SONY DA-3500ES AVR:
Works PERFECT…..just tested it. (any white specs in pics are from cleaning cloth, NOT scratches)
The ES Sony models are their higher end line. They are significantly better, than the regular models !
This is a STEAL at this price… (RETAIL was $1000….when purchased)
EXTREMELY little use. Probably watched 3-4 movies on it MAX. It was in my secondary home theater rig, and the TV was utilized elsewhere, and this unit sat collecting dust for the last 3 years.
