Fantastic features and a really good sound

A bit fiddly to set up, the instructions are not clear. It worked better once I routed all the various HDMI sources to the TV and then the audio output from the TV to the Sony via an optic cable. It was easy to connect an Ethernet bridge to pick up my...

Makes sound quality match HD picture of Bravia TV. Standard TV sound was lacking especially noticeable after 'old tv' with nicam stereo sound built in
