    Sony TA-DA7000ES on Sale in November; World’s First HDMI Switching Amplifier





    While video gear with HDMI inputs is being released at a torrid pace, the opposite is true for A/V receivers. But on November 21, Sony will launch its first HDMI-switching amplifier, the 9.1 channel Sony TA-DA7000ES (US$2100), a much more palatable version of its top-of-the-line STR-DA9000ES, both size and price-wise.



    Sony TA-DA7000ES
    Sony’s TA-DA7000ES has one HDMI, component input and two outputs






    Likely to be repackaged as the STR-DA7000ES receiver for North American and European markets, the TA-DA7000ES features seven channels rated at 120 watts, with a THD of 0.15%, below that of the STR-DA5000ES and STR-DA9000ES models. Together with the Samsung AV-R3000, which is due in the U.S. in February 2005, let’s hope this opens the HDMI-switching floodgates.

    Let's hope that the STR DA 7000ES makes its way to our shores soon.

    tbone7467,

    Thanks for the news. Interesting that at the top of the article they list the TA-DA7000ES as a 9.1 channel receiver and at the bottom of the article they list the TA-DA7000ES with seven channels rated at 120 watts. Am I missing something?

    Joe

    Yes, I also found that interesting. It looks like you may be able to activate the A + B speakers at the same time as all the others, adding the two extra speakers to 9.1. But I can't be positive as I don't read Japanese. But just the thought of a STR-DA7000ES being released here, gives me goosebumps. That could possibly be a good receiver upgrade for my STR-DA7ES, someday.....

    Thanks Toli, activating the A+B speakers might be the explanation of the 9.1 system.

    I think that the addition of the front B channel speakers is the key. On the STR DA 9000ES it has a total of 11 channels if you include the 2 pairs of front A and B channels, center channel, 2 pairs of rear channels as well as 2 pairs of surround channels and yet it is listed as a 9.1 channel Receiver.

    np on the article I found it on a site that I think was www.16nine.com. I was looking to see if Sony had any plans to release a HMDI dvd changer. I never noticed the 2 diffrent surround sound specs.

    here I found this also:
