Its ok.

Albert E. Torres, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this unit for 5 or 6 years and use it daily for movies and gaming. Its been reliable and sounds great for movies but seems a bit flat when listening to music from either PC/MP3, CD player or playing from Blu-Ray player, just seems a bit flat and dull compared to other receivers I have heard. But for what I paid for it, it works great. I use a Sony Blu-Ray player and send the DTS-HD/Dolby-TruHD through PCM and sounds good.

Sony STR DG710 6.1 channel 630 Watt 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.

All good but one very bad thing. No 5.1 PCM!!!

  • Summary: While Sony touts this as a 5.1 or 6.1 system with 24/96 LPCM, this not true, it auto converts all PCM signals to 2.1 stereo! Why? I have no idea, but my HD DVD player only outputs HDMI in PCM sound! I got this for the HDMI audio inputs! I knew 24/96 was the limit, but there's next to nothing out there in 24/196 so I figured, who cares? But you have to have your audio output set to bitstream to get 5.1!

OK receiver

Z. Zhang "Crazy Z", Amazon

  • Summary: Overall it is good receiver with OK performance. Reason not liking or loving it is there are functions that are not available from the ads. Does not video up converting from video in to components out (I know it does not do component to HDMI, but from the ads, it says video up converting, meaning to components) Does not decode Dolby EX and DTS-EX on my LoR DVD.
