Posted by at 10:34 am on July 7, 2010

Sony Tuesday announced the upcoming release of three different Elevated Standard AV receivers, as well as a new Blu-ray Disc player, all of which are 3D-ready and aimed at the specialty AV channel.

The receivers are the STR-DA5600ES, STRA-DA4600ES, and STR-DA3600ES, and will be available in August and September at approximate prices of $2,000, $1,100 and $800. The Blu-ray player, model number BDP-S1700ES, will arrive next month at around $400.

The models feature Sony’s Digital Media Port for simple connection to an iPod and other digital music players, and are both XM and Sirius ready.

Full Custom Control

Sony’s 2010 ES AV receivers feature IR input jacks and two-way serial control. They also offer control over IP which allows installers to easily integrate the receivers into the leading home automation systems including Control4, Crestron, AMX, Savant, Ultimate Remote Control, RTI, and others. Sony has worked closely with leading control companies and is a Control4 Certified Partner, an AMX Device Discovery Partner, Crestron Integration Partner, and a Savant Excellence in Audio and Video Partner.

The new models offer 3D pass-through and flexible multi-room features. They can connect to a home broadband network through an Ethernet port offering easy access to digital photos, music and videos from Digital Life Network Alliance (DLNA) sources. They also function as an Ethernet hub featuring four ports that connect other network devices.

Additionally, the Ethernet connection provides access to both Shoutcast Internet Radio and Rhapsody Music Service, and offers easy access to firmware upgrades via the Internet. The STR-DA5600ES model also functions as a DLNA Live Audio Server that can stream music to other DLNA clients.

ES Quality

All Sony ES products are supported by a five-year limited manufacturer warranty, a ninety-day advanced exchange program (2-3 day expedited replacement unit), and a dedicated installer support line to San Diego-based CEDIA trained product experts.

The models will be available through authorized Sony ES dealers and custom installers across the country. For further information on the products, please visit www.sony.com/es.
