New Life 4/5
After 4 years of neglect Sony decided to simply make this app compatible with IOS 11. Suddenly used prices for ES 2800/5800 more than doubled on eBay. Now if Sony would just add IP control for its TV’s and VCR’s, this app’s usage would explode and prices for ES 2800/5800 would double again. Please Sony-invest in this app.
Version 2.2.0 Support iOS 11 5/5
I didn’t think this app would be updated to be compatible with 64-bit iOS 11, but it did. Has been great with my STR-DA5800ES so far.
Oh no... 1/5
By my last try at a nickname
Your original app for STR-DA3600ES does not work, and this one does not support it. What gives Sony? Please include support in this app and update for iOS10 & 11
Bye bye Sony - never again! 1/5
I loved having this app but the Power Control function stopped working with iOS 10. Please fix it!!!
Update: Doesn’t work with iOS11 at all.
Sony is SO disappointing anymore. This app was for their high-end ES line and they just don’t care. They sell you and move on, no support. I used to love Sony products but no longer. I’m done with them due to their lack of support. Bye bye Sony!
NEEDS iOS 11 UPDATE ASAP! 1/5
By ry guy
Please update for iOS 11 support.
No iOS 11 support??? 1/5
So I paid $3600 for a receiver that you can't even update the app for? Give me a break!!!!!
Please Update!!! 4/5
Hey Sony, This App works great but it needs to be updated right away...
No updates to fix IOS update issues 2/5
This app was really awesome for controlling my receiver until I updated the IOS on my iPhone. Sony has not provided any updates to fix the issue that started after the IOS update, and has been quiet about this very issue that users have been very vocal about. All features but the power control still work, but I need the power control. Come on Sony! Step it up with an app update to fix this!
NO SUPPORT FOR 64 bit 5/5
5 Star rating for app functionality. However, I hope everyone is aware that soon this app will no longer work with your iOS devices. This app is 32bit and will not function when Apple upgrades their app structure for 64bit apps only, most likely coming with iOS 11 this fall. In my case I will be up the creek as I rely on the app to control my 5800 receiver as the receiver is located outside of my room. If you enjoy the functionality of the app I suggest you contact Sony and let them know as they where unaware when I spoke with them. Be warned the only way to contact ES support is by phone. Consumer hotline number is 877-619-7669. The staff is helpful and considerate, but needs to know we need an update.
Latest IOS 10.2 fixed power control issue! 4/5
By GBbbbbbb bbb
Woohoo, my app is back. Love this app, I have a 5700 and 5800, this app allows me to turn on my outside zone, and a 3rd zone that connects the two receivers, turn off the music, change volume, etc. from anywhere in my house. This app is soooo useful!!!
NEEDS UPDATE 1/5
Sony where is your support for updating this app, get it together, otherwise everything will be Samsung soon.
Was great till IOS10 1/5
App was terrific and used daily till IOS 10 which broke the power control. Sony please fix this as the app does not function properly without it
Broken with iOS10 1/5
Sony has not updated this app since 2013. Has mot been an issue until now - with the release of iOS10. For some reason, the Power Control screen no longer works. Major issue! Please provide a fix!
Please add support for STR-DN1040 3/5
Please add support for STR-DN1040
Works Very Good
Just what I needed 5/5
This app is exactly what I needed. Between this app and my tango app I have complete music control in zone 2 from my pool with just my iPod.
App doesn't work 1/5
By kgj cat
App just doesn't work on modern routers
It's a good app.. You can control your receiver with some ease.. It's fun being able to control other devices with the best phone ever created i.e. iPhone ...
Works Great! 5/5
This app, along with the iTunes Remote, works fantastic on my iPhone 5. Hasn't been a problem yet and I've been using it for a few months on my Sony DA5700ES. There are some features of the amp that it does not control, but it does everything it is said to do by the developers.
Please add support for STR-DA6400ES
HUGE PROBLEM 1/5
By Taylor Matson
Needs to be updated to work with STR-DN1040 since it doesn't register remotes, and it needs to fit the iPhone 5 screen!
STR-DA 5800ES 4/5
By Robert Shields
This app works well with my home network and str-da 5800es. I'm guessing the previous reviewer didn't have it connected properly or has some strange network configuration.
Problems connecting 1/5
Da5800 problems connecting.
Receiver is connected.
iPhone is connected
App won't connect
Da 5800 won't show on screen display properly through Hdmi only through component
Go to Internet music from I phone app when it worked it is different than when you go by remote ... No pandora with es app
About to return for the denon
This app is excellent for controlling the proper Sony receiver. My STR-DA5700ES is a great receiver with a bit of a slow interface when it comes to settings. This app takes care of all that. Changes are practically instantaneous. This app genuinely makes a good receiver more useable. Also, you can change soundfields on the fly with no on-screen menu. The handheld remote almost let's you do that, but not nearly as convenient. Last thing, some networks are finicky when it comes to using these controller apps. Some people have routers behind routers and other issues. Make sure you troubleshoot before you decide it doesn't work with your receiver. I had to turn off NAT on my router a while ago due to these issues. That said, this app saw my receiver right away. Make sure you tap on the receiver name, not the extra settings.
It doesn't work 1/5
This info says that the app will work with "all Sony AV receivers released in 2011". I just purchased a DN1030. It will not work with this high-end receiver.
I suggest that Sony try to be more helpful towards its customers. I have been a loyal Sony customer for 20 or more years but support has really gone downhill.
Please add support STR-DA 3600ES EU version 1/5
Please add support STR-DA 3600ES EU version.
Why are the EU customers left out? Also the previous Sony APP did not support EU versions.
Does NOT work with STR DA5600ES! 1/5
By Sunrider 77
This does not work with the STR DA5600ES. Even if it recognizes the receiver, it prompts you to download the Sony AV Remote app to use instead .
The App does work on the STR-DA3600ES 5/5
By Archangel 70
The list of compatible receivers is not complete. This app is compatible with the 3600, 4600 and the 5600 as well.
Changes App to a non working App 1/5
If the app is designed to change to the older AV Remote app to suit the receiver I purchased then fix the AV Remote App so it works or allow STR-DA5600ES to use this app. Why is the Sony solution make a new App for our brand new AV receiver and just forget about all the people and product we gained last year? Disgraceful sales etiquette Sony.
Doesn't work with DA3600ES 1/5
Why can't sone make an app that works with more receivers. I spent good money on the DA3600ES and no app support....
Why does Sony not hear us??? 1/5
Could You please update Your apps so they will work with all Sony AV Network receivers- US and Europe?
That really can´t be so difficult for You, You already have those apps so please add other/ older models as well, please!!
Update AV Receiver Remote app first 1/5
Please update the "AV Receiver Remote" app to support DA3600ES european version, please!
