I've tried doing searches on a few forums and not much has come up so I thought I'd ask if anyone has had the opportunity to listen to this and what your thoughts are on it for home theater use? I listen to very little music. Unfortunately there's no stores locally carrying this model so I can't listen to it, but I was able to listen to the model below it the STR-DA3ES today and it provided a very powerful performance for home theater. The unit itself provides 3-32 Bit processors, a variety surround formats (DD, DD-PLII, DD-EX, DTS-ES, DTS-ES Discrete, DTS-ES Matrix, DTS-NEO:6, plus Sony's Cinema DSP's). Flexible features including adjustable bass management for each channel, Equalizer, Sound Field Customization. Multi Channel inputs(5.1 and 7.1). I can't give the description justice so if your interested Crutchfield's website has a pretty good description of it. Thanks in advance.
