Excerpt: In 2010, Sony ’s home cinema amps blew occasionally hot, but mainly cold. A mixture of three and four-star reviews for its mid- and up-market offerings was offset by the performance of the entry-level STR-DH810 . This Award-winner proved to be the company’s amp saviour; so it is that we’re fascinated to see what the DH810’s successor, the STR-DH820, has in store.
Pros: Great value, exciting sound, powerful, tight bass, accurate steering of effects
Cons: No network functionality means no music streaming services
