A 4+ star audio receiver with 2+ star video functions
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) IN SHORT: As an audio-video receiver, it's solid on the A, but falls short on the V. Still, it's a very good option if that fits your needs.The Panasonic SA-XR57 is a solid receiver for someone looking for to fill out the audio section of their home theater, especially if the compact size and lower heat output of this digitally amplified model are important to you....

Successor to the lengendary xr55!
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) ...what it has that the xr55 does not: HDMI, dual-amping of front mains now available during 5.1 playback, one extra set of component inputs, and all-channel stereo (called "party mode" on other receivers). Otherwise the internal components are identical, so expect similar performance---in other words, outstanding SQ when matched with the right speakers, blows away ...

Sound never sounded so good
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) Sound is just so crisp and clear it is amazing you can get this type of performance for around $300. I had an Onkyo sr502 and this xr57 blows it away. There are things I never noticed before in movies. The little sounds like fire crackling in the background, sounded like I had a fireplace in my livingroom. The major improvement is dialogue. Right away I noticed the differen...

Nice but no HDMI up conversion
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) This seems good receiver with nice sound output. I bought and retuned because it does not up convert other video sources to HDMI. Required to use same type of output for same input. If you are using, component inputs, you need to use component output as well to connect toTV or projector and same is true for S-Video and composite video. S-Video or HDMI output does not...

Sleek, but can't run component in and HDMI out.
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) I needed HDMI to run a long cord to a plasma. If you run HDMI out, you need to use HDMI in. This is fine, but there is only one HDMI in. How do you hook your cable and DVD into one input?... Well I'll probably get a $200 HDMI switch. But for now I'm running my cable through my HDMI DVD player. When I get my Hi-def signal hooked up, I don't know if I want to route that throu...

Rim Shot
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) My experience with this product was frustration and sadness. I would have expected this product to be a perfect companion for the 50" Panasonic plasma TV that I installed. HDMI connections should make everything clean and simply. Sadly, I did not find this to be the case. The product info listed 2 HDMI connections, but this refers to 1 in and 1 out. No HD...

very good receiver for the money
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) I would have rated this receiver as excellent but for one glaring short coming, only one HDMI port. This receiver does a wonderful job with my home entertainment equipment. It is very easy to set up and a person like me with basic knowledge of assembling a home entertainment system had no problem with this receiver. Only if Panasonic would had the vision to add at least to HD...

Great equipment
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) Good buy and received timely from shipper. The one downside is that the description on Amazon did not state that the equipment does not support mutiple inputs to one output. However, it did have all the possible inputs and outputs needed and was easy to setup. Lots of additional features!

great price for the quality
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) We bought this receiver after reviewing numerous others. Firstly the price was great and the best part is the differnt digital sound options on a 7.1 surround. I hooked up a 5.1 infinity surround speakers and the outcome is just superb. configuring the device was easy but only one HDMI in and out ports. It is not an issue really if you have HDMI ports on your TV and DVD already ...

Basic 7.1 receiver
 
This review is from: Panasonic SA-XR57S Digital Home Theater Receiver with HDMI, Silver (Electronics) For a basic 7.1 receiver, it works very well. Sound quality via my Paradigm 5.1 setup is excellent and the inputs are almost as configurable as I'd like. Lack of HDMI switching (only 1 HDMI in/1 HDMI out) is a bit of a limitation, but for the price it's expected (as is the lack of upconversion, but for upconversion you'd have to spend $500-700 at a minimum) and hence for the pri...
