Great product with superior price/performance ratio

  • Summary: I bought it because of its price. Used, with a slightly dented case, but it performance is superb and the hook up is a cinch. I use it in the kitchen and watch Youtube while cooking. I am fully aware of the pass-through nature of the receiver, but with multiples HDMI inputs on my TV already, who needs another one on the receiver?

  • Summary: The product was the lowest priced i found on the internet. i was a little apprehensive at first, but "the money back guarantee" was reassuring. The product arrived on time with a tracking number. Everything work just fine. Now my father in law is on top of the world!

Great product for the price!

  • Summary: I replaced on older Denon model with this receiver about 4 years ago. I decided then to that because I got a great deal on a used one. What a great trade-up that was. I then moved and decided to sell the old one, and purchased another used one about 4 months ago. I decided to purchase a another one because Sony's apparently has discontinued this model, and that's a shame. This is an excellent buy for what it is.

Good starter receiver

Hillisterboy, Amazon

  • Summary: As other reviewers said the HDMI's do not carry the audio. No issue for me, I used HDMI for video and optical for audio. For my first 5.1 setup this receiver is great. The sound is really good for the price. 500 watts more than fills the 15x20 viewing room. I have 3 way CerwinVega (12/4/2) in front / Mission bookshelf (6/6/2) in rear and Bose VCS-10 center. Setup was easy. Auto calibrate got me close. Still needs a little tweaking to get dialogue consistent.

Sony STR DG510 gets the job done

prr123chuck, Ebay
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I upgraded to this Sony receiver for better speaker connections. My Sony HDTV already had the HD inputs, so the receiver having an HD output was of little consequence to me. The STR-DG510 works well for the small room it is in. It is an affordable alternative to the more expensive receivers I looked at. Sadly, it is out of production, replaced by a new line of Sony receivers. I just wish Sony could have added another set of video inputs.

difficult to set up - but okay for the price

Scott, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this based on the Sony name but after doing so it reminded my why I don't normally buy Sony products. The set up is very confusing and the biggest con is you have to use a TOS link cable to get sound. I eventually found this out after searching on line. The volume is not earth shattering but that can actually be a good thing as there does not seem to be any distortion.
