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

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...
