Summary: I bought this unit to enjoy Dolby digital sound from my DVD player,had a Pro-logic set up prior. For the first 8 or 9 months I was not too happy mainly due to the remote. Not very user friendly esp. if your gear isnt mostly Sony. Dim remote display, necessity to scroll too much etc.
Summary: I performed some work for a local pawn shop and as is our usual arrangement I was offered either mechandise or cash for the work. The shop had a Sony STR-DE945 on the shelf listed for $150. I chose that.
Summary: I purchased this receiver as a replacement for my JVC RX-8000V for a couple reasons: all of my other current equipment was Sony, and I was looking at this receiver when I purchased the JVC. Also, I have never had a single problem with Sony's brand of home A/V equipment.
Summary: I purchased this receiver after my old 915 finally crapped out. As expected the rear speakers went for no reason at all. Anyway, I've been using the new 945 for a few months now and so far I have little to complain about!
Summary: I looked for several months before i decided to get this unit. This is definately the way to go if your are looking into upgrading from prologic to dolby digital. It tends to get hot sometimes, but nothing you cant fix by adding a small fan in the back of it.
