"Great Sound and impressive inputs. HDMI 1080p"4.5 starson by 360xbox
Pros: Supports Linear PCM (uncompressed) on my PS3
Cons: No 1080p passthrough over component for my 360
Summary: Great receiver. It does 1080p passthrough over HDMI. I was impressed it could do Linear PCM just like the higher end 5200es.
The sound and power of this receiver is impressive. It's a big step up from the Sony str-dg800 and not as expensive as the similar featured Sony 3200es.
Picture quality over HDMI is fantastic.
If you have followed the Xbox360 and PS3 you will have noticed that 1080p is possible over component. This for games only that support this, or that are upconverted. Of course, 1080p is not possible for HD movies because of copy protection, that is for HDMI.
I have 1080p over component directly to my TV for games. In my post I said that I could not convert the 1080p over component to HDMI using my receiver.
Hope that helps.
