Sony STR-DG920 vs Sony STR-DA2400ES Receivers

by review203 / May 19, 2009 11:04 AM PDT

How does the Sony STR-DA2400ES Receiver compare to the Sony STR-DG920?
The STR-DG920 gets a CNET editors' excellent rating. Does the same rating apply to the 2400ES? Is the 2400 ES a better receiver and worth the extra money? How does either receiver compare to the ONKYO TX-SR606?

I would love to know the answer to this question as well. Furthermore, I would like to know if the DA2400ES is compatible with S-Air as I can find no information about this and would prefer to have wireless rear speaker system.

Thanks

Great Receiver

I have a Sony STR-DA2400ES Receiver, I picked it mostly as it has the largest number of audio decoders until you got into their top of the line. I have not compared it to the other Sony you mentioned but I can say I have never regretted getting the STR-DA2400ES Receiver.

It might of just been my situation but I had a mix of new stuff and old stuff on the video side, HDMI from the HD Cable box and Blu-Ray Player, component from the my Panasonic DVD Recorder w/Hard Disk, Component or HDMI from the Sony 400 DVD SD DVD changer, and copmposite from my video repeater from another Panasonic DVD/HD recorder in another room.

You can read my review on the Sony site, but I can tell you is is one clean system. All video inputs can be defined to an audio input, it has two optical and on coax digital audio inputs, HDMI to the TV and so on.

Everything and I mean everything can be tweaked, there is no doubt you have to lean on the manual which is pretty good to get the most out of it as far as configs.

For me the auto-calibrate for the 7.1 worked perfectly as far as setting the right levels and balance then I adjusted some things to my own preference.

Check out ebay I gont mine there from an authorized Sony dealer, so my warranty and all that goos stuff was honored from Sony when I registered it and I saved a lot.

I know there is better stuff out there but for the money it blows my socks off. The sound is great, the flexibility is great.

As I said I can't speak to the others, but I doubt you will be unhappy with the STR-DA2400ES.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
