Summary: The receiver looks very nice it delivers what is promised. Sounds great. There are three hdmi inputs and one output to the TV.The sound quality is very good. Good for a small room. It was a gift for my daughter's birthday. She is very happy with it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a starter system. If you have a larger room then you might consider a more powerful model. You get a good value for your dollar with this receiver.
Summary: I only thing that I like about it, that it works. There are some feature of this product that are not easy to get to. (Not as simple as pushing 1 button on the remote or on the Receiver.) That is only thing that I don't like about it. I bought it because of the price and I need a 6.1 receiver.
Summary: I use this to demo Klipsch speakers I sell. It is a super good tuner for the money. You really have to read the manual to take advantage of all the features. A little hard to navigate the menu and set up, but after you master that, this thing kicks!
Summary: If you've never used an A/V reciever be prepared for lots of reading and playing around. The Sony STR-DG710 is a fairly complicated component. I've had a few Audio/Video Recievers in my life and hands down this one was a little mystifying to set up. When you start monkeying around with the HDMI and the audio set ups for them they don't exactly greet you with a friendly smile.
Summary: This is a great basic reciever. Very easy to set up. We did has some problems with the with the HDMI Pass through which would not support a 1080 signal, but otherwise this ius a great reciever for the price
