Do NOT BUY this unit it has a fundamental FATAL flaw

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Every few months, or almost every time you move the unit it will come in with Zone 2 selected. You CANNOT unselect it. Using the instructions in the manual RARELY works (sometimes you're lucky). If they don't then you have to try plan B. Here is plan B, please note, I am NOT making this up.

Caveat Emptor

citizen1951, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: I think you should think long and hard about buying this receiver. Not only did I have problems with this product, SONY service is absolutely horrible. After six months the receiver was not sending a video signal to my TV. Why? No one knows.

Warehouse product "Used - Like New"

Staffman, Amazon
4 August 2012
  • Summary: Took a chance on Amazon's Warehouse deals with this Sony STRDH820 7.2 channel receiver. It was described used - like new and about half the cost. Everything was still in its original packaging and looked like it was never touched.

Bad for a Computer's Audio

J. Turbyfill "Is_God_The_Devil_In_Exile", Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Sony STR-DH820 receiver to enjoy the 7.1 audio from my computer, but this receiver appears to have never been tested for use with a computer - and has intolerable issues. SUMMARY: Don't buy this if you are shopping for a receiver for your computer's speakers!

Repair shop happy

Milton Matt, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this unit for six months and it is headed back to the shop for the second time. The HDMI switching is very poor. Every time I change the channel I lose the sound and have to toggle the source to get it back. What a pain!

  • Summary: Update: Iphone/ipod dock is capable of playing music and video, but I was disappointed that you can't look at your photos via your iphone. Bummer. If anyone has a solution, except for dowloading to computer, and using USB, let me know.

Sony STRDH820

broadwjr "Ron", Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: First, I'm not new to Sony receivers - this is my 4th. Bought this one for increased HDMI input/output. The others continue to perform flawlessly. Not so with this one. Setup was straight forward - fortunately because as others have noted, the manual was of little help.
