Good choice for a beginners' high output home theater amplifier.
8 June 2012
Summary: This is a quality amplifier that can be had for cents-on-the-dollar. I've had mine since new in 1990, only recently in 2012 have i had any trouble with it, the center channel output has become intermittent. It is noteworthy that compaired to current offerings the DE-935 is a real boat anchor (i.e. heavy). It does not have HDMI I/O's. It does have a single optical input.
Summary: This is my 2nd STR-DE935 and i love my first one so much i had to buy it again. My first one was when i lived with my parents still with a full cerwin vega set up. I never came close to maxing this thing out and sounded amazing. The 2nd one is part of my onkyo HT-520 home theather i have it in a room 25x25 and it fills it to the brim with rich sound. There is so many inputs and out puts i could spend all day talking about them.
