Sony today introduced three new audio/video receivers in its Elevated Standard (ES) product line that deliver high-quality sound and video performance.


Engineered for high-end home theaters, the new STR-DA4400ES, STR-DA3400ES and STR-DA2400ES receivers feature sophisticated A/V technology supporting 1080/24p video signals, the latest audio codecs (Dolby® Digital Plus, Dolby® TrueHD, dts® High Resolution Audio and dts® HD Master Audio) and Faroudja DCDi Cinema® technology for upscaling all video sources to 1080p when connected via HDMI to a compatible high-definition television.


The ES receivers are all designed around a unique construction platform, digital board and a wide band power amplifier to maintain the purity of the audio and video signals by minimizing external vibrations and internal jitter.


The rapid evolution of audio and video has generated increased demand for connectivity and high-performance components, said Tyler Ishida, director of marketing for Sony Electronics' Digital Imaging and Audio Division. This new line of ES receivers delivers the fidelity, build quality and connectivity expected for an outstanding cinematic experience in the home.


The new models utilize a xross media bar-inspired graphical user interface for easy content navigation, Sony's Digital Cinema Auto Calibration for simple surround sound setup, and BRAVIA® Sync for Theatre for easy synchronization of compatible home theater components.


Sony's DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adds control, networking and connectivity options for music playback through various accessories, including a Cradle for iPod (TDM-iP10), a Network Walkman cradle, a PC client device and a Bluetooth® adapter (each is sold separately). The models are also Sirius® and XM Connect-and-Play Ready.

I hope Sony will be putting in a real amplifier section in the new models, rather than just repackaging their HTIB amp and exaggerating the specs.


Previous models rated at 100 w/ch only delivered about 35 w/ch in multichannel mode.


Sony has many other CE products that are very good quality (I own several), so it should invest a bit in their receivers to bring them up to par.
