Used broken receiver parts fixed my broken receiver.
3 September 2012
Summary: I purchased the used not working sony receiver to repair my broken STR DE835. I used the main board from the used receiver and added my front panel & digital board to it and I have working receiver now. The vendors comments were correct that the broken receiver power up and based that comment to purchase it to fix mine.
Summary: I love this receiver, great sound quality and extremely solid construction so it doen't look and feel cheap like a lot of newer receivers. Should last many many years and provide great sound output!
Summary: Down to the cut and chase. This is a great Reciever. I am constantly looking, reviewing and comparing electronic equipment and would say that I have a good knowledge of the market. I give this product a Five Star rating because of the features it carries at the price it gives. If you want a Reciever that can do multiple S-video, digital, analog inputs/outputs for each component,(such as a DSS satalite,VCR,DVD,CD,MD,LD,Ect.)this may not be the Reciever for you.
Summary: Recently purchased this receiver. I am now able to hook everything up to it, without switchboxes like before. The difference from Pro Logic to Digital is astounding. This receiver is great...worth every penny.
