I bought this system and a sony DVPNS90V DVD-SACD player to go with my PS3 and Samsung series 7 46" LCD. I had a Comcast Cable HD box the PS3 and the sony DVD player all HDMI outing into the HTSS2300 receiver and then that outputting into my TV with HDMI. The stock sub sounded blown right out of the box. I had to use my old JBL 10" sub just like with my old sony system of comparable value. It worked like a dream for about 50 days. For no reason the receiver started only playing 2.1 on A.F.D auto even though the DVD player was playing 5.1. The receiver will still work properly with my PS3. I brought the DVD DVPNS90V back to Ultimate Electronics and they verified it would only output 2.1 there too. They gave me a new sony DVPNS90V player. As soon as I hooked it up to the HTSS2300 it did the same thing. Bottom line the HTSS2300 destroys some sony DVD players and makes them only put out 2.1 on any receiver. Exchanged and upgraded to Denon DENDVD1940CI DVD-A, SACD player works fine again. Denon is much better. The HTSS2300 has bugs. I had one problem with my PS3 and the HTSS2300 but it hasn't repeated yet. I'll never buy sony again!
