New Sony ES receivers

Sony has announced three new AV receivers under its "Elevated Standard" line, the STR-DA2400ES, 3400ES and 4400ES. All of them are capable of 1080/24p output, and decoding several audio codecs, including Dolby TrueHD, DTS High Resolution and DTS HD Master Audio. A built-in Faroudja DCDi Cinema chip upscales all video to 1080p when streamed via HDMI. The 4400ES is the top-end model, and has a 120W amplifier that services 7.1 channels. Six HDMI inputs are supplied, and streams can be directed to multiple zones simultaneously, including two video and three audio zones. It should ship in August for $1,500.

The 3400ES steps power down to 100W, and HDMI inputs down to four. Likewise, zone distribution includes only two video options, one of which must be composite. Finally, the 2400ES loses zone support entirely. The former will be out in August for $1,000, while the latter will arrive in July for $800.
