A lot of bang for your buck.

  • Summary: Great Home Theater system. Sound is crisp and clear, only using 5.1 setup until I can get two more speakers. You definitely want to download and print a copy of the manual as this remote is not self explanatory.

Entry level surround with a lot of options

Clinton S., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Summary: Something to consider - surround sound requires space; I recommend anyone and everyone get some sort of AVR setup but not everyone has the room for surround or the ears to benefit (certain folks simply aren't capable of detecting directional sound), so take into account your space, budget, and...
  • Pros: The Sony STRDH520B has a lot going for it, HDMI pass-thru, 4 HDMI inputs, DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD pass-thru, ample power for small-medium sized rooms and plenty of level/placement adjustments giving you a ton of flexibility for placement, sound fields, you can even push audio from one i...
  • Cons: On the negative side, there is no automatic adjustment on the US model, meaning you must calibrate by ear. This could be a dealbreaker for some of you, personally I found the lack thereof easy enough to deal with thanks to the test tone that can be played on each speaker. It's not as precise as l...

You will not find anything better for the $.

jowek70, Ebay
17 April 2013
  • Summary: This receiver is lightyears ahead of the old RCA I replaced it with. It automatically adjusts everything based on what you have connected and how the interface travels - optical, HDMI, etc. It is a HUGE improvement and for the $ you cannot go wrong.
