Fantastic AV

Cherry SS, Amazon
7 September 2015
  • Summary: First part of review, 2nd day after install. It was lots of research along with REVIEWS that helped me decide on the Sony over Denon. It took me about two months to gather all the equipment for my system, so I was a little nervous unpacking this open box deal.

You'll be very happy with this receiver

  • Summary: I bought this unit because Definitive Technology suggests that you have one of the ES line to drive their speakers with. I'm very pleased with this unit in too many ways to write here.

Sony STR-DA1800ES 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Receiver

David, Amazon
12 February 2015
  • Summary: My last 7.2 Receiver was almost twice as much as this one, yet this one outperforms the more expensive one. This receiver is smaller and lighter- still more powerful and the surround sets up easier and sounds better. Go figure.

Great receiver. Works well

R. Bellamy, Amazon

  • Summary: Great receiver. Works well. Primitive GUI menus, but they do the work needed. The user manual is a different story. It is not all clear or intuitive, and seems to assume that the user already knows how to operate/set up the receiver. I called the Sony support number and got a guy with an attitude.

  • Summary: Installed with Definitive Technology Pro Cinema speakers system and was amazed by the quality of sound delivered. Three or four days later the HDMI output was not recognized by the TV.

ES is the way to go

David G., Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This STR-DA1800ES was bought to replace my STR-DA1000ES bought in 2001. The 1000 still sounds great, but the display has become too dim to see. The good: - The ES series is as close to audiophile quality you can get without breaking the bank. That's why I replaced my old one with a new one.

Great price for all the features, no such thing as true 7.2, bluetooth is a great bonus.

Damien Olvera, Amazon

  • Summary: I upgraded from an old ES receiver that only supported 5.1 with optical. This receiver is much easier to wire up since HDMI uses audio and video in the same cable. You can configure the speaker lay out via an on screen UI which is really basic and ugly or on the LED screen on the receiver.
