Battle of the Sonys: TA-E9000ES vs. STR-DA4ES


The Sony STR-DA4ES and the STR-DA7ES offer the processing options and completeness that those who prefer affordable separates. But which is for you? We break them down for you.

Everyone bad mouths Sony receivers, but the ES series are very well made.

I love my DA4ES. I especially love the build quality. This thing feels solid and well built

Only one. The remote really sucks

Expert review by : Charles (



I shopped around relentlessly before choosing the DA4. I am a college student and not a rich one by any means. I needed a high quality product that would satisfy my desire for high quality music as my 1st priority, HT for my 2nd and not cost a fortune....

Build Quality, Sound Quality, Almost endlessly customizable, drives low impedance speakers well, classic good looks, 2 multi channel inputs

All channel driven power is rumored to be a bit slim, remote complicates simple operations

Sony Strda 4 es receiver


This receiver is a work of art. Sony has created a flagship receiver at a modest price (about a dollar a watt). I am enoying movie theatre and concert hall sound in my living room! If I step on some popcorn or spill a drink - it's in my house. Finally,...

Built like a tank ; Clean design ; Powerful ; All the choices for surround entertainment ; Auto decode is wonderful ; Remote is easy to use

Operations manual is confusing at times
