Overall pretty nice but a few cavaets:
The receiver buzzes after it's been on for a while. There is also a low level hiss that is present if standing close to the speaker. For this level of receiver, I wouldn't expect such a thing.

The amp section provides plenty of power for my speakers (AR) and roomsize (about 20x20).

The remote is pretty powerful, though difficult to use.

Still, overall a good deal at about $1K bought about a year and a half ago. These days it seems the price for this level of receiver has gone down some.

I've had my 7ES since June of 2000, bought new with a Sony discount at the studio store, so cost me only a hair under $800 cash. At that price, this was a steal and a half. I can't believe this baby is five years old. It is a bit hard to get around the interface of the unit and the cool remote, but it sounds amazing for a receiver and has been incredibly reliable all these years. Reading around the Internet tonight, I'm pretty excited to find that this is a stand-out model. Should help me get top dollar when I'm ready to upgrade to a receiver with HDMI inputs and outputs in the next year or so. Probably one of the few things I ever bought that lost almost no value in the first couple of years, though I wonder how much my HD-ready Panasonic purchased with a hefty employee discount is worth a year later... Bet that's still worth more than I paid for it, too.

It will be hard to ever bring myself to pay full price at a dealer again!

Dear sir, I have bought the DA777ES . But i find the manual is insufficient regarding to various term use. It does not explains especially various mode in calibrating the sound system.

Million thanks.....Alvin Chong
