    Im interested in the receiver, but as far as I can tell nobody sells it anymore. Anybody know where I can find one? New or used.

    Ted, the 'DA777ES is a two-year-old model, so I highly doubt you will find a new one anywhere. For a used one, check eBay.

    Ted,

    I don't know where you live, but Sony has outlet stores around the country. They do sell them refurbished with the full factory warranty. If I am not mistaked, you can get them for around $800-$900. What state do you live in and I could tell you if there is a store near by.

    Thanks, Brandon_T! I didnt think Wisconsin would have a store, but they did. Kenosha is a little over 2 hours from me so it isnt that bad of a drive either.

    Ted,

    I was at the outlet in Kenosha in the middle of July. It really wasn't much of an outlet anymore. At one time it was across the interstate in a different discount mall and it seemed to have several refurbished pieces, but now it was mostly new merchandise selling at or above the prices I've seen in any other store. Even the refurbished pieces, of which there were very few, were quite pricey. Especially since they were several years old. You may get lucky though. It's possible I was just there at a bad time. I also did own the str-da777es at one time and it is by far the best receiver I have ever owned. Unfortunately I had to sell it to help pay for other things.

    Ted,

    Personally I would forget the 777 and either get the new DA5es ($900ish new w/ 5 yr warranty) or wait for the new Sony pre/pro.

    Hah!, just when I expressed interest in the 777 one shows up at Ebay. Best part is the guy selling it lives in the same city I work in! Too bad I decided to go with the a5es, onkyo 898, or a jvc RX-DP10VBK. I like the Kenwood Sovereign 5700 but it is only a 5-channel amp with 2 extra amps for a second source only(whats up with that?). Anybody have any other receiver suggestions for $1500 or less?
