Sony STR-DG920 review: Sony STR-DG920

 

Sony STR-DG920

Four HDMI inputs; basic graphical user interface; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; XM-ready; upconverts analog signals to 1080p over HDMI output with good quality; automatic speaker calibration.

No multiroom functionality; no S-Video inputs; sound quality a bit below some competitors; some minor video scaling issues.

Sony's STR-DG920 is a standout midrange AV receiver, with a basic graphical user interface, four HDMI inputs, and solid video processing.
