Sony STR-DG710: A very good product

D E N "D-man", Amazon
8 March 2008
  • Summary: Although I have not used it to it's full capacity (6.1 setup), I am very happy with the product. It's many features allow an almost customized listening experience. Currently I am using just a pair of Bose 301(series I) and a new Yamaha subwoofer but, the sound is very, very good.

One more output

  • Summary: Excellent product for the money. The HDMI is nice, but a simple s-video output would be a win. Anyway, easy to set-up, pretty easy menus and it arrived ahead of schedule.

Sony STR-DG710 is Quite Good but with Challenges

Daniel Lindley "If you can't say something nice...", Amazon
4 January 2008
  • Summary: To me and my ears, it sounds great! I don't get concerned about numbers and specs. I'm only concerned about how it sounds to my ears. The remote is "cheapo" and light weight. The remote lacks the functions of being able to change the volume and/or balance of each channel FROM the remote.

This receiver is up to my expectations.

  • Summary: After I hooked it up to my 12" Infinity sub and surround speakers, the sound is excellent. I was able to get sound and video from my HD DVD player but I could not get sound from my CD player via HDMI.I had to use the super audio rca connections. I wish it would have more music choices(equalizer).

Worked great for 5 days!

  • Summary: I have alot of Sony products and have had great success with them all till now. I tied the Sony STR-DG710 into my system that consists of a Sony 52 inch Bravia and a Sony Bluray disc player. I used all HDMI cables to tie them all in including my cable HD box. Everything went fine for about 5 days.

Four Stars - For this price you know what to expect!

Mike Shea "The Goob", Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I'm not going to get into many technical details. Not because I can't but because at this price range you KNOW what you are getting. With that said this unit has performed very well. Most of us will never run this at the high end of the volume spectrum, so distortion isn't an issue.

Good receiver. No S-Video inputs or outputs, though.

Pat Gomes, Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: I've been playing with my STR-DG710 for two days, and this is my early review. The sound quality is good (only 1% Total Harmonic Distortion or "THD") in stereo, but gets ridiculous (10% THD!) when listening in surround sound.

  • Summary: As I have never wrote a review before; my problem was PS3, Xbox 360 and PC all having different sound systems, So go this - after about 1 hour of wiring (due to me not the equipment) was all setup. Default settings and I had output.
