    Hi

    I'm interested in a Sony STRVA555ES. Can anyone give me some comments on the receiver, particularly on the best price I've seen it at £739?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Its getting a bit long in the tooth now but WHF thought it was good in their awards. I had one for an overnight demo and I thought it was good in stereo but I didnt get a chance to try its surround performance. Im pretty sure you could get one for less than £739.

    New STR-DA5000ES is out really soon, not saying it's as good, worse or better, but worth a look.

    I love my VA-555ES. I went thought many AV recievers before settling on the 555ES, and have no desire to upgrade any time soon.

    I'm also VERY pleased with mine. It was between the VA555ES and Pioneer 2011.
    The Sony won because of its superior 'music' qualities, as well as a damm fine AV amp. As I had some older but good Technics amps in stock, it was an easy job to use one of these to make a 7.1 system. And as they say 'MORE BOXES IS BETTER' lol..:D

    This AV lark is getting like computers.....its out of date before you get it home. But the VA555ES has enough toys and knobs to keep me happy for some while yet.:smoke:
