX (a first for any Sony I owned) - It is not as high than other receivers with this kind of power & features so it allows for some better heat dissipation in my cabinet. Quick HDMI switching and the Faroudja Cinema chip looks pretty good, although I am not in much need to upconvert anymore since most of my sources already have upconversion built-in.Forgot to add that this receiver has a dedicated toslink audio output. Perfect for DD cordless headphones for example.
