Once I had everything set up, I ran through the Audio/Video set-up manually. The DH810 comes with a mic that allows you to automatically configure your sound system (the receiver does all the work, but I prefer to do the "tweaking" manually. But that's just me. However, that said, after manually setting up my system, I reset the receiver and allowed the included mic to automatically detect and set up my sound system (just to see how it handled the task) and it did a bangin' job! Very easy automated and intuitive set-up.
The initial set-up is a breeze. Hold down the On/Off button on the receiver for 5 seconds until the receiver says CLEAR (which you can do anytime you want to undo any major blunders or just start fresh). Press the speaker button on the receiver until your speaker set-up appears, select your desired input button on the remote, crank up the volume and you have sound! From there, the remote's menu allows you to configure all the tweaks like EQ, Speaker distance, balance, bass, treble, you TVs resolution, etc. I would prefer some kind of TV-On-Screen Menu, but that is not really a big deal to me.Read more ›
Programming the remote to work with all of my components was very simple. Everything is working smoothly together, especially by utilizing Bravia Sync with a PS3.
5.1 and 7.1 DTS-MA and Dolby TrueHD have been handled perfectly and the 7.1 set-up has given my living room a sound field that I wouldn't have believed. I prefer to calibrate my speakers by my own ear, but using the Auto Cal option to see how well it works was a very pleasant surprise, and trying to fool the mic by placing it in tough spots was harder to do than one would imagine.Read more ›
It is obvious that the folks at Sony have put most of their focus on people who have the newest equipment at the expense of the large customer base that have a significant investment in Sony products over the last several years that are still going strong. This is evident in the constant touting of HDMI connections and 3D readiness. What you don't hear is what connectivity was dropped. I always strongly recommend to my friends that the[= download the user manual from a manufacturer's support site before making a final decision. For Sony, that is esupport.[...]. This is literally a case of "a picture is worth a thousand words."
For me, what was lost was needed audio connections; there is only one set of dedicated audio in/outs (labeled SA-CD/CD/CD-R). You can always use the audio connections of a video input, but it still feels a tad wasteful to leave the video connections forever unused. It is also inconvenient for the need to give a briefing to your family telling them that the audio connection you labeled "HD Tuner" is operated by first pressing the "Video 1" button on the remote.Read more ›
