Pros My HD satelite receiver, Toshiba 55" flat screen, a Sony S470 DVD player, all hooked up with the HDMI cable. Never had to program the remotes everything intgrated automatically even my Satelite remote. The Toshiba TV integrated like a Bravia.
Cons None nice receiver for the price.
Summary I really like the Sony STR DN1010 and have no negative remarks. I am not a major tech person but I found it easy to install and played with the remote and manual for a few hours and found the sounds fantastic.
Many sound features to choose from for viewing movies and then switch the sound for outstanding music.
Hooked up all speakers with ease: 4 SS-B1000, 2 SS-F6000, 1 SS-CN5000, and 1 SA-W2500. Filled my 36X24 room with booming clear sound.
For about 300.00 I can't complain and don't understand why there are negative reviews. It is exactly what was advertised.
Pros Easy setup, auto-calibration works pretty well.
Cons GUI only available in HDMI, leaves older/non-HD hanging, manual not very clear.
Summary Replaced my old Sony 5.1 system with this, and kind of wish my old system still worked. Setup was relatively easy, but the manual was confusing, and caused a couple of false starts on getting all of the speakers setup correctly since I am only running 5.1, not 7.1 yet. Also, the GUI was a big thing for me, but all of the reviews I have read, none said anything about it only working over the HDMI connection. I am still using an SD TV, and this was a little disappointing. I am getting HD, just have to wait til Tax time. Also, no S-video hookup, and connections can be kind of confusing.
Pros Looks pretty, lots of connectors
Cons No Internet capability for software updates, unlike my Sony Bravia TV and Blu-ray.
Summary Does interact with other Bravia via HDMI, as advertised, but extremely slowly. User interface and manual are so confusing it took me several hours to get it integrated with above Sony Bravia products, all connected via HDMI and optical. Manual assumes owner is intimately familiar with all the "new" features and protocols and therefore knows exactly what is wanted, rather than offering a simple explanation of when feature occurs and is needed, e.g., digital media port.
Pros I dont know why anyone would spend that much money on something that barely works.
Cons wearing glasses to watch tv
Summary stupid idea, its not even good at the theatre. where is the functioning parts that constitute a pair of 300 dollar 3d glasses???????
