Received on time and works as expected.

  • Summary: I needed a replacement for my STR-DH800, since it is no longer in production I had no choice and purchased a used one because I needed the S-Air capability for my existing speakers. The new Sony receivers don't support that stuff anymore This works, I hope it lasts.

Died just outside of warranty

Jay D., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • Pros: Does everything I expected it to do and was straight forward to install and set up
  • Cons: Started emitting a terrible sound and shutting off automatically. Took it to a certified repair shop identified by Sony and they said the Main board needed to be replaced which would cost more than a new unit with comparable capabilities. Basically it was DOA. Pretty disappointing as I've always ...

  • Summary: I purchased a 55" Samsung Series 8 LED and decided I need to upgrade my receiver from 5.1 to 7.1 and purchased this Sony SDR-DH800. I choose this receiver based on specifications that met my needs and the price was right.

An amazing full-featured receiver for the money

  • Summary: This unit was a replacement for an older Sony receiver and I'm very happy with it so far. Though I haven't used all the new features in this model yet, I'm impressed with the overall feature capabilities, and at such a low price.

What'd you'd expect, with a small bonus

Andrew Willing, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: The receiver is about what you'd expect for the listed specifications. I run at 5.1 instead of 7.1, so I can't provide comment on that. The auto-calibrate feature for the speakers is easy to do and greatly improves the quality of the experience.

  • Summary: I thought that I needed new speakers to get better sound from my Blu Rays, but as sone as I plugged the HDMI from the Blu Ray to this receiver the sound was amazing. Even my wife could tell a difference and that is saying something!
