I replaced a pieced-together home theater system with this as my new system's centerpiece. Before, I had a DVD player that had its own decoder, then output in 5.1 separate analog channels, then ran to two separate amplifiers- one for front speakers, the other for center and surround. Although the Sony has multi-channel analog inputs which could have allowed me to keep my old DVD player, I decided to simplify my system. Now one optical digital cable connects the DVD player to the Sony amp, the...

I've been running my home theater on this receiver for about three weeks now.(1) The sound quality output to my Polk RT loudspeakers is just as good as I've come to expect from Sony. Good for both movies and music.(2) The design is very clean and fairly simple.(3) The set-up is not as intutive as the Sony STR-DE525 that I also have, but once I read the manual, it was not difficult. In fact, the "easy set-up mode" is quite...easy.(4) There is NOT the traditional wide-variety of DSP options on thi...

I purchased this receiver in order to obtain optical inputs so I could plug my Apple Airport with Airtunes in and listen to music from my computer. My previous receiver was a Sony STRGX47ES, which I have been happy with. I didn't want all the bells and whistles of the higher-end receivers and assumed the sound would be fine. Boy was I wrong. I plugged it in to my Paradigm Mini Monitors (which I highly recommend!) and the sound was unbelievably poor, direct from a CD. Even my wife, who normally d...

This amp replaced a ten-year-old Technics Pro-Logic amp that served me well but died suddenly.The 6.1 channels of 100 watts each deliver a much smoother and clearer sound in my Olson and Technics speakers than the old amp did. Music and movies sound better than I have ever heard in my family room. Other than special releases, I have no reason now to set foot in a movie theatre.The DSP features are plentiful enough for the average user; after all, who needs 11 different presets just to listen to ...

I have had this receiver for close to six years and it sounds just like it did when I got it, if not a little better. I used it in my bedroom for the longest time, then in a small living room where I watched all the Lord of the Rings movies which they all sounded like the theater, Loud hard hitting, clean and very crisp. I can't say I don't like the center channel sound because I have a crapy center channel speaker.the inputs and outputs are not assignable so I have my DVD player hooked up to Vi...

I replaced my old receiver with this one. In general I'm quite pleased. I can't, however, figure out how to make the subwoofer work with music; it only works on the "DVD" setting. The manual is no help at all and I haven't found what I'm looking for on the internet.Anyhow...as most people who purchase it will say, it's a great receiver for the price. Whatever you do, though, don't spend 275.00 on it! It doesn't even approach 200.00 anywhere else.

For those of you who have a Tivo, and also have a Sony AV Receiver model STR-DE597 this is for you. You may have noticed that none of the Tivo provided remote codes are able to control the volume on your Sony STR-DE597. Of course there is a trick. It is possible (and easy!)On the Sony AVR the command mode must be changed on the receiver to AV1. The receiver and the remote are factory set to AV2. Unfortunately, the Sony remote can not speak AV1. The side effect of this change will make the receiv...
