Summary: I bought this receiver new.....in 2006....was my main room receiver for many years, used daily, for the last 5 years it has been in our master bed room controlling a Definitive technology mythos ssa-50 with an older 12" klipsch sub also used daily.
Summary: Great receiver, excellent sound, good price. We bought it to replace a very expensive Marantz that caused a loud buzzing sound whenever it was turned on. It only lasted 4 years, two of which we put up with the buzz. Looking forward to seeing how long the Sony gives us great sound.
Summary: I've owned this receiver for about 6 years now and I refuse to give it up. Reason being, this is the best receiver I've ever owned. I have had to replace it in my living room due the lack of hdmi out puts or in puts. I have a str-da4400es in my living room now and it does not even compare.
Summary: I deceided to upgrade to a 7.1 system and i think i found the perfect one for me , it has plenty of power at 150 x 7 and all the inputs i need for now and the future . Overall i am very happy with my purchase .
Summary: Im not sure what the previous reviewers problems were? But My sony STR-DA3000 ES has been working perfectly for 3 years now. I have driving my 7.1 setup of Mirage Omnistats and Polk Sub in the Game room and controling the XM/CD music piped outside under our two decks!
Summary: Great receiver lot of power for your dollor. Five optical outs 2 Hd outs easy to configure. Rear speakers were much louder then my previous amp. My system is 7.1 with two and this amp drives it very well and clean.
HORRIBLE, This receiver didn't work or even PLAY static OUT OF THE BOX NEW!!!

Summary: ZERO TO NEGATIVE STARS. I don't know if I can blame it on the retailer because there might have been a recall on these or what. It took me 2 months and 9 or 10 hours of wasted time with SONY service. After the technicians couldn't fix at Sony HQ in San Diego I received a full refund.
