Whats it like

The sound is clear and crisp with ooomph (if that’s a word) even at maximum volume, with very little distortion.
When playing Bluray, the LED on the main stand will light up depending on Dolby Digital or DTS mode. You can also experiment with the Sound Effects switch on your device (Cinema, Game, Voice/Stereo, Off).
I experimented with the Cinema Surround Sound effect. It works pretty well when watching movies/playing games – but needs to turn it off when listening to music.
My only weak point is, unfortunately my AV Receiver (STR-DH820) doesn’t have an Optical Out port. I’m thinking of buying an RCA to 3.5mm cable to use the headphones over the AV Receiver.
