Sony receiver

Amazoner, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: Great product, I heard Sony is not what it used to be but this receiver has some crisp sound . And most important to me it has no audible distortion whatsoever, unlike Pyle receivers which I highly recommend to stay away from.

Almost two years later, I'd like to endorse this receiver

Stevie Hretz, Amazon
4 September 2010
  • Summary: I had a huge old JVC set at some point and decided to pare down over time, slowly discarding the CD changer as my music collection went all digital, etc. When it was time to find a new receiver, I found this one to be a simple straightforward design, a very attractive price point, and honestly, Sony still makes some quality products. I bought a pair of Sony floor speakers to go with it, and my new system was born. We use this receiver every single day.

stereo receiver

D. Hyatt "Doc", Amazon
25 June 2009
  • Summary: Did not work! I have to take it to a Sony certified dealer for repair. I Do Not, recomend this product! My choices are: Return for refund and reorder( 2 weeks at least turn around). Pay shipping to Sony Mfg`r in Texas for repair ( 2-3 weeks turn around). Take this to a Sony certified dealer here in Phoenix,AZ. (there are only 2!)leave it for repairs, and then go pick it up after ( how many days no one knows). All, at my expense! I am NOT, a happy camper.

Perhaps our unit was defective

Agatha Higginbottom "Aggie", Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: We returned this receiver. Once it was hooked up, we found that the volume control did not work well. The volume increased only a smidge even when it was turned up all the way. All we were looking for was a simple receiver that worked well, and this was not it. We were disappointed because we've found Sony products to be very reliable, usually.

The Tinman, Amazon

  • Summary: This product is excellent for anyone who needs a good quality low cost receiver. it has the basic features one neds in an entry level receiver and it does not pretend to be for audiophiles but it delivers good clean sound and is well worth the price.

Good Performer For The Price

Still Spinning Vinyl "It's not final for vinyl", Amazon
8 March 2009
  • Summary: This product may be nearing the end of its product cycle as it seems the price has come down considerably over the past year and may be replaced with a newer model. You must consider that this is an entry level or starter piece of equipment if you are looking for something of true audiophile quality. For the average listener and then some, the Sony STR-DE197 can be an especially good buy at these lowered prices seen at many retailers.
