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.
