The clarity of this amp is amazing, especially when paired with the HAP-s1 player

  • Summary: I bought the Sony STR-DA5800es a couple of months ago to replace my trusty Onkyo 805 and have been blown away by the difference in sound quality. The clarity of this amp is amazing, especially when paired with the HAP-s1 player. The ethernet connectivity is useful too.

Sony str-da5800es

  • Summary: Best AV receiver out of many I have had over the years. Great user interface, very sophisticated yet easy to set up and use. Also delivers great sound and power.
  • Pros: Best at everything
  • Cons: Would have been nice to have FM HD but I hardly listen to FM anymore so not a big deal for me.

  • Summary: I am a listener who must hear everything from the movie or music. Every breath, whisper, every instrument within the orchestra (not just a blended orchestral sound). I have to clearly hear every hit on a drum/cymbal from Neil Peart's Drum kit to the point I can tell where on the drum head it was...

WHAT IS ANY PRODUCT WORTH IF YOU CANNOT SECURE PARTS OR SERVICE!!!!!!

  • Summary: I have truly enjoyed Sony high end and ES equipment for many years, and all is generally wonderful until you have to have it repaired, and I do not say that lightly. I have reviewed the new Sony STR-DA5800ES, and it is a beautiful component indeed, but I urge buyers to consider one very important...

TOP NOTCH QUALITY BUILT RECEIVER!!!

Mie D. Torre "oceanchild", Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: This is the best receiver I've ever owned in my 20yrs owning SONY ES line. It is hooked up using multiple blu rays players to multiple TVs throughout the house. I decided not to activate the Control4 as of they require additional hidden cost you wouldn't know about.

Best AV Receiver

Kevin D. Keepers, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: This is not a cheap receiver but is worth every penny. I can operate all my equipment from one remote and from my iPhone as well. Setup was easy and the auto-calibration system set all my speakers to a perfectly balanced level.

Sony, Still going strong

Earthroamer, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: I replaced my 18 year old Sony DA80ES receiver which finally had technical issues with the new Sony STR-DA5800ES. Prior to purchasing the STR-DA5800ES, I tried some cheaper $700 receivers, but none of them held a candle to my old DA80ES.

Best sound quality I have heard from an AVR, but the GUI is lacking

MW, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: I've been a Denon guy for many years. I caught this Sony AVR on sale for just over half the list price, so I decided to make a switch. The main thing to note is that the power and the quality of sound is impressive to say the least....really outstanding.
