Summary: The Sony STR DE698 B 7.1 Channel Receiver bought is awesome and is was on time. I love the Sony STR DE698 B 7.1 Channel Receiver if I did not own it and had not bought it from this vender no ebay my life would not have been complete. No im ready to go blasting tunes all the way to the big house.
Summary: This unit has everything you expect from a 100 x 7. I have this system hooked to 7 speakers in a 30 x 25 living room. The sound from this unit made my TV seem too small. Sound quality is excellent for the level unit this is. I have not had a chance to hook up a subwoofer yet, but I am sure it will be equally as room filling. PERFECT FOR A GOOD CHEAP 7.1 SURROUND UNIT!!!!
Summary: My old system died on me so I went surfing the web to see what I could find as a replacment unit. I read all of the on line reports I could find and then hit Ebay to see if they had the unit. They did and I got the Sony DE698 7.1 channels system for a great price. My first words on setup are, Read The Book First on how to set the system up, it will go a lot easer for you. Use or make up banana jacks for ease of installing the speakers.
