    As the title suggest this is a top notch AV amp that is worthy of serious consideration. For starters in decodes all the new Hi Def codecs from a Blu Ray disc.
    Alot is made of the visual improvements with BR (i.e x6 more detail)- but the sound is a massive step up also, and you need an amp like this to do it justice. It has 4 HMDI inputs, plenty in fact for you HD kit (Sky HD / BR player / DVD etc etc).
    Once connected up - attach the supplied microphone to where you view your movies and the amp will measure the distances between all speakers, making room calibration an absolute synch.
    There's more - 100w output per channel gives plenty of power for the most demanding of movie soundtracks - also audio is handled very well; this is one of the most musical receivers around.

    As you can guess I love this amp - get in quick before they all disappear

    I like it, though my previous Yamaha (no hdmi) was decent at £200 (original price 300). I have been happy with this system for a few years. Though this Sony one is more simple, it works out all the settings exactly, you just place the mic where you sit. As the system is in my bedroom, I had to balance it on my pillow where I place my head. Also unlike my old Yamaha the wires fitted very easily at the back of the amp. It worked first time with the PS3, but u have to set the PS3 to PCM, and unclick dolby digital 5.1, then the amp will display the frequency of the PCM. It also has a picture of the speakers used on the screen.

    The sound does seem to have that heavy, but harmonic bass you find on the really expensive systems.

    I would not bother with the 7.1 as most films are 5.1. Even audio is best listened to at 2.0 (no DSP). I like having only 3 choices for film DSP, but well designed DSP. The system makes the subwoofer sing, the sound fields are wide, and expansive, which blend and interwine in an ambient sea.

    You can also change the name of the inputs, I changed BR to PS3, and phono to record....

    Having owned various av receivers over the past years, i have found this Sony receiver to be top notch, i have previously owned Marantz, Nad,Arcam, Denon, and Pioneer receivers, I was unsure of Sony in this field but i was pleasantly surprised, all the functionality you need for modern connection to all your av items, sounds fantastic, and a very easy setup and on screen display, I feel this AV Receiver will do me for the next few years and i well reccomend to both beginner and experienced alike.

    I didn't want to buy this receiver, since I was very happy with my Sony STR-DA555ES. The growth in HDMI sources forced me to reconsider, and I bought one for its HDMI switching ability, with a little trepidation as to whether the sound quality would disappoint.
    I needn't have worried. This receiver is both powerful and musical, (and even a little smaller and lighter than the previous one). I use it in a "4.1" configuration, i.e. front and rear left/right, plus a subwoofer. Much of my usage is for music (SACD). The quality is excellent in all regards.

    SKY HD uses an HDMI input, unfortunately not for sound due to some odd thinking on SKY's part, so the audio is input via optical. The receiver ties these together as a single source, (named SAT). Another reviewer has mentioned a video/audio sync problem, and I sometimes see it on this source only. It changes with SKY channel, however, so I'm more inclined to blame the source.

    For DVD recording I use a Sony RDR-HXD910 HDD/DVD recorder which does its own upscaling, connecting via HDMI.

    The third HDMI input is occupied by a Popcorn Hour A-100 media player, used mainly for high definition (1080p) video, both from a Sony HD camcorder and slideshows created on a PC.

    The fourth HDMI input is for a blu-ray player. Having been very pleased with this item, I eagerly looked for a SONY blu-ray player that would also play SACD, DVD, DVD-Audio and CD. There isn't one.
    Instead I have obtained an Oppo BDP-83 which does all of the above and more, and very well. It uses all of the generous capabilities of the receiver to fine effect.

    I really would love to have given this 5 stars but my experience with this receiver has been a disastrous hassle and waste of my time that I'm afraid I can only manage one.

    Ordered from Amazon it arrived quickly. It's quite tricky to set up but, to cut a long story short, nothing I did would produce enough volume through the centre speaker so it was almost impossible to hear the dialogue (on any input). A 'problem with the rest of your system then', you'd say, and that's what I thought too. But I tried two other front speakers and 4 separate cables as well as swapping the centre with a front etc but each time the centre channel volume was really low.

    Manually adjusting speaker volumes meant having the centre on max (+10db) and all the rest on min (-10db) but even with this the dialogue was overpowered and gave me no where else to go with any other adjustments (e.g. the rears still too loud).

    So after hours of tweaking, swapping speakers and getting loads of advice from web forums and a call to Sony, I concluded this was a duff unit. Amazon's returns policy is superb - I used the web based returns function on a Saturday evening and a replacement unit arrived the following Tuesday.

    However, on plugging this in it was exactly the same. Amazon were great, collecting both and giving me a refund.

    I've now spent a little more on the Yamaha RXV1065 instead. Far easier to set up, much better featured and out of the box the centre channel is full, rich and clear.

    I wrote I would have liked to have given this 5 stars as, apart from the centre channel issue, it sounded spectacular! A really engaging listen compared to my 10 year old Yamaha it replaced.
