Summary: One thing is,the unit was very clean and looks really good. Having 2 inputs for powered subs was fairly amazing to listen too. I have a set of Dennon 5.1 speakers and 2 subs running through it. The sound was like a wall. I have had a Kenwood receiver I have owned since 1995 and it just blows it away. I paid 60.00 for this unit used and it looks brand new. I recommend it.
Summary: The Sony STR DE875 5.1 channel 500 Watt Receiver is a great system for any home. Unlike many other sound systems that only support audio, this system is excellent because it supports video inputs and will output only one. This is very nice because I can control everything from the receiver's remote control. I can change from my cable/satelite to dvd or vhs to tape or cd and I dont have to touch the tv remote.
Great power and lots of settings to please everyone.

Summary: Plenty of optical inputs, lots of power and great audio quality make this Sony a definate winner! Incredible and sophistacated advanced settings lets you tweak the audio to fulfill any room environment. After having a 300W Aiwa system, I upgraded to Denon speakers and this Sony STR DE875 5.1 channel 500 Watt Receiver and believe you me: what a difference!
Summary: What I love about music and movies is that it brings me to a different world and this Sony STR DE875 5.1 receiver delivers every sound and beat that everyone would expect. It has more than enough digital inputs and also it's not as heavy as the normal receivers. I purchased mine for about 100 bucks and that was from Ebay so you know I'm loving this purchase. The Manual maybe more difficult to learn, but I guess being a great machine, it requires more literature.
Summary: I find that the Sony STR DE875 5.1 Receiver was way ahead of its time. I haven't found any poor ratings the I can give to this product. I hooked mine up to a Polk 250 Sub, 4 Polk 6800 series Sattilites and a Polk Audio CSi3 Center. And let me tell ya, for home theater, or just kick butt stereo sound, this receiver can handle it all........
Summary: Okay, I've had this little "gem" for 2 years now, and I've yet to program it properly. I can't seem to get the speakers to an optimum level at any time. It is far too complex, and the remoted does not control the cd player.
Summary: (STR-DE885) I have bought many Sony products before, with one of the benefits being able to control them all with one remote. So it was a surprise to me when none of the Sony remotes could control this unit. If it does not make it easier, it goes back.
Summary: Il prodotto è stato abbinato a: - un Sony S.A.W. (Super Acoustically Loaded Woofer) - 5 casse acustiche Sony per formare un sistema "home theatre". Anzitutto per capire tutte le funzioni dell'amplificatore, nonché il posizionamento migliore delle casse, sarebbero necessari tre mesi di intenso studio del manuale di istruzioni. Inoltre, sarebbe consigliabile chiamare un tecnico del suono, perché nonostante i disegnini, qualcosa ancora non mi convince circa la resa.
