Sony's ES line
of AV receivers has been growing
for months now, but it was the CEDIA-announced STR-DA6400ES and STR-DA5400ES
that we were most interested in. As predicted, these buggers were pretty beefy, but it's hard to gripe with all those ports around back. We thought the no-frills styling looked pretty sophisticated in person, and when we got real close, we could almost feel those seven channels of amplification just emanating. You know the drill -- peep the gallery below when you're good and ready.
