Updating sony bravia firmware
On the upper half, Sony uses a somewhat smaller OSD, which is covered by what I assume is a transparent plastic surface that extends the entire width of the front panel.
The lower part is relatively clean and contains two control wheels to the right - to adjust the volume and source selection, while on the left you´ll find the standby button, a 6.35mm gold-plated headphone output, a microphone input for calibration and USB-A port.
Like most well-known manufacturers, Sony is trying to give their AV receivers a distinctive look that will make them stand out from the crowd.
Network connection can be made via the Ethernet port (RJ45) or wirelessly using the provided two Wi-Fi antennas.
Loudspeakers are connected via standard terminals that accept bare wire, forks or banana plugs, and there are two outputs for active subwoofers.
The top and sides are made from a single piece of sheet metal, with a large number of slots for cooling, while the rear panel follows the general trend of reducing the number of analog inputs in favor of digital and network connectivity.
Analog inputs are reduced to four pairs of RCA inputs, with two composite video inputs and one output.
