Sony's Receivers: Up close and Personal

Sony also had its 810 Video Walkman and iPod docks on display, showing how they both work with the new receivers:

The grand daddy, the STR-DA5300ES adds support for two zone HD video support over component as you can see from the picture below:
On the back of the unit you can clearly see all six of its HDMI inputs:
