Best Receiver for under $500
 
I purchased this receiver to replace my 3 times broken $900 plus Onkyo TX 818 receiver for $475 with tax. I was surprised with this unit, cost half the price of my excellent sounding but poor quality 818 receiver but sounds just as good if not abit better. I rarely have to turn it up past 12 percent, I love the wifi and blue tooth, the only thing I don't like about this receiver is the hideous GUI, but besides that this was the best $475 with tax I've ever spent.

As advertised
 
I love this receiver! It takes a while to get through the set up but exploring and experimenting with the on screen menus is fun. I love that it connects so easily to my iphone to play music on Spotify, the TV does not have to be on for that. I programmed my Dish remopte to handle most of the basic functions of the Sony remote too.

Great buy
 
I just upgraded from another Sony A/V5.1 receiver ... To this one it works great with my 46XBR HX929 TV... It makes the Color and Pic even Better than it was before and to say that it was a great pic before... Even when I hook up my PS3 I was blown away on how much better the sound and the picture looks.... Like when playing call of Duty or Bioshock infinity ... U can hear when the are coming up behind you and what side left or right..... Blue ray movies sound just like the movie theater and loo...

Can't beat this for the price
 
This is one of the only "low-end" receivers out there that doesn't use those push-style speaker connections for all the speaker terminals! It has strong audio output, but definitely needs some fine tuning... Out of the box, the sub-woofer pre-out is somewhat muddy, need to mess with the filter settings to fix this (I like how there are two sub channels though). Don't use the auto-calibration microphone... it only samples the room from one position with a low quality mic and unless you have a sup...

This receiver may not be the top of the line but it sure has all the features that I was mostly interested in and it performs great! Would definitely recommend it.... :)

A big and easy upgrade from a 1990's JVC receiver
 
The Sony STR-DN840 is a 7.2 Channel 1050W A/V Receiver. It's a great value unless you need a second room setup. These are my first impressions. I expect I'll update this review later when I've lived with it a while.This is replacing a 1990's JVC compulink receiver with composite-only video. It's been a very good receiver but technology definitely moved on.The STR-DN840 Connectivity is pretty impressive with:1) Built-in Wi-Fi. This is B/G only so this could lim...

Ended up being good but problems during setup
 
I'm fairly experienced setting up audio equipment since I worked selling it for 4 years during college. I purchased the receiver today and got it all hooked up in a reasonable time. When I first turned it on the setup screen appeared and I was told to hit the + key to start. That's where the problems started. The remote wouldn't work. I did a little checking and the power and volume buttons worked but the arrow and + buttons didn't do anything. I packed up the receiver and brought it back to Bes...
