Sony Engineering blunder renders good receiver useless (for me anyway).

  • Summary: I purchased this unit to replace my older Sony STR-DA5000ES receiver that did not have HDMI switching capabilities but otherwise was a great AV Receiver. I own an older Sony KDF-60XBR950 LCD DLP TV that was produced just prior to the HDMI standard and has a HDTV HDCP compliant DVI-I input for...

ES Series

  • Summary: I own a Sony Television and Blu-ray player. Bravia sync works really well when combined with the ES Receiver. I would recommend this product to anyone esp. those who already own Sony products. The GUI(Graphical User Interface) is easy to use. Good power and sound. I recommend calibrating speakers.

  • Summary: Now, this receiver has so many functionalities packed in. It's a beast with certain degree of beauty. It produces clear and beautiful sound, and does the best movie pull-down I've ever seen. I connect my PS3, xbox360 on this beauty. And fully enjoy the movies and games on my Sony 46" TV.

HOT BUY

  • Summary: I was always interested in ES from Sony. With DA4300ES being a good match for my existing speakers, having HDMI inputs, and video upscaling, I am very happy with this purchase. I had a Sony receiver with the same watts prior to this ES model, but this one definitely has a better sound.

Great receiver - a few watch-outs

  • Summary: I upgraded from a Sony TA-9000ES pre-amp so I could use the HDMI & component video switching and add Blu-ray. Very happy with the receiver, but learned a few things not published clearly. DirecTV DVR HDMI output is at native resolution, meaning that channels are kept at their normal res.
