  • Summary: Product came on time as advertised. Features are great. Compared to my last receiver this one is a little more complicated to set up and adjust but the sound is very good.

It does almost everything - happy with it overall

A. Dent "Aragorn", Amazon
7 October 2009
  • Summary: I would not call myself a super-sophisticated audiophile but we do listen to music, play games, watch HD TV and Blu-ray movies and, occasionally, we listen to the radio. Our new acquisition - this Sony STRDG820 - we credit with enhancing all of the above and it does it (with some help - see below)...

Good Product

C. Dirks, Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: It's a good product but difficult to set up if you don't deal with this type of product all the time. The manual is difficult due to bouncing around from page to page to get area completed.

Great Buy!

Ronald S. Brown, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: Receiver offers great features. Excellent sound and easy to use. The only problem I had was with the accessory to set the sound correctly for the room. I could never get it to work. Otherwise, it is a great buy for the money.

Snoy 820 receiver

R. D. Miller, Amazon
29 January 2009
  • Summary: I have had this receiver for about 1 month. This receiver is everything I expected. Out of the Box I had it setup and running within a 1/2 hour. Using HDMI cable from my units to the receiver and one HDMI to my TV is great. Everything is 1080 out from the TV.

But can you connect a turntable?

Paul Magnussen, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: For the benefit of other greybeards like myself who may still want to be able to play their old vinyl, I should like to add that of the STR-DG520, STR-DG720, STR-DG820 and STR-DG920, only the last-named has a phono input!

Great value, even after expensive shipping cost

H. C. L. Brian, Amazon
27 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this item at an amazingly low price of $250, free delivery. However, as I will use this item in the Far East, I paid an extra $100 for shipping. This, however, is still of great value as the same item is selling in Hong Kong for around $500 (list price $600).

Excellent Receiver for the price, but instructions are REALLY bad.

K. Anderson, Amazon
12 October 2008
  • Summary: I am a big fan of Sony. They do make a quality product. This receiver is no exception. PROS: It is an great receiver for the price. It is solid, and the front panel is uncluttered. There are several HDMI inputs (4), composite inputs and plenty of audio inputs too.

STRDG820 Review

Leslie R. Dearman, Amazon
12 October 2008
  • Summary: I just hooked this system up, and for the money it is a great system. Using the HDMI ports are awesome being that you do not have massive amounts of cables running everywhere. The speakers sound very clear, and I was actually listening to NFL games in surround sound.
