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...

Very good

 

I got an new-looking "Refurbished" receiver in good packaging. Everything works well. I've left it on for over 3 months without any issues. .

Inexpensive, included mic for auto-configuration, all features work, good as new

Menu navigation is clumsy, takes a while to turn on

Nice Unit for the Bucks

 

Poorly packaged. On arrival the box had damage. Opening the box proved that damage was on the receiver it's self. Unit works great tho. Put it thru it's paces, pretty much what I wanted it for. Other than the dent from shipping. It's a great unit. It's...

Packaging needs to be improved. If it had been packaged right., it wouldn't have a dent. Looks like something fell on top of the box & damaged the housing of the unit. UPS must have dropped something on it

Loud static noise

 

4K passthrough (not useful yet)/HDMI/good sound

As soon as plugged into the outlet, the subwoofer starts generating intermittent but loud static noise that I couldn't get rid of, making watching TV impossible. I think the receiver for some reason interferes with my cable box since no such static...

It's working

 

Everything is working just fine so far. My system looked completely new, though the box it came in was slightly disconcerting

No complaints for now
