Good receiver, works well with basic features

waluttrell, Ebay

  • Summary: Pretty basic but does everything I need it to do! Looks great, although I wish the display was a little better, meaning the LCD on the receiver itself. Something that could display more information at once would be nice. Mine was a refurb and I couldn't tell at all; looks brand new!

good sound for the money

  • Summary: Pros: good sound, good price.Cons: US model does not have auto calibration and calibrating the speakers individually is complicated. Chat customer service is the worst I have ever seen from any company. Telephone customer service was efficient and able to help me get set up.Opinion: The STR-DH 520 is a good A/V receiver for the average Joan/John Doe who does not want to spend a lot of money, yet wants good surround sound.
  • Pros: good sound
  • Cons: US model does not have auto calibration

good value for the price.

  • Summary: I've been using this Sony receiver for a few months now and it's been pretty good. I'm happy with it, nothing comparing it with a high end receiver, but for the price it's doing the job.

Affordable HD sound, Great overall package...what more could you want?

  • Summary: First of all, I would like to say I am very happy with this receiver. The 100w/channel, the surround effects, the 4 HDMI ports with HDMI pass-thru, it being 3D ready, and it works with my Sony Bravia T.V.; all those things attracted me towards this product. I even went into the store so I could pick it up and feel it...didn't want to get a cheap light P.O.S. disguised as a nice receiver.

Sony STR-DH520 7.1 3D AV receiver - now believed to have been discontiued by Sony but may still be available

toni2has, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Took quite a time to set up the Sony STR-DH520 7.1 3D AV receiver following re-reading of on-line instructions from the Sony website and from information booklet supplied. I succeeded in connecting and using my existing wall mounted speakers from my former Sony DAV-DZ230/DZ231 DVD Home Theatre System with very good results. Please note Sony do not recommend use of these speakers.

Good product

  • Summary: No criticsm of supplier & delivery was very good to within 10 minutes of stated time. The product itself is good & "does what it says on the tin". However if you are looking for the best quality Hi Fi this is not it but leaves scope for experimentation to achieve good quality sound.

User Review

  • Pros: качество звука высокое, много HDMI входов, недорогой, приличная мощность на свои деньги
  • Cons: очень неудобный пульт! работал на большой громкости, по началу полностью справлялся (дополнительно я даже поставил сверху охлаждение от процесора ПК) , но через пол года начала срабатывать защита и выключала устройство, после чего я поставил ограничение на максимальный уровень громкости, но через 10 месяцев после покупки усилитель сгорел. Благо еще на гарантии, пока только отнес в ремонт, за все время защита сработала не более 5 раз.
