Sony STR-DA3600ES AV Receiver Reviewed


The sound on this Sony possesses more than adequate power and finesse and like most Sony's, it is very reliable. In addition, the Auto Calibration on the STR-DA3600 "was by far the smoothest, fastest and also one of the most accurate I've ever had...

The two most important things to consider when trying to determinewhether or not a receiver is the right fit for your home theater areits feature set and performance; in that regard the Sony STR-DA3600ESis solid. As I mentioned in the first paragraph,...

Sony STR-DA3600ES review


Another disappointing home cinema receiver from Sony, which seems to have lost its form of late

Interesting features ; powerful, tightly controlled bass ; good detail

Lacks refinement, dynamics and scale ; sounds too uptight

Disappointingly, the Sony finds itself outgunned and out enthused by all of its closest rivals

Best reciever ive owned`


I was a little taken back by some of the reviews I have seen, saying the quality wasent what they expected, but went for it anyways, and all I can say is the best thing to remember is that quality is subjective, go to a shop and listen to this beauty...

Excellent sound, GUI setup is quick and easy to understand, Bravia Sync features are excellent

Those posts, if you dont use bananna plugs, its tight fitting, and with the plugs it seems like alot of stress on them

Good, but not great


I bought this to replace a Sony 500ES integrated amp I bought in the 1980s to increase my home stereo's flexibility. The build quality of the 3600 is on par with the 500 but the first thing I noticed was there were no more switched/unswiched 110V...

Good power, great HDMI output, fairly intuitive programming

Needs more power, needs more digital input flexibility, almost great

Sony STR-DA3600ES


Excellent range of features. Particularly the ethernet switch feature puts this above other makes for me. Easy to setup. Microphone supplied to assist setup of speakers.

Perhaps lacks slight base but otherwise no issues whatsoever.

Sony STR-DA3600ES


Great sound matched with SAVS150 7.1 speakers. Love the internet connection and ability to listen to internet radio. DLNA network connection means it can stream audio and video from home network. Optional iPod dock plays music from iPod

Poor on screen GUI. Complex to navigate to a specific internet station or tune stored on home network. The buit in radio tuner is not DAB.....will be out of date in only a few years when all radio will be DAB.
