Summary: My last receiver was a Sony and it lasted 9 years before it started to fail. I'd say that's pretty good by electronic standards so I decided to give them another shot. The setup would have been cake were it not for the limited space behind my entertainment center and I was too lazy to move...
Summary: Most of what you need to know about this AV receiver has already been discussed in the other reviews. The receiver has a very good set of features for the price point, which was the primary reason for our purchase.
Summary: This receiver is everything that I expected and much more. The only complaint I have, which that I read in other reviews before I purchased, the instructions are much to complicated. It should be put in laymens terms not the professional.
It looks like this one is now discountinued by Sony!

Summary: I ordered this when it was on back order with Amazon for $[...] and waited a few weeks to get it. The unit I received was making a "clicking" noise (that seemed to go away after about a week but I had already requested a replacement from Amazon).
Summary: I have been using this receiver for almost 2 months now and am really happy with it. Sound is great, auto calibration with mic is great. Menu system is convenient. I have 2 devices connected via HDMI and one via component video and optical audio.
Summary: Two things to consider how NOT to design an A/V receiver and what to expect with this otherwise excellent unit: 1) SONY should put back the spring-loaded speaker wire connectors. This unit has screw type connectors which are very inconvenient and frustrating.
Summary: I have been shopping for a receiver for quite some time, ordered Onkyo 606 but then canceled it due to back-order. Sony DG920 is the closest one compares to Onkyo 606 within my budget range. Hook up was fairly easy and I did not read the manual at all since everything is on screen UI mode.
Summary: This is a very capable product, however, the instruction manual is about a thousand pages too short. The audio technology field is crammed with standards and if you aren't familiar with them and what they do, the manual provided with the amplifier won't do you much good.
Summary: Very satisfied so far, but all the review sites I looked at before purchasing were right. The instruction manual is fairly vague, the remote should be lighted and programable for more than some sony equipment and the speaker auto calibration mike set the center channel too low to hear voices unless...
