Completely Fine

ChrisS, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I have this receiver hooked up to a Sony panel and a PS4 which I use for blurays and netflix. The receiver is driving Definitive Mythos STs and matched deftech center and rears. Here's the good news: The rig sounds great for both music and movies. Good job Sony and Definitive. (I speculate that the Mythos STs with their powered subs do not load the receiver very hard. Your mileage may vary.) The receiver and included microphone also did a great job with calibration.

Good job Sony

  • Summary: Sound is very dynamic and easy to adjust. I have a sony tv which integrated nicely. The power can be felt in action movies and the reciever never gets hot. Picture is also very nice. The unit is heavy. Looking through the vent holes, you can see the quality of the unit. Its a big step up from sony's regular line.
  • Pros: Great sound, awesome picture, all the connectivity that you will ever need, easy GUI, plenty of power, build quality
  • Cons: None yet

ES - it stands for horrible service

Raheem, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: You spend a ton of money buying from a brand you think you can trust, instead you get a total piece of junk. The receiver kept prompting me to upgrade the firmware; I got emails prompting me to upgrade the firmware, so I upgraded the firmware. Well now, I have a wife who is upset with me because we have a HT system that is unusable because it won't freakin' start. I mean really, 10-7 support for a system I paid this much money for.

  • Summary: Got this to replace a STR-DA4600ES. The 5800 will handle anything you throw at it. Plenty of HDMI ports, streaming, LAN, and tons of speaker connections. The ES app on Andriod works great for controlling it. Also, the Network app for the party play feature works with no problems. The GUI makes it easy to navigate the ton of options available. I did add the surround high speakers since it has them. A nice effect for some movies.

ES - excellence and superiority

4LabsReno, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: The STR DA 5800 ES was ordered online, delivered, and set up in less than a week. Surprisingly better sound than expected, and much easier to connect than the STR DA 5600 ES, which it replaced. I was able to add a second subwoofer, and the high speakers, and the sound is phenomenal. So happy to have chosen the STR DA 5800 ES over all the others I reviewed. Thanks again Sony.

SONY AV RECEIVER

Thomas Kasper, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: wenn ich genug Geld an der Börse gemacht habe, wird das Gerät STR DA 5800es bzw. Nachfolgegerät von mir gekauft. Ich kaufe schon seit der 6.1 Version diese Geräte und bin stehts voll zufrieden gestellt worden. habe zur Zeit den STR DA 1030 und bin mit ihm zufrieden. Schade, das immer abgespeckte Geräte von SONY mit angeboten werden, um den Massenbedarf zu decken. Dafür gibt's genügend andere Anbieter.

STR-DA5800ES - ab jetzt kein SONY mehr!

Troppmann "Maus88", Amazon
12 October 2013
  • Summary: Hallo, meiner Meinung nach hat der STR-DA5800ES einen Softwarefehler, der von SONY trotz einiger Softwareupdates noch nicht behoben ist. Wenn der Verstärker mit dem Hauptschalter eingeschaltet wird springt" der 12V Trigger immer wieder auf CRTL obwohl der Trigger auf INPUT bei ZONE SETUP gesetzt wurde (Seite 118+119). Dieser wird z.B. benötigt um einen Subwoofer vom Verstärker ein und aus zu schalten.
