I read about all the love Onkyo, Denon, HK, Marantz and Pioneer get on this forum. It's time for Sony ES owners to show the love for their home theater center piece. How about I start. I love this machine for its flexibility, power, looks and most important the way the 4ES sounds just excellent! I have owned mine since Oct and have loved every DVD, CD since, separation is great and sound stage is wide really full. Out of 5 stars I give a 5, and would not hesitate to highly recommend this fine receiver. So come on fellas show some love!
