Sony STR-DH820 amplifier

 

Sony STR-DH820 review: an A/V receiver with plenty of power, iPod support and comprehensive codec support

Simple auto calibration ; Plenty of power

Front-mounted ports can't be hidden

The STR-DH820 adds some useful features from the entry-level STR-DH520. As A/V receivers go, it does a pretty good job and doesn't have any significant failings that would annoy the majority of users.

Great value, exciting sound, powerful, tight bass, accurate steering of effects

No network functionality means no music streaming services

Best home cinema amplifier up to £350, Awards 2011. A fantastic AV amp for those wishing to build a separates system

Incredible buy

 

Does everything it says it would. Almost sets itself up. Sound quality is excellent. This receiver is worth much more than the price I paid.

Great Receiver

 

Went to the local 'big box' discount retailer and they couldn't come close to meeting this deal. As always, this company delivers in record time, thanks!

Very good, I think?

 

It was easy to set up and it sounds great when it works. But sometimes turns off while watching TV. You have to turn it back on and raise the volume. I may have to return it if the problem continues.

Sounds great

Turns itself off in the middle of a TV program or movie
