Sony ES Surround Sound receiver. f you crave absolutely breathtaking realism and subtlety for all your music and movie sound, Sony ES has the answer! The STR-DA3ES employs three 32-bit processors for ultra-precise surround decoding and DSP. It also offers an incredible arsenal of surround sound options: built-in decoding for Dolby Digital, DTS, and 6.1-encoded sources, plus Sony's Virtual Matrix 6.1 and Digital Cinema Sound modes. For maximum purity with analog signals (like the output from an SACD player), stereo, 5.1-channel and 7.1-channel analog direct modes bypass all DSP.
The STR-DA3ES also offers heavy-duty amplification: 100 full-bandwidth-rated watts x 6; wide-range response out to 100kHz (great for SACD); high-linearity power capacitors for smooth, expressive audio; and a high-capacity power supply. The sixth channel of power lets you hook up a back surround speaker to complete a seamless 360° soundfield. In good cosmetic condition but the small switch for speaker selector. This should be very easy to replace.
