Michael4JBL,

I posted this because there are a lot of 777es owners out there that aren't aware of the firmware updates.

I see you hate everything Sony, sorry to hear that, this receiver, in my opinion and others, is one of the best receivers ever made. It was so well made that Sony Discontinued it after only 1 year or so, cause it was taking too many sales away from Sony separates.

With the latest firmware upgrade, it give you the ability for Virtual 6.1 for the Dolby Digital ES and DTS EX. I thought that some people might want to get it.

How on earth could you say this is the best receiver ever made? What could qualify this statement to be true?

sony does not make the best of anything.

I said ONE of the best every made. What qualifies it as one of the best receivers ever made? I could go into a lot of details on why I think it is, but I will just say this. It is my opinion, you don't agree? Cool, that is your.

Just out curiousity, what receiver do you own?

I just realize what you said, It was so well made that Sony
Discontinued it after only 1 year or so, cause it was taking too many sales away from
Sony separates.
Man do you know what you are saying??? sony knew they were making a good product and discontuied it because of WHAT!!! it was too good. That is exactly what I am talking about. You say it as if it were a good thing, yet you choose to support the very company that is pushing firmware. Your promoting the gimmicks sony has been pushing and what we are trying to stop.

I personally like the idea of not having to run out and buy a receiver every year. I like that fact that Sony can upgrade the software of their highend units knowing that the hardware of the unit is very good. With firmware upgrades, you get fixes bugs and added features, why would anyone not like that.

And don't tell me that your receiver has no bugs, because everything electronical device has bugs, everything.

I don't support sony the company, i think that by stopping the production of this receiver show that sony is about one thing, money. They had a great product on their hands, and because it took money away from their higher end products, they stopped making it and down graded to the 555es.

I would not buy anything from sony that wasn't in the ES line, sony's high end products are very good in MY OPINION.

And who is "WE?"

Ok, I did a search on firmware. I got 4 entrys that had firmware in the subject. Nothing negitive, just questions.

Anyway. I am asking this seriously, why do you hate sony products so much?
