Sony STR-DA2800ES A/V Receiver Review


The Sony STR-DA2800ES is a bright light in a typically dull AV receiver market, largely thanks to its home automation and network features. At $999 it is unlike any other receiver on the market.

Built-in support for most automation systems ; A comprehensive suite of streaming features, including Netflix ; Comes with IR blasters and macro capability ; 4-port Ethernet switch ; Best user interface on the market ; 5-year warranty

300 activation fee to use full Control4 suite ; Inaccurate Auto-Setup & Mic system ; No Airplay Support ; No pre-outs for external amp ; Non-independent dual subwoofer output controls
