  • Summary: My first SONY I still have and it's 20 years old (STR-D2070). Still works perfect but I wanted new technology. I went for the 5000ES and can say I'm beyond impressed. I have pushed it to the limit over the past couple years and it has never failed. Sony put a lot of technology into this receiver and combined it with 40 years of experience. They have truly created a product ahead of it's time. EDIT: I first wrote this review in June 2008.

Awesome Receiver!!!

  • Summary: I am running Cerwin Vega VE15F speakers with this and it sounds amazing. I have been to concerts that are not as loud! It also is a 7.1 channel system, not 5.1 as displayed here (has outputs for both surround back speakers.) Pros: Fairly simple to set up and get going. Lots of good clean power (actually produces around 220 watts per channel, more than the rated 170), nice looking unit (the entire front is milled from one solid thick piece of brushed aluminum), runs cool...

  • Summary: Theres a reason this is a this is a $ 1500 unit. I can't elp but to be impressed by the unreal sound quality of this receiver. This is from a guy who has a Mark Levinson system for music. I know music. This receiver blew my mind. Yes you can get receivers with the same power ( FTC sine wave rated) for a lot less money, but listen to the depth, the realism and the purity of the frequencies and you'll think that this is a $10,000 tube amp.
