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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
