Summary: The product didn't have HDMI output working out of the box. I took it to a local authorized repair place and they fixed it in a couple days at no charge. SONY wanted me to pay to send it to Texas, but the local place is only a few miles away. They said it was a damaged IC.
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: 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.
Great receiver. No Sound when using a HDMI to DVI adapter for older Sony Wega TV

Summary: Receiver is great. Wonderful quality sound and the night mode is wonderful. Very impressed. I have one quark with the set-up. Apparently, when connecting my older TV, which came with a HDMI to DVI conversion adapter, all HDMI Sound stops getting proceessed via the reciever. Unplug the TV..
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: 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.
Summary: After doing the research, I finally decided to but the STR-DG920. It had all the features that I wanted and the price was much less than many other receivers. Setup was easy, but if you are using bare speaker wire, the slots on the binding post are all facing the same way, and it can take a little...
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace my old Sony STR-K502, which was part of a dvd home theater system, and recently was having problems with the center channel speaker output. I did some research between the STRDG820 and 920 and found that the 920 allows output of all connections through the HDMI...
Summary: It works great in most aspects. I'll list my few quibbles first: - No way to put the unit in "standby" mode without using the remote. The power button on front turns the unit entirely off, unable to turn back on via the remote. - No way to disable unused inputs.
