Pros: inputs, inputs, inputs
Cons: two way remote a bit slow.
I was replacing an older Pro-Logic receiver with one capable of digital. I also wanted a unit to accept my vcr's ps2, dvd's tapedeck, mini-disk, and turntable. This was without a doubt the best choice out there (within a reasonable price of course). Spend the time to get it set up completely (this seems to ba a common theme among Sony's products) and you will be amazed at the sound available.
The only downside I can come up with (other than the delay in the 2-way remote, which carries a pretty big cool factor BTW) is the lack of component (video) input and output. If one includes the price, then this cannot be a factor anyway.
All in all - a solid, good sounding and fairly easy to use unit.
