Customer Reviews

I am really hoping it doesn't go out completely at some point.
Ga Dawg
The good news is once you are using the receiver normally other than the lack of OSD for volume changes, you don't really interact with the menu's a lot.
C. James
There is a very rudimentary equalizer, but you can only adjust the Bass or the Treble up and down; that's it.

The Good:
- Sound Quality, nothing else matters if this is not right and Sony nailed this.
- Sound Fields and decoders, with great Front High Speaker Support HD-DCS Digital Cinima Sound (can't tell you how good this sounds)
- Direct control of nearly everything, allowing good integration with Programmable Remotes like Harmony

The Bad:
- The Menu system -- very slow, no volume OS display
- Odd exceptions to features, like PIP only working with two sources. Ironically anything can be plugged in to those two making it even stranger.
- Auto-Set up getting speaker size wrong and no way to force it to auto-cal with the right size
- How hot it runs when in stand-by/off. I use HDMI pass-through and that keeps some of it on all the time and it throws off a lot of heat.

Overall: 4
The Sony DA1800ES is a very solid AV receiver with great sound but the feature set is a little quirky, there is so much right in this receiver it is a shame that Sony appears to have rushed this to the market to get something in the high quality audio line up at a lower price
In the end I care most about sound quality and the 1800ES lets you get at a high quality sound on a moderate budget. The ES amp is the star of this show and over-powers its shortcomings in the menu system. Most of the places it falls short are more or less superficial, but annoying none the less.

Sound Quality: 5
This is where Sony pulled no punches, this is their solid ES series sound, this sounds as good in 5.1 and a lot better in 7.1 than my 2400ES and way better than the Sony 1040. The 1800ES holds solid with a rich and full sound from very low volumes though rocking the house down.

I got this receiver to control a 5.1 system and a second zone outside. I wanted to be able to listen to two different sources at the same time. Unfortunately, even the research I did before hand, like reading the manual and checking reviews, etc did not prepare me for the nightmare of trying to figure out how to set it up. After posting in the forums, and getting a response from Sony and calling Sony, I found that only Analog signals can be sent out to Zone 2, and most of the cool features like Airplay, Bluetooth, etc cannot go out to Zone 2.

I gave the receiver 3 stars because of the extremely limited functionality of Zone 2, and because the manual was clearly written by someone who should have taken another career path.

Here is the request I sent to support...............................

I have an apple TV and a Comcast Cable Box - each connected via HDMI to my STRDA1800ES.

1. How do I watch Cable TV in my main room, and listen to audio from Apple TV in the second room? Right now, I can only get AM or FM radio in Zone 2.

2. How can I get bluetooth audio / airplay working in Zone 2. I understand that out of the box the 1800 may not do this, but is there really no way?

Please note, I have a second amp to power zone 2, which has both Optical and Analog inputs, but no HDMI - if need be, and it would work, I'd be willing to add another intermediary component like and HDMI to RCA converter, DAC, etc to get this working.

And their response...................................

I've double checked the specifications of the STRDA1800ES. The second room function of the receiver only supports analog signal.

Don't get me wrong, this thing is a great unit, but it lacks a couple features I expected.

Graphic Equalizer - Want to do something other than bass/treble? No. Not yours.

Decode Dolby Digital Plus - Sometimes it works, sometimes it falls back to stereo, sometimes it fails completely and must be rebooted. This is especially infuriating watching netflix via the PS3; more than half the time I get picture and no sound when netflix tries to output 5.1. You'd think Sony would pay extra attention to interaction with their flagship equipment and its flagship app.

Its airtunes implementation is pretty bad - it inherits the volume control from iTunes (nowhere is this documented) and ignores the previous amp volume. Until you learn to set the usually ignored in-iTunes volume control, you'll be treated to full-volume, ear-and-speaker-damaging blasts both at start and at random. Its sound is also sharp and crunchy compared to using the Toslink input, potentially due to bit-depth reduction for the iTunes-side volume control. If you counted your input needs using the internal airtunes, add one optical to your needs. (full disclosure: I use lossless compression for my audio - no mp3 here if I can help it, and connect to an airport express via toslink, then to the computer using ethernet; this isn't a delivery or source issue)

The auto-setup is definitely inferior to other companies' implementations. Set it up straight, or tune by ear. The auto-setup gives strange and inconsistent distance numbers for speakers (the numbers have little bearing on reality, and change from run to run)

The remote, manual, and OSD suggest PS3 control. Not so, but that's hardly a problem.

(edited to clarify the DD+ issue)
(dropped from 3 to 2 stars due to the DD+ issue continuing)
