decent lower end receiver

woodrow171, Amazon

  • Summary: i wanted to replace my 17 year old technics receiver with hdmi and digital connections...maybe i was expecting too much, but sound quality certainly is not a big upgrade...however i paid the same amount 17 years ago, so obviously this sony is more towards an entry level: my technics was high end at the time.....as far as bells and whistles and modern connections, this unit is fine...

Only one little hiccup..........

  • Summary: This receiver works exceptionally well for the money. But be aware that the zone 2 option does not transmit signals from devices connected via HDMI. Zone 2 requires an additional power source to drive speakers (i.e. second receiver). So, by cleaning up my connections to main receiver via HDMI, I've pretty much made zone 2 output useless since the only signals I can send to second receiver are AM/FM tuner.

Sony STR-DH820

Lida Kraz, Amazon

  • Summary: It is still sitting in its box, has not been taken out. My last Sony amp was in the silver colour, which Sony no longer manufactures in. And it worked great until the cat peed on it. Hate black ..... manufacturers are really cutting down on giving customers choice (might be economic) but who wants a stack of black equipment in a room. Come on Sony and the others, bring back silver and even another more interesting colour than black.

  • Summary: Great amp BUT does not support iPhone 4s and above, which totally sucks!!!!!! You would take it that there would not be a compatibility issue, but there sure is.

Great value - complex though

  • Summary: My first impressions of this unit is that it looks great paired with a large Sony TV and has a discrete information panel in a bit of a dated style. That's fine as most of the functionality is available on screen. It switched on and off with the TV which was great. The remote is very long and I have to say intimidating. There seems more functions on there than I would care for, yet I still know I'll end up with at least 2 remotes at times.

Good product, but....

  • Summary: Beware, this unit cannot handle 1080p50 or 1080p60 as far as we can tell. Sony don't make any clear statement about the spec even on their website (they just state that it does 1080p), but from our tests it will not go above 1080p30.

Sound mittelmäßig, HDMI an Laptop/PC -> Schwierig

Sam, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir den Receiver gekauft weil ich meine 7.1 Surround Anlage daran anschließen und als Soundquelle meinen Laptop nutzen wollte. mp3's/CD's über hdmi abspielen: - Gleich zu Anfang schon die erste Enttäuschung, über den neo6 mus Modus (welcher eigentlich Stereo-quellen wie mp3's wma's usw. auf alle Lautsprecher verteilen soll) funktioniert nicht.

Eine kleine Enttäuschung :(

Ramon Alshuth, Amazon

  • Summary: Schon immer wollte ich mir eine schöne Stereoanlage kaufen. Letztendlich viel meine Wahl auf Den Sony STR DH820 und die Jamo 608 HCS 3. Ersteinmal möchte ich betonen das ich mit dem Klag und dem Bild sehr zufrieden bin. Ich betreibe die Anlage meistens per Neo 6 Modus (Movie/Music) oder per 2CH. Die Beiden Frontlautsprecher betreibe ich per Bi-Amp. Man hat viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, so das man eigentlich nicht gezwungen ist den "Sound Optimizer" nutzen müssen.
