Sony STR-DG820 review

 

On-board HD audio decoding ; four in, one out HDMI ; dynamic, detailed, exciting sound ; good with stereo music, too

Average build and style ; multichannel inputs are lacking

Brilliant all-rounder – this receiver will take some beating

Sony STR-DG820 review

 

With best-in-class digital connectivity, does this Sony rule the roost?

Clinically clean sound ; Fine with dramas ; Simple setup

Too clinical for game mayhem ; No S-video, upscaling, or analogue multichannel inputs

Fails to make much of an impression with its clinical performance, but this receiver wins us over with its user-friendliness

All seemed quiet on the Sony front until they visited our Tedd Q recently and dropped off a sample of the -DG820. As befits its price tag, the Sony has the look of a budget receiver with its old-school silver chassis. Build quality is decent enough:...
