Very good value. I replaced a STR-DG800 7.1 HDMI passthrough receiver with this unit. It's a good buy for PS3 owner's. While it doesn't decode Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio ,it doesn't matter since the PS3 decodes both and sends the LPCM to the receiver. The DTS-HD MA decoding capability was added with PS3 firmware update 2.30 on 15 April. Since I was already familiar with the Sony Receiver setup procedure initial setup was a breeze.
1. Use Speaker auto-cal.
2. On the PS3 select HDMI LPCM in the Audio menu
and in sound settings in HDMI select Automatic and the receiver will automatically select the optimum sound. You can verify this by hitting the select button on the PS3 controller while watching the movie.
I just watched 'I Am Legend' with Dolby TrueHD and 'Xmen, The Last Stand' with DTS-HD MA. SPECTACULAR!!!
Also, check out the Uncharted Drake's Fortune video game if you have it. Set the audio in Game Options to LPCM 7.1 WHOO HOO!!!
