Summary: Needed a good cheap good receiver and this seems to do the trick. Im overseas so far i've only received the receiver and one Pioneer SP-FS52-LR Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker. Even with just the one speaker it sounds great. The only thing I wish this receiver had was a aux input. I dont have a ipod and id like to play music from my S4, thats the reason for the 4 star rating.
The STR-DH540 did not accept my iPOD via USB connection

Summary: When I tried to connect my iPod, using the USB connection, it never completed "reading" the iPod. Hence, I had to connect the IPOD using RCA cables. Note, when the RCA cables were connected, the USB cable could be used to charge the iPod while playing. The audio features are OK.
Summary: Great bang for your buck. It does everything I need , and even has a second sub connection if I ever want to add another. Sound levels are more than enough for the average size room, and the sound is great.
Summary: After upgrading to digital I found that my old receiver didn't support the new components. I reviewed several receivers on Amazon and this one appeared to meet the need and voila! It works just great.
Summary: I am not that satisfied with this Receiver. For starters it doesn't have enough of and the right kind of inputs, but you couldn't see that on the description. It doesn't have a Optical output. I have a sound bar and wanted to just run all my players in to the receiver and then out to the sound bar. No can do.
Summary: We had surround sound for our livingroom, but with all the different remotes ,it got to be a touch much.Then the dvd player quit on us. So my son researched this product to see if it would meet our needs, YES IT DID. Now when the tv turns on this receiver turns on automatically. The surround sound speakers also come on.maybe our old setup was fine, this receiver just makes tv viewing so much simpler.
