    Toli,

    I found that out when I was looking at sets. had my eye on a 50-60 sony that would have been sweet. then I hit the research stage of the purchase and found that out and became very disappointed. I figured i could not afford a TV with 1080P for a while so I am not going to do the upgrade for some time. it is kinda killing me right now as I am going to college and am using a TV that still has the UHF dial on it. makes me cry when I see my 777es right next to it.

    I hope all the money that I am spending at Walla Walla college makes up for being poor for the next year and a half.

    tbone7467,

    In the end it will be, a good education will last you a lifetime.

    Are you still considering a receiver upgrade? I still feel that a receiver's switching capabilities aren't important and running all video to the TV is better. While it isn't as convenient, I think that it produces a better result.

    tbone7467- Someday 1080p will be as outdated as UHF is today, but your college degree will keep you in SOTA TV sets for the rest of your life!

    That's great to hear! I didn't know that the DA7100ES was 2 lbs heavier than the DA9000ES though.

    He was exagerating the weight!  The masses listed in the specs are as follows:

    STR-DA7100ES        23.5 kg (51 lb. 13 oz)
    STR-DA9000ES        28.5 kg (62 lb. 13 oz)

    Maybe that was the weight that the shipper gave, and it included the packaging.

    It sounds more like he's estimating the weight of his new Receiver rather than quoting a shipping receipt.

    Considering the almost 53 pounds that the DA7100ES weighs I'd say he made a very good estimate when he said "like 65 lbs or something...heavy! Heavy indeed!

    Enjoy your new Digital Receiver jocktheglide and let us know how much justice it does to the sound of your Music and Movies!
