Pros

Automatically detects and displays sound mode options depending on content type - DVD playback is especially well-supported with multiple EQ presets

Ideal for users with primarily Sony components - "S-Link" technology provides one-touch connectivity between speakers, televisions, media players and receivers

1 agrees

Remote works great with compatible home theater products - displays all possible multimedia options directly on the control's display

1 agrees

Sound outputting is clear and balanced - little to no distortion across 5 channels thanks to gold-plated RCA jacks

1 agrees

Excellent power handling - volume output level will rarely need to be set beyond the "5" level

1 agrees

Two-Way is ENTIRELY programmable. Runs every brand of component I have. Just read the instructions.

1 agrees

Multi-channel indicator provides full 5.1 surround sound access - lets the user know when 5-channel outputting is supported and displays layout options on the remote peripheral
