First AV receivers with built-in home automation

Control4 and Sony have recently introduced the first AV receivers incorporating the Control4 automation features.

This is a step in the right direction from AV manufacturers partnering with home automation manufacturers to make every home users experience more simplified.  With technology playing an integral part in our everyday lives it must be simplified for the user to appreciate the real benefit.

The team at 4ward-design don’t specify the Sony AV range in South Africa because the after-sales support is not fantastic.  Sony outsource all their repairs to a 3rd party repair center, and those guys don’t care about the end user at the end of the day. Sony repairs have taken up to 6 months to come back to us, and that is unacceptable for the high quality service that we deliver to all our customers.

Besides the bad experience from Sony in South Africa it is still worth informing our customers that the new Sony ES receivers feature stunning 4K audio video quality, a rich selection of more than 30 streaming music and video services, and basic Control4 automation technology that easily adds lighting control to enhance the entertainment experience. Both receivers allow you to easily unleash the power of full Control4 automation and home control capability.

These are the two new AV receivers from Sony

Sony 5800

Designed for the high-end home theatre, the STR-5800ES is the Sony flagship 9.2-channel receiver with 130 watts per channel and 9/3 HDMI ports.

Sony 2800

The STR-2800ES is a 7.2-channel receiver with 100 watts per channel and 8/3 HDMI ports that gives consumers a universal remote alternative that provides an amazing AV experience.
