Bare bones but functional
The unit does what Sony intended it to do. Unlike previous versions of the es line they have decided to leave off a lot of useful and desired features. One I really miss is the nice blue light that used to tell you when you have a Dolby Digital signal or DTS signal lock. Not a necessary feature but a useful one. It also looks like Sony is now doing their own video processing instead of farouda which did a fantastic job! So to sum up it looks like Sony went the bare bones route to save money instead of providing an outstanding es receiver like they used too. It does what it's supposed to do but don't expect an above and beyond performance receiver like the previous series. It's also not compatible with the es receiver app for android and iPhone which should've been a no-brainer in this age of allowing your phone to control more and more of your devices. A very weak follow up to years of outstanding and feature loaded es receivers. The best that can be said is it does what it's supposed to do, minimally.
