Summary: After getting it all hooked up with the correct wires, this system puts out great sound and is very awesome to listen to Metal Mania on because of the classic 80's metal that my son and I love so very much!
Summary: I bought this because the price was right. I owned it 5 years and never figured out how this remote is supposed to work nor could I use the goofy adjustments. Had a sub-woofer hooked up and it never made a sound. It is about as good as an Emerson stereo or one of those old Electrophonics.

Summary: I like this receiver - it works well enough for me. The sound is clean and powerful. However; it is not without its quirks. Like one other reviewer mentioned, for digital DVD audio you do not get "optical audio in" for DVD inputs, but only coaxial.
Summary: Receiver has been a work horse for me, love how it has the Component Video pass through. Other receivers I've owned have not stacked up to this one. Overall, I'd recommend this Sony receiver for almost any household audio video set up
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.
