The Sony STR-DA4600ES is one of three ES receivers (STR-DA3600ES, Sony STR-DA4600ES, Sony STR-DA5600ES) released in Q3, 2010. As an upgrade from the STR-DA3600ES, the Sony STR-DA4600ES offers the ability to distribute audio/video content to multiple rooms via the second HDMI output, and just video content to a second zone via a CAT5 output. Plus it can also up-scale all sources to 1080p in the main zone and 1080i in the second via an integrated Faroudja chip. Otherwise, it’s a 7.1-channel (120W) receiver with a four-port Ethernet switch, 3D pass-through, DLNA streaming, and iPhone/iPod Touch remote control. Also included is IP, RS-232 and IR control support for convenient automation integration.
