bang for buck

 

I wanted to upgrade to a proper receiver and speakers from my soundbar and i didnt want spend a lot of money . When this refurb deal came i took a gamble and i am glad i did. overall a much better experience than a soundbar could only dream of providing.

No bluetooth

Worked great for two years, now it is a boat anchor.

 

Recently the unit 12/2015 started failing. First, the radio would not play sound through the speakers, then after a week or so, the cable would not play through the speakers, now I have to find a repair shop to see if it is repairable. Would not do...

Works, has great sound, very versatile.

Manual not included. No warranty, as is.

Not worth the money

 

Looking back, I should not have purchased a refurbished receiver/amp. Or I should have bought a different brand. It's not worth money. I've had it for 7 months and HDMI DVD port is not working.

Good sound/amplification

DVD HDMI stopped working.

Sony STRDH540 5.2

 

Would buy it again if the price is under $200. I cant give this a 5 stars because there are more better recievers than this.

Bought this a year ago for $180 on sale. Works great till now

When it gets up to 90% of the volume sometimes it goes into protection mode. I rarely go up to 70-80

Defective product line

 

It sounds good when it actually works

Never before have I seen a piece of equipment this defective by design. The biggest flaw being a PROTECTOR "feature" that suddenly shuts down the device for seemingly no reason at all. Upon closer inspection I believe it is related to overheating, but...
