jason a Casual Listener, Audio Review
8 November 2014
  • Summary: when the 7.1came out me being on a budget for 220 dollars that can hook up seven channels my only negative is what you see is what you get there is no calibration you hook up seven speakers and a sub go to the menu on the receiver adjust levels to your liking and that's it the good thing is the HDMI switching and sound quality is good up to a volume of about 35 which is a little less than half of the 75 full volume before you hear increased distortion but up until that...

good budget receiver

  • Summary: Quite a good receiver for the price. Only thing is that this receiver is defaulted to use with other Sony devices so confusing to reset to work with other brand devicers especially as the instruction book is not too specific.

Best users are young people; not for us old timers!

  • Summary: Bought the DH520 because my old Sony surround system would not handle all my inputs. (DVD Player, TV sound bar, CD player, Direct TV and wireless earphones) Turns out I had to buy a Blu Ray player because the DH520 could not handle many items with RCA connectors. So far the DH 520 SEEMS OK but it keeps shutting for for some unknown reason on its' own. Possibly have something not programmed correctly but not sure at this point.

Not recomended for novices.

  • Summary: I bought the refurbished model and it came like brand new. After I had it all working with my Bose speakers, I realized why this product was returned. Thee instructions for fine tuning are not very friendly. Since this is my 4th system receiver, I had enough knowledge to get thru the instructions. The unit is very powerful and has great sound. I really like the 4 hdmi inputs, makes for easy setup. This was a great price for me for this unit.

Two Amps in one cheap box

3D71 "3D71", Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: This is a basic HDMI switcher and 7 channel audio amp, with line output for a .1 sub woofer, with a stereo receiver in the same box. The two parts work and are cheap at the price; even if the rated audio output greatly exceeds the nominal power in, it's powerful enough for most HiFi speakers and living rooms and doesn't run as hot as the market leading and much pricier Onkyos.

  • Excerpt: взял этот рес по глупости. очень понравился дизайн и заявленный функционал при такой цене. но радость от покупки ушла сразу как только запустил первый двд... звук непорадовал совсем! а с музыкой все еще хуже было... Тем кто присматривается к покупке данного реса все же советую немного добавить и смотреть в сторону чуть более дорогих конкурентов.
  • Pros: чувствуется опыт сони! очень пользовательский рес -все очень легко настраиваемо. удобный пульт. приятный дизайн
  • Cons: звук не понравился совершенно!даже в кино музыку то и вовсе включать не приятно - знакомые песни просто слух режут. импеданс только 8 ом

Schlechter Stereoklang!

  • Summary: Ich brauchte einen billigen AVR für mein Schlafzimmer als Ersatz für meinen 20 Jahre alten AVR DD Receiver von Philips, der leider die neuen HD Formate nicht abspielt. Rein aus Neugierde habe ich ihn kurz in meinem Wohnzimmer angeschlossen und gegen den Philips und Onkyo 1009 antreten lassen (LS Teufel Theater 8 7.1). Nun bei Filmen war der Sony völlig ok bei dem P/L-Verhältnis und ich bekam ein Grinsen ins Gesicht...

Tolle Technik, aber Netzbrummen

Burgherr, Amazon
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Was die Anschlussmöglichkeiten, den Klang sowie das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis angeht ein super Gerät. War begeistert und hätte den vielen sehr positiven Bewertungen gerne zugestimmt. Aber leider gab zumindest das Gerät, welches ich bekommen habe-Lieferung wie immer bei Amazon sehr schnell- ein deutliches 50 Hz-Brummen aus dem Gerät selber ab, wohlgemerkt, nicht aus den Lautsprechern. Bei minimaler Lautsärke bzw.
