10/10 7.1Ch AV Receiver,
This review is from: Sony STR-DA5400ES AV Receiver (Electronics)
The muts nuts 7.1Ch Receiver.
A great perfomer of a lot of trades, no wonder it's got awards and it handles everything you can chuck at it and more. I've never had mine trip out, and have had one since they were released.
If your'e thinking of buying this then you will need to invest in some good speakers all 8 of them to show the full potential of this unit.
There are some other reputable places on the internet selling these at just under £1400 brand new and with free delivery.
