    Reviews on this model range from awful to very good.  It is so loaded with features that quite a bit of time would be required to give it a good test.  All analogue inputs are internally digitized for processing, no pure analog path available.








    One reveiwer mentioned that his unit had gold plated contacts, this unit doesn't.  There could have been production variations.




    This model has 3 I/O boards.  Digital audio on the bottom, analogue audio in the middle, video on the top.  There are failures (solder failures) on some of the audio inputs of my unit.  These repairs would cost quite a lot if you have to pay for them.  There is a fair amount of disassembly required to get the audio I/O board out of this model.




    The original learning remote pictured is RM-P1000, very similar in style to the remote for my departed STR-AV1070X receiver.  This number of buttons can be overwhelming, but sometimes easier than going through menus on some current remotes.  This model uses command mode AVSystem1.  You will have to change a Sony receiver to AVSystem2 if it is in the same room.

    A beautiful device.
    I had two of them and they performed brilliantly.
    The only flaw was a little hiss coming from the tweeters - probably due all that digital processors.
    They were both European versions with gold plated contacts.

    If you are looking for the best price/performance 2-channel preamp which is also easy to get - this is it!

    gerchy-It will probably take a while before I appreciate what all the TA-E1000ESD will do. My preliminary test showed that it can sound quite good.

    I plan to repair/replace the connectors before I put it into my system. I might also upgrade some capacitors when I have it apart.

    David S- If you are into infrasonic bass the TA E1000ES' Digital EQ reaches all the way down to 18 hz!

    Its Parametric EQ is one of the most advanced of any Consumer Grade piece of audio gear and is the model that Sony used to help them design subsequent models. This pre-amp will leave any "tweaker" gitty with all its flexibility and ability for different sound modes. Thanks so much for the pics and write-up! I have had many offers for this pre-amp, its just been too hard to part with. Every "audiophile" should at one point in his/her life get a chance to audition this piece. It is a "eye-opener" of what a digital pre-amp can do.

    I used to have a couple of articles referencing organ works that went down to about 16 Hz.  I borrowed one of those pieces from a local library (about 10 years ago) & recorded it onto DAT.  I still have the DAT recording but lost the information on what piece this recording is.

    scott1019-It is nice to hear from people that have a positive opinion about this model.  I am anxious to get the rear connections repaired so I can give it a serious workout.

    No problem..  This is one of those really special pieces that is certainly worth holding on to., esp. compared to what Sony is putting out now-a-days.

    The Stereophile Magazine Test CD 2 has a 10 hz test track on it among its 31 tracks. I've run it with my 1,000 watt 4 channel 10 hz capable Subwoofer and its 70 Amp power supply and it would make empty glasses move silently across the table which made it become one of my favorite demonstrations.

    Nice pictures, looks like it'd be a good unit to own. Question:

    Since gerchy said his TA-E1000ESD pair hissed from the tweeters does yours also do that? My TA-E9000ES has a hiss which I asked about it here and was told it could be due to some bad soldering, but it could just be an undocumented "feature."

    If I have no signal input & turn the volume control up to 100% then there is a faint hiss through the tweeter.

    With audio to one of the inputs (Video3 in this test) and another input selected (Video 4), the high frequency bleeds through.  With the volume at 100% audio is faint throuth the tweeter, I can hear it from a distance of about 8 feet if I an directly in front of the speaker.  Audio is only coming out of the tweeter, I hear nothing with my ear right up to the other speakers.

    Maxx-I better check that my neighbours are away before I might try that.  My townhouse has pretty good sound isolation, but bass carries.

    I used to own a TA-E1000ES, but sold it when I upgraded to another Sony component. One thing I do recall was the crosstalk I got when I had a television connected. When the TV was on, but the CD was selected on E1000ESD, I was able to hear the faint sound of TV dialog in the background coming through my speakers. I probably should have kept it, since I sold it for very little money.

    In the US, E1000ESD did not come with gold connectors, but the E2000ESD did.

    At 10 hz which is an entire octave lower than 20 hz the waveforms are over 100 feet in length and you're right they do carry!
