The 985 has more 'options' than the DA1ES does. What the DA1ES does NOT have:

2nd room audio option.
B-speaker connection.
11 DCS modes(only 7 on DA1ES).
6-channel surround capability and the DTS modes that go with it.
On Screen Display.

You have to remember, the 985 is the top of the DE line, while the DA1ES is the bottom of the ES line. Feature for feature, the 985 is actually the better unit.

The DA 1ES preceeds the DE 985 by one model year and therefore has less features. The DA 2ES is a contemporary of the DE 985 and has far more features.

The DE985 is not even on the Sony Page anymore. I believe the DA1ES is from 2002 vintage.

The DA1ES is in fact a current model. It came at the same time as the DA2ES and DA4ES. I think Sony wants to keep the price down for its ES series entry level and therefore cut way back on its feature list.

I beleive that the first series was the DA 1, 3, 5ES followed by the DA 2, 4, 7ES which is the most recent.

Some input from the other side of the Atlantic:
Over here the DA1ES is known as the DB780 (and DA2ES as DB1080). This would indicate that the DB780 came out the same year as the DE985 (DE models always end on a 5 to distinguish them more easily from the DB series).

Goldstt,
The DA1ES would probably have a bit higher quality amps (and other components) although the specified wattage might not indicate it. Also the ES warranty is a nice plus.
Personally I'd go ES, but that's just me.

I think the DA1ES, DA2ES, DA4ES and DA7ES all made their public debut around August, 2002. The DA2ES looks like an improved DB1070 with overall more features, a longer warranty and a lower price than the DB1070. Also, for whatever reason, Sony stopped posting the ES components on its website in July, 2002. I asked a Sony rep about this, and she didn't know why.
