ES Remote is an iPod touch/iPhone app that enables Sony AV receivers to be operated via the phone’s touch screen. It is compatible with the following models.
Just like with the graphic interface of AV receivers, ES Remote has cool graphics and is easy to use. It handles basic AV receiver operations (turning on and off the power, adjusting the volume, switching input sources, switching sound fields, etc.) as well as Zone functions. That way, you can easily operate the AV receiver from the screen of your iPod touch/iPhone, even in another room. The app is even equipped with a DMC (Digital Media Controller) function. Designing ES Remote in an advanced manner just for AV receivers enabled high sound quality playback of Internet service content and music files on your NAS or PC with ES Remote.
What's New in Version 2.1.0
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.
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.
Just what I needed
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.
