Depending on the results of the return of a Denon receiver in the shop, I may be AGAIN searching for a receiver. I have heard that the sound of the Sony Da5 ES is wonderful for movies and "Good" for music. I have a couple questions on the Sony DA5 ES receiver: 1. How bad is the S-video flickering bug? I have heard that on a few fade ins from black is a "flicker" of the screen. Does this happen often (I'm sure it can't be every fade in/out)? How distracting is it? Does it happen with the composite connections? 2. How good is the Sony at picking up a digital signal? My old Yamaha can pick up the signal almost immediately - no problems playing a CD from digital out. The Denon 3802 has no delay at all. I had a Marantz 8200 that had major delays (up to 2 seconds). 3. Any other known defects with the DA5 ES? Thanks for any help!
