Sound is amazing. Equalizer too basic. Menu system poor
 
Sony STR-DE598 FM Stereo/FM-AM ReceiverI love everything about it except for the menu system. Everything is interlinked. For example, when the front speakers are set to a certain volume, the back can't go any higher than the front setting. Also, the menu system is not very navigable. I'd rather have an equalizer menu with separate settings for different frequencies. The only ones available are bass and treble. Otherwise the system is solid and delivers awesome sound. I just don't like the ...

Good Value
 
Excellent performance for the price, but the manual is very poor in some respects. For example, it doesn't tell you that you need to select a synthesized listening environmment to get the unit to go into a 5.1 or 6.1 mode?! You can minimize the enhancement so it's not noticeable, and it's not a problem once you know about this anomaly. There's also a bizarre setup shortcut process that is amazingly confusing. The normal setup procedures are fine. Also, the 598 only has a coax digital input for...

Nice Receiver!
 
I got this receiver, because it was cheap, and because it solved a couple of deficiencies of my old Sony STR-DE685, namely:The 685 stupidly couldn't do an all-channel stereo sound field, whereas the 598 can;andThe 685 stupidly could do A *or* B switching, but not A+B, whereas the 598 can do A+B as well as A/B.Sorry, but those two features (or the lack thereof) were driving me crazy. The all-channel stereo on the 598 makes it worthwhile.I give it only four...

Cheap but not easy
 
This receiver is good if you don't much care about what you're getting, you just want 6.1 sound. The power is good but the manual is poorly written and the level adjustment menu lacks options for adjusting the left and right front speakers but you can adjust all the other channels. You are forced to settle on the fixed front channel volume and must reduce the other channels to be in line. (you need a level meter to do this) Why give the option to adjust if you can't adjust fully. How is one ...

Rockin' with Sony
 
You can't beat the price on this for the options you can create with it. It was a bit confusing at first for me as I'm not terribly experienced with things like this. The manual helped somewhat. A few late nights later, employing alot of determination and caffiene I have my computer hooked into my Bose speakers as well as a little amp to my turntable. Not so many years ago, radios and receivers came in seperate units taking up more space than was convenient. This unit is both attractive and much...

Sony STR-DE598
 
I Would say it's a good reciever overall. Only thing is that they should have been put an outlet since they put all these features.

Does not have S-Video.
 
The Amazon description states this unit has S-Video which is incorrect. This receiver is a great value otherwise.
