Sony quality

 

Unit is built to look like a pre-amp and main amp. It's looks are pleasing with both remote control and amp., being of an uncluttered design. The sound is first-class, with both stereo and surround, very impressive. I would have preferred two HDMI...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Be careful

 

This amp is great, until you start to add multi-room options to it. I just bought a Sony wireless speaker, which has great full bodied sound. The trouble is, that as soon as you try to link the two together, the sub-woofer connected to the amplifier...
