Great when played with or without an equalizer. Couldn't be happier.

Summary: I don't know why some people are giving this great stereo poor reviews. Yeah, the instructions might seem confusing to some but everything I wanted the stereo to do I figured out how to make it do it pretty much on my own.
Summary: I've had the STR-DG600 receiver for more than a month, now, and it works great. The power is more than enough for my living room, and full volume is VERY loud on my Sony SA-FT1H flat panel speakers, and the sound is great. I especially like the Digital Cinema Sound for movies.
Summary: Lots of features, great sound, I really like the multiple optical and digital sound inputs for DVD, cable box, etc. The remote control is on the small side, and the feature menus are very in depth, which is a double edged sword.
Summary: I have always had luck with Sony. This receiver has enough input/output ports to include every stereo componant as well as the DVD, VCR and game console. Has several optional speaker combinations which work great for utilizing throughout the house.
Summary: I gave it five stars because I am rating on bang for the buck! If you are not a pro and are looking for value for your money, this is it. It has a very nice and crisp sound, I have a surround system and the moives sound great!Plus, Sony's reliability is something to consider in the long run.
Summary: I bought this two months ago because my "old" STR-DA80ES speaker output failed and it would've cost about $250 and three weeks to get it fixed. Although the STR-DG600 7.1 is much lighter and "feels" cheaper than the STR-DA80ES it was easier to set up, and it works better.
Summary: I had read a lot of reviews that said the manual was impossible to read. I had no problems setting the reciever up. Everything went smoothly and I am now enjoying 7.1 surround sound! This reciever is everything I was expecting and more. I think it was the best value for the money.
