Powerful Clean Sound And Amazing Audio Features
 
This review is from: Sony STR-DA5200ES - AV receiver - 7.1 channel (Electronics) The STR-DA5200ES is the replacement model for the 2005's STR-DA5000ES. And Indeed it is. There are a few minuses here and there, but the DA5200 has definately replaced the DA5000, for good.Let's begin with the most important improvement of the 5200 over the 5000. Audio.Although the DA5200 only offers a modest 120W RMS of audio power per channel (as opposed to 5000's 170W RMS ...

Amazing!
 
This receiver is really something! I bought this receiver a couple of months ago (sadly before the price drop) and I couldn't be happier with it. Compared with onkyo, kenwood, and other sony receivers I have owned I can say that this receiver is the best that I have heard. The sound is breathtaking, with more than enough power for my fairly large speakers. Every time I turn on a CD, record, or DVD I am amazed at how lifelike the sound is. This receiver is built like a tank with all of the qualit...

Nearly perfect
 
I use it as a preamp for 4X220W + 4x150W system, which lets me hear a lot. The Faroudja video processing is quite simply superb, making much of the overcompressed, sometimes nearly posterized, 480i DirecTV/TiVo S-VHS output. And it has a better upscaler than the Sony 400 DVD HDMI DVD changer or the Sony KDS-R60XBR TV; let the receiver do the work.I am not quite happy with the ability to map any combination of audio and video inputs to the HDMI output and TOS-Link audio output.

Not like ES used to be
 
I have long been a fan of the Sony ES line, but I did not particularly care for this unit. My complaint is not limited to just the ES line, or to Sony. It seems that the most recent models of AV receivers have all jumped on the gadget bandwagon at the expense of sound quality. Sure, they all do a fine job of video switching and even transcoding and scaling, but the quality of the sound has definately taken a tumble. I need good sound and good video, and this series does not provide both. I ...

New Sony 5300ES
 
This new receiver is AWESOME. I replaced a 1999 Sony 777ES with the new 5200 and the difference is notable. The new GUI and auto speaker setup is very easy to use and does a great job adjusting the speakers to match the room.

Disappointing for a "top of the line" unit
 
This receiver will switch video, supports a one-cable display solution, and will power your speakers. So far, so good. However, it has several annoying problems: 1) Even if your speakers are set to LARGE, it feeds the subwoofer with program material. This leads to too strong bass. You can't adjust it on the sub or the receiver, because then the LFE channel will not have the right level. The only solution is to set your speakers to SMALL and set a low cut-off frequency. This is b...

Sony ES STR- DA5200
 
I bought the Sony ES STR-DA5200 once they were released from Sony in October 2006. While the HDMI X 3 inputs works well and using a HDMI Hub, it does not interface well with the Sony Digital Living System VGX-XL1. Overall I am happy with the receiver. The XM Satellite portion works great. The Build-in GUI is great as well. Overall, buy it if you can afford it - but I envision better HDMI connectivity with media centers in the future. Oh, last thing - they should have made it network (IP based), ...

Nice piece
 
3 HDMI inputs,Handsome look,High quality,Great sound,like the GUI features(on screen). GREAT PRICE!!!!!! Highly recomended. Replaced a Yamaha receiver. My decision was between Yamaha,Onkyo and Sony. The 50% off list made the difference, plus the 3 HDMI inputs.

Sony STRDA5200ES works extremely well
 
Extremely easy to set up. USB connection works perfectly. HD upconversion works for VCR, DVD and even a Laser Disc. Automatic sound settting better than manual setup. Remote replaces all the other ones except for TIVO. On screen display helpful for setup but generally use direct controls most of the time.
