Sharp SD-HX500 Digital AV Receiver and Universal Player

 

When Sharp Electronics unveiled its audacious line of 1-Bit digital AV receivers based on delta-sigma modulation amplifiers, each with a built-in, progressive-scan, universal DVD player, Sony again came to mind—and for good reason. These innovative...

Sharp SD-HX500 Digital AV Receiver and Universal Player

 

When Apple introduced the iPod, many industry observers scratched their heads, wondering why Sony hadn't been the first to deliver such a product. After all, Sony had invented the Walkman--the first speakerless, portable personal audio cassette player,...

Direct digital link from player to amplifier for SACD and DVD-Audio

Better sound and flexibility available elsewhere for the same price, but not in such a small, one-piece package

You can get equal or better sonic and visual performance from separate components for about the same price as Sharp's SD-HX500. Denon's new AVR-2805 7.1-channel receiver costs around $800; to it you could add Onkyo's new DV-SP502 universal player...

gorgeous home theatre

 

goes nicely with flat TV's, good picture and sound quality. Plays just about any disc. Sound quality dependent on what speaker system you choose

A bit pricey for basically a HTIB with no speakers. remember though, that it does play SACD and DVD-R

Consumer review by:

It's not bad..

The Combo deal from Newegg was great. Provides good 5.1 surround sound for my setup

Setup was a little awkward. Red is negative on the front speakers and positive on the center and back speakers. No HDMI ports, which kinda sucks as it was bundled with HDTV's. Doesn't always work well with my universal remote
