Summary: I bought this receiver from this dealer because they had a great price. It replaced a Marantz SR 6003, which in itself was a great receiver. I'm a Sony fan however. This one sets up very easily and the automatic equalization works much better than other manufacturers. I'm disappointed that HD radio isn't part of this but not many offer that yet. Also disappointed that there is no Internet connect for radio.
Summary: The STR-DA5400 is a versatile home theater recceiver with all the functions of the most expensive recievers at a more reasonable cost. *6 Assignible HDMI inputs *Microphone (included) to automaticall set up your listening room -WOW- *Upconvert any video source to HD. *130 wqtts to all the speakers @ 8 ohms *Dual cone HDMI outputs so this receiver can run 2 totally seperate shows to 2 different TVs.
Summary: It is all about the sound quality for me... I have been using Pioneer Elite Receivers for over a decade but after reading so many positive reviews raving about this units sound quality I decided to give it a try... They were right, This is such a sweet sounding unit... NOT a powerhouse by any means but the imagery and staging and overall sound quality is mind blowing. Voices are so realistic and out front that movies come to new life....
Summary: I'd been wanting to upgrade my old mid-level receiver to better match my speaker system for some time. Getting back into the research and finding the deals that were available on this receiver made me decide to go for a higher level of components. Then, when my friend's dad (you know, the techie-guy that researches everything to the nth degree) gave me a demo of this same Sony receiver -- only a few years older -- I was sold!! I made the purchase that evening.
Sony 5400 Sacd player is the best under $4k player out there !

Summary: I have heard many many cd players and this newer Sony 5400 model has out done themselves .Their last player was over $4k and this player bought for under $1200 is better in everyway including a much more fully sound with no edgyness whatsoever .I was told they moved their cd player division to maylasia where the quality is still very high as well as the parts quality but labor is 3x cheaper ,if made in Japan this unit would go for over $5k !
