Summary: I BOUGHT THE 1200 ES AMP NEW Sony STR-DA2400ESB 7.1 Channel AV Receiver in Black FROM AMAZON A WHILE BACK NOW. EVERYTHING SEEMED FINE ON OPENING THE BOX I PLUGGED THIS ITEM INTO MY BRAVIA 50" HD Rear Projection TV and all seemed fine with the world. Unfortunately over time Sony STR-DA1200ES - STRDA 7.1 Multi Channel - Home Cinema Receiver With HDMI - Silver the amplifier has completely ruined the picture on my television for viewing Blu Ray,Laserdisc,DVD the pictures...
Summary: Just a quick response to the above really. Firstly the sound of any surrouns system does rely HEAVILY on the speakers used. If you are in the market for a surround sound amp then you are fairly serious about movies etc, so matching equipment is essential. I use B&W speakers as they are 'bright' . The Sony amp does seem to tame this, if you use bass heavy speakers then you will get bass heavy response.
Summary: I've had mine for over two years and it's awful - can't wait to dispose, don't buy, another nasty Sony product. It delays speech. Significantly. 'Makes actors look stupid. Fussy controls and very heavy. It 'knows better'. It will show one movie through at a specific volume, put another one in and it violently switches itself off, ruining the movie halfway through - you have to switch it on and scroll down to a lower volume than you just had, or it will happen again, and...
Summary: Had this for a little while now, it's amazing, and available in silver (I just love the retro look), unlike the bland blank that most electricals seem to be made in at present, well made solid and sounds awesome, about to use it with a Philips BDP7500SL Blu-Ray Player (also available in silver) worth every penny! Also has a fancy looking blue neon light strip for when digital sound is passed through.
Summary: There are four words to describe this beast, SOLID, POWERFUL, INVOLVING and UGLY. It has superb, powerful sound. Totally engulfs you. When hooked up as a 5.1 channel surround sound system, it shakes walls. Its not just noise coming out of the speakers, it is atmosphere. It manages to suck you in into whats happening on screen.
Summary: Ich bin mit dem Sony STR-DA1200ES insgesamt sehr zufrieden,super Sound, misst sich selbst gut ein,super universl FB. Was mir nicht so gefällt ist das er den Ton nicht aus dem HDMI Signal entnimmt. Würde ihn mir trotzdem wieder kaufen.
Summary: Отличный звук в кино, в музыке звук чистый, высокие отменные, но в целом как-то не цепляет, далеко не живой концерт, слушаю через комп на m-audio audiophile 192, и mission m34i, надо сравнить еще с усилителем 2-х канальным.
Pros: Отличный звук в кино, высокие супер, пультом можно управлять и теликом и двд плеером разных марок.
Cons: Стерео не очень цепляет, хотя от ресивера этого наверное не добьешься.
