Sony STR-DA5500ES receiver

 

This 7.1 Sony A/V receiver has integrated media sharing through DLNA and Internet radio support

Internet radio integration, plenty of HDMI inputs and outputs

Media sharing only works with a small range of formats (and no HD streaming), very expensive

If you've got a large shared music library or love Internet radio, Sony's STR-DA5500ES is an excellent choice for an A/V receiver. It will perform its best when paired with a high quality 7.1 set of home theatre speakers, a good television and a range...

Sony STRDA5500ES

 

Best receiver for stereo music. Internet radio. Six-in/Two-out HDMI inputs. Excellent video processing.

The Sony STRDA5500ES is a very good 7.1 receiver featuring internet radio and is best suited to people who have a large collection of vinyl or CDs.

Sound quality, feature set, flexibility

SONY STR-DA5500ES

 

Superb sound quality, this is the best sounding surround sound receiver I have ever heard, especially for music, something they are not normally as good at as stereo amps are.Truly awesome for movies, games and T.V. as well, of course.

It could do with a 'pure audio' mode. It has an analogue direct setting which works really well, but can only be used for analogue signals. A pure audio mode that works with digital as well as analogue inputs doesn't make as big a difference, but works...
