DE985 or DA1ES???

The DA1ES is .09% THD, as well as the DA2ES.
RATED distortion levels are hardly relevant anyhow.

I looked hard at both the DA1ES and the STR-DE985. I finally went with the STR-DE985 because of its extra features and DVD coax input (instead of the DA1ES' optical) and a big sale at Circuit City.

I've found the 985 is a great receiver and I'm glad I chose it. I wouldn't trade it for the DA1ES.

The fact that both the DA 1ES and DA 2ES have been rated at .09% THD is very important because it is proof that these two units are not true ES build quality. They may have ES tags on the outside, but on the inside where it really counts the ES Quality parts just aren't there.

Most humans will not be able to detect the difference anyways. So, I'm still happy with what I got.

Quentin, have fun with your new unit. BTW, the DA1ES does have a DVD coaxial input. It just so happens you can select it for use with either CD/SACD or DVD.

I didn't say that there was an audible difference in the Harmonic Distortion between a unit with true ES quality Amps that has .05% THD and a unit that has QS quality Amps and has .09% THD.

What I was saying is that it does indicate very clearly what quality of parts were used in each case.

Quality counts, and having the benefit of true ES quality parts will enhance the sound quality in many more areas than just lower THD. The THD rating is an indicator of what quality Amps were used, and only true ES quality Amps can produce a THD rating of .05% THD.
