left channel wasn't working...

RickDVD "RickDVD", Amazon

  • Summary: It's a good machine and it did what I wanted it to do. Also, it's a bit dated, but I was looking for that type of hookup for the component audio. However, the left channel wasn't working.

The louder the better, but limited in equalizing and balance control.

  • Summary: The Sony STR598 6.1 works well enough but very limited in the equalizer control. Given the choice today I'd go with something that had more user control. It's fairly easy to set up for anyone who's familiar with audio equip.

  • Summary: The STR-DE598 FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver comes equipped with 6 channels supplying 90 Watts per channel If you have a newer home audio system you may want to look for a receiver that has HDMI inputs, this system dosnt have them. But I still enjoy this system.

Just replaced this with an Onkyo

Ken L. Norton "Shoeshine Boy", Amazon
15 May 2008
  • Summary: This reciever was fine for a while but then I lost the dolby processing, the center channel started dropping out, and I only got full surround sound through the coaxial input. I like Sony, but sound doesn't seem to be something that they do well at.

Bargain Buy

Bob-bo, Amazon
14 August 2007
  • Summary: Buying from Amazon was cheapest price especially with free shipping. Stepped up for more power per channel. Stayed in the Sony family. (Previous Sony surround, output to center speaker quit) Dislike the speaker hook ups in back, difficult to attach speaker wires and screw down connections.

  • Summary: You can't beat the price on this for the options you can create with it. It was a bit confusing at first for me as I'm not terribly experienced with things like this. The manual helped somewhat.
