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 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: This receiver is perfect for my needs. That's why I gave it 5 stars. I purchased this unit after returning a STR-DG510 because I made a poor choice originally. That's not a knock on the 510 because for the money it's a great value. But the 710 with it's full HD 1080P compatibility, it's handling of the audio through the HDMI cable, the auxiliary AV inputs on the front panel, the power, and the quality sound gave me all reasons I needed to upgrade.
An outstanding bargain if you understand what you're buying

Summary: If you jumped on the HDTV bandwagon early and have the following problem, you'll appreciate this receiver. This review focuses almost solely on the video switching and audio input assignment capabilities. Sony is the king of video. However, they have never claimed their low-end stereo equipment to be market-leading. All of the goodies are usually reserved for their ES series.
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
Summary: Purchased the Sony STR-DG710 6.1 Home Theater Receiver to match with Sony 5.1 speaker system and Visio HDTV ...the sound is 'unreal'! So realistic that my dogs go wild thinking someone/thing is in or outside the house. The two (2) HDMI inputs and single HDMI output made the DVR and DVD installation so easy I was up and running in 15 minutes.
