Summary: I've own my STR-DE945 for well over 10 years. Lots of optional gear that I loved. 110 watts per channel Dolby Digital making every watt count. This unit has definitively help piss off alot of neighbors over the years.
Summary: This receiver is everything I was looking for. 5.1 surround is just fine with me. I didn't want/need the HDMI inputs, it has gobs of optical inputs, which works just fine and allows me to have the setup be "parallel" to the TV audio so that when the wife or I want to watch basic TV, we don't have to...
Summary: I've had a STR-DE945 since 9/2000. Sadly, my old unit was damaged in a move. The one I bidded on is just as excelent as my old unit. I got the 2009 updated cousin to the STR-DE945 and it didn't come close to the STR-DE945.
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.
