More specifically, the Sony STR-DA2400ES. Of course, im happy to hear about peoples experiences with the ES line in general. ive now decided to finally pony up for a mid ranged HDMI A/V receiver. ive been giving a serious look to the STR-DA2400ES. I like the fact that the ES series comes with a 5 year warranty for parts and labor compared to two for the STR series. So any imput would of course be appreciated. Sony Style has a 2 year no interest promo going on which is what peaked my interest in the first place.

No, but it's probably adjustable, either at the TV or the receiver. But you really should not be using the output of the TV to feed sound to the receiver, as the TV will only output stereo. With the source devices connected directly to the AV receiver, you'll get surround capability, up to the maximum supported by the source component, AV receiver, and connection type.

I have a 2006 ES model which works very well...but that said.

I've moved on to higher-end Onkyo units and seen even better performance.

I want to thank everyone who took the time to respond to my thread. I ended up going with the Sony STR-DG1200. Again, thanks!
