      Reviewed by Stephen Withers, 12th September 2012. The Sony STR-DA5700ES is an excellent AV receiver that offers an unparalleled feature set coupled with a superb audio performance. Whilst not the cheapest option available, few other receivers will prove as capable or as effective at enhancing your audio and video system - Highly Recommended.

      24bit/48kHz in the various Mch modes is just not good enough for an AVR of half this price! :( For £2000 I expect to get 24bit/192kHz in 5.1 as a minimum spec.. :lease: I'll stay with my ancient Denon rather than 'up grade' to this thing.:laugh:

      Can we agree to disagree?

      I think it's bordering on 'art'!!

      If only I had the money...

      I managed to win one of these on eBay a couple of weeks back in almost brand new condition fully Boxed with all the accessories. There was splash marks all over the front fascia, a clear varnish of some sort so I used nail varnish remover to get it all off.

      Anyway I love the look of STR-DA5700ES just like I loved the look of the STR-DA5400ES that it's replacing.

      There doesn't seem to be many fans of these Sony Receivers on AVF but I'm telling you the STR-DA5700ES is an AMAZING bit of kit!!
