Workhorse at a fair price
 
This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) Ive been a Sony loyalist for thirty years, and this is the 8th Sony receiver I've purchased. None of the previous seven failed, mind you. I've just continually upgraded. Even the first one I bought more than twenty years ago is chugging along fine in my garage. But this one has every possible bell and whistle, and the integration into my entertainment system is phenomenal. I had one of thos...

Very Good Stereo Sound but Limited Power in Surround Mode
 
This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) Many reviewers have already mentioned the strengths of this unit therefore I will not repeat all the features most of you already know about but I will review the audio quality. I am reviewing the European model but it should be identical to the US model ( except for the power transformer ).I will agree with most reviewers that this unit is a good bang for the buck. Then why did I aw...

Worth the wait!
 
This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) It seems like it took Sony forever to get this to market. It was worth waiting for! Although I am using this receiver in a 5.1 configuration, the sound is exceptional when compared to the Yamaha 5.1 receiver it replaced. Setup was incredibly easy with the HDMI cable hookups to my Sony DVD player and Sony Bravia 32" LCD TV. The elimination of all the audio and video spaghetti plugged in at th...

Great Value
 
All in all, a nice feature set and great sound. All the issues people talk about with HDMI aside, this unit will do the job. I give it 4 stars for one reason, I wouldn't use this for driving speakers rated at 4 ohms if you listen loud. I have purchased 3 onyo recievers in the past two years, and two of them have problems. I love onkyo products, but have concerns with reliability and qc. A key factor in the purchase of this unit was the Depth being under 13 inches. Were the yamaha units I wante...

Not For Audiophiles
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) I bought this to replace a Harmon-Kardon AVR330 since the HK didn't switch HDMI and didn't support the newest lossless codecs (Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio). I hadn't intended to buy this receiver, but a large price drop made me jump.For a non-demanding buyer, this...

Sony A/V Receiver/Amp
 
This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) My original need was for an a/v receiver that had HDMI hookups. With the SONY STR-DG820, which has four (4) HDMI inputs and one (1) HDMI output, I found the perfect blend of quality features and affordability. Now I can hookup both my Blu-ray and standard DVD players, along with VHS and HD Cable, and output the audio to my 5.1 speakers while using the HDMI output to direct all images to my SONY ...

Good while it worked!
 
This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) I had the STRDG820, and it was great while it worked, but after about a month the digital display broke and that was where the real problems began: dealing with Sony.I've been trying to get this fixed and have wasted countless hours on the phone. I began by bringing the unit to a Sony recommended repair place, Electronic Design and Service in Glendale, CA. They tried repeatedly to ...

Not a good quality receiver, lacks power too
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sony STRDG820 7.1 Audio Video Receiver - Black (Electronics) After just 5 months of use I had to send mine for warranty repair today.It stopped outputting video from the HDMI out and it damaged one of my TV's HDMI inputs too. I also noticed that this receiver doesn't have the same quality parts as my old Sony which is still working afte...
