For instance the highly touted "automatic" audio calibration. The STR- DN2010 algorithm mangles the high frequency response of my JBL Pro speakers making them screech and it does not seem to hear my Velodyne subwoofer well at all! It boosts the subwoofer level the maximum +10 dB no matter how loud I turn it up. After checking to see if there was a new firmware release, I gave up on the "auto" calibration and used my old Joe Kane HDTV calibration DVD.
Next the STR-DNB2010 interprets between track changes from the BDP-S570 as a total loss of input, causing the KDL-40HX800 into thinking that it lost communications with the STR-DN2010, switching the audio over to the TV speakers instead of the normal STR-DN2010. The Bravia sync handshaking with both the BDP-S570 and the KDL-40HX800 TV are rough at best.
Finally, the network interface is broken whenever the STR-DN2010 is placed in standby. It takes rerunning the manual network setup over again to restore the Internet connectivity.
All this points to the need for the Sony product engineers to clean up the firmware so this product does not seem like a Beta tester's nightmare.
This is definitely for the audiophile in the family. The settings are generous and offer many ways to customize the sound. However, that flexibility in customization comes with a bit of price of complexity. If you are willing to review the manual and walk through the set up, you will be rewarded with a sound set up that is very customized to you.
I am glad I made this purchase.
Fine with a pair of speakers from Sony model ss-f7000. It's price is reasonable compared to $800.00 MSRP from Sony. Now it is
A lot cheaper.works way better than my old Sony receiver.3d pass through work ok too.All I need to do is to turn my DVD on and the receiver;and
TV all turn on.Switch to DVD source automatically; cool.Make sure you connect devices with HDMI cables for the receiver,tv and DVD player talk to each other. Sony DVD player, Bravia tv ,and this receiver work fine. Also my 3d Samsung DVD player work great too. Now priced around $ 300 delivered is fantastic. Thanks for reading this review. Jaya 2.
