New Sony AV Amp
« on: August 28, 2006, 12:25 »
100Wx7 channels - HDMI - CVS - ES Build Silver STRDA1200ES

With solid build quality and supporting HDMI digital video switching @ 1080p resolution along with up-conversion of composite, S-Video sources to Component Video, the STRDA1200ES (1200ES) minimises the need for numerous connections.

The feature DA1200ES decodes a multitude of the latest audio formats such as Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, dts, dts-ES, dts 96/24, dts neo:6 and Sony's Digital Cinema Sound processing. The AV receiver also comes with two assignable Component Video inputs, two coaxial and four optical digital inputs, as well as five inputs and two outputs for AV, and three inputs and one output for audio.

Ease of installation is covered with Sony's new DCAC* auto set up system while the newly simplified design with large LCD display not only makes operation easy but assures integration into a wide variety of living environments.





Interesting. Cost 1.2k in aussie dollars. Wondering if it will ever come to Singapore...Got 2xHDMI inputs, good for PS3 and your DVD/HD-DVD player :p Think the HDMI is v1.1 or 1.2.

It has tons of digital inputs...100W at 6ohms...

100x7W

wow.. 100 channels of 7W each ;)

seriously though.. it's sad that Sony's "abandoned" their S-Master digital amp technology (well they've abandoned SACD etc etc, so whats new...). I would think that as time went on more and more Sony receivers would incorporate S-Master, instead its left to HTiBs and only the two top end amps (DA7100ES and 9100ES)

Still.. these days, HDMI switching and upconversion seems useful.

its not as far-fetched as one might think... the Yamaha sound projectors (YSP-1, YSP-800, etc) have 42 drivers, each with its own digital amplifier
