I was so excited to buy my first surround receiver to match my exsisting Sony componets & speakers.

It's a Sony product

Even if your a Home Audio Spec. you won't figure it out

Consumer review by:

Solid receiver for apartment or dorm room

 

Currently as a college student I find the STR-DG600 a solid receiver. I run old Bose Lifestyle speakers and an Infinity 8" sub and find the sound excellent.

Strong receiver for the price

No HDMI. Not Multi-room compatible
