Product Reviews for Sony STR-DH810 1000W 7.1 Channel A/V Home Theater Receiver
from Undisclosed on 10/10/2011
This is the first separate receiver I've bought, and I'm glad I did. It was the obvious choice for me because I have this thing where I need to keep electronics the same brand.. Well, base electronics anyway. I have 3 Von Schweikert speakers for the front and 4 dinky Pioneer speakers for the surrounds, as well as the $100 Sony sub, and it all makes for a very nice system. If this receiver makes those dinky Pioneer surrounds sound as good as THEY do, I can't wait to add in the bookshelf speakers Sony has to offer. This thing sounds great!! The only thing I don't really like so far is that I can't figure out how to get the remote to work the blu-ray or the TV.. The bravia Sync isn't really working in my favor with that one. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Even so, this is still the second best purchase I've made next to the TV itself ;). Well played sony, well played.
PS 3 issues and tech support

Love the unit, only have two problems. Tech support is horrible and my PS3 3D will not work. I have narowed it down to the receiver (works if I skip it), level 4 tech support continues to say it's a TV problem. Anyone have 3d content from a PS3 working?
Excellent value for the price

VERY HAPPY with this receiver. .I needed to hook up a variety of analog sources-turntable, tape cassette, CD, and PC audio output amongst the HDMI and more modern features.Full disclosure= i did have to buy an additional switchbox to accomodate all of these RCA cable connections.. Sony tech support has been mostly very helpful! and knowledgable. .I am extremely pleased with the unit!

automatic switching of audio to match broadcast, price
no HDMI input for BD
The only complaint I have so far is the BD does not have a choice for HDMI. So you have to use the HDMI1 button as your BD. You would think that since Sony makes a BD with HDMI that they would have an HDMI input for the BD.

Easy to set up, Multiple connections available, various sound modes
The speaker connections
When I knew I was going to go with a surround sound set up, it would begin with a Sony AV Receiver. I bought it and connected the cable box and a pair of Sony SS 6000 speakers. I now have an XM Radio, PS3, iPod, TV sound for the Wii and the PS2 (before the PS3). I also added a pair of sony bookshelf speakers. This thing does it all and I still have room for more connections. I would only change the speaker connection type to the same type that are on the speakers.
