    Looking around I keep coming back to the Sony DA3ES. Lots 'o stuff and from a previous post a $650 price tag from Oade Bro's.
    What else should I be looking at, and anyone know when to expect them shipping?
    If I can't wait anyone know where I can find last years 444ES on-line?
    Thanks,
    wally

    wally,
    I was told this month by a Sony marketing rep. I picked up the V444es about a year ago for that price including shippig charge. Personally I would wait for the new model as Sony may have ironed out a few issues with the V series (excessive heat, volume control flakies, make believe 6.1, etc)
    It looks like the DA5es is the one to get with all the formats including the 6 channel and firmware upgrades via RS32, but I would wait to hear the real facts on the DA3es since $650 is a great pricepoint.
    The Sony's offer great flexibility and excellent DSP's. I can't wait to hear the new models with 6.1 and DPL2.
