So I've been hunting for a new receiver. I've had a STR30ES for about 4 years now and have REALLY enjoyed it. However, I'd like to run 6.1 or 7.1 and have analog inputs for DVD-Audio...and a bit more power would be nice. I've been looking at the new 1000 and 2000ES series from Sony...but apparantly they have dropped one of my favorite features...the 3 band equalizer on each different speaker. Mega blah. After internet hunting, I found that the 4ES had it, and then tracked down one at a local store....for the above mentioned price after a small amount of haggling. I've spent about 4 hours setting it up...and now the wife is asleep so I can't even try it out....oh well. Tomorrow. What do you think? I get ripped off, or did I do OK???? Just curious.
