An increasing number of receivers come with Ethernet jacks to pull music out of a network-connected PC. It can also simultaneously accept optional adapters that offer Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capability. Together, these triple-threat wireless options rethink the nature of audio networking.
Why is this better than a computer-centric approach? A shiny dark plastic panel takes up most of the front. It includes a small white fluorescent display and a volume knob on the right. Next to the volume knob is a slender horizontal rocker switch for input selection. A flip-down panel at the bottom provides access to a few buttons that select soundfield modes.
Fortunately, the remote is a good one. It has a ribbed pattern on the rounded bottom that provides traction as well as a modest tactile stimulus. Special emphasis goes to the 17 input-select buttons. The transport keys include an oversized Play button and a small Pause button located right beneath it. The volume and channel rockers are reasonably large. Backlighting appears only on the four mode-shift buttons on the top, including the ones that shift between amp and TV functions.
Some users might prefer backlighting for all of the keys. Otherwise, this is a pretty well-thought-out remote, and I used it with pleasure. On the back panel are four HDMI inputs and one output. The absence of S-video is increasingly common in AVRs that are in this price range.
Sony provides composite video connection for legacy sources. Sirius satellite radio is supported. The only thing that unnerved me was the absence of a multichannel analog input. My old universal disc player and a stack of new SACDs gathered dust during this review. I had to limit my audio demos to CDs, vinyl, and iPod. I set it up manually, ignored the proprietary auto-setup program, and put it through its paces with my reference speakers, saving the wireless-speaker experience for later.
Manual setup was slightly complicated by the fact that the test tones and channel adjustments are on different menus. Sony clearly expects the consumer to take advantage of the auto setup mode.
All movie selections were on Blu-ray Disc and had various lossless soundtracks. It had modest bass, a midrange that did well with vocals, and highs that were well developed but slightly grainy.
