To hear bass sounds better, use a subwoofer.
 
I had a similar case with bass sound, which did not come sufficiently good from str-de485. I used a subwoofer and adjusted the surround sound levels with the available controls on the amplifier/receiver; it improved a lot. This is a good product with a low price, especially for home usage. 80 watts is more than sufficient to shake the windows.

Good Entry-Level Receiver
 
Sony's STR-DE485 is quite a good entry-level A/V receiver. The sound is crisp and clean with little distortion at any volume level, and the FM tuner can lock on to even the weakest stations. With 6 available inputs, the unit is capable and a great component to build a home theater around.Sony also offers the longest warranty in the industry -- competing receivers offer only a 1 year or 90 day warranty while Sony covers both parts and labor for a full two years.Quality and warranty as...

Poor Shipping
 
Let me start by saying that I am very pleased with the receiver. It functions perfectly and performs to my expectations. I would be happy to rate it five stars if it was not for the shipping. It was several days after placing my order until it was shipped. I may be spoiled by previous orders placed with Amazon that shipped on that day and arrived promptly.

It's alright.
 
The receiver is good for entry level but you will need to run your sub woofer through one of your front speakers. Even when run on GAME mode (the highest bass output mode, however it does not utilize your center speaker). The bass signal from the sub woofer port on the back does not send out even half the signal that it should. I have a 450 watt 12" powered sub woofer and it barely makes it kick. I run my wires from receiver to sub, sub to right speaker. Makes a mess of the wires if you place yo...

Still works great after all these years!
 
I used this receiver back 10 or 11 years ago with no issue running a SA-WM40 Sony sub which I think was only 100 watts and it rumbled and worked great. Anyway over the years this receiver worked its way into may garage with (2) Sony SS-MF600H speakers hung from my roof and still works amazing. I only use it for music these days but I am still happy with having bought it. Any piece of electronics you still have 10+ years later and are still happy with it is a good investment in my book. Yes it wa...
