This review is from: SONY STRDH540 5.2-Channel AV Receiver

Pros:

Replaced a New Pioneer Receiver that failed in just one month. This unit for most movies only needs to be turned up to 25-30% volume to be very loud with a 5.1 speaker setup with 2 towers up front. I like that you can set a sound mode default for different audio modes which allows you get the sound you want for music and movies. Much better for music then my Pioneer was. Auto calibration does need adjustment as it sets non full range speakers to large so it will take a bit of adjustment once the calibration is run but that is pretty much standard for any HT receiver so I didn't dock any points. Sleek design and easy to use and setup despite what I have read from others plus you can adjust sound while playing content which makes it great for setting the optimal crossovers for your content and balancing the system. All in All I couldn't be more pleased for the price this unit packs punch and sounds great for any budget conscious theater system. One other plus which was a requirement for me is the banana plugs, many receivers in this price range don't have the support but this one does which makes installation a breeze. All in All excellent and Sony Quality to boot. Some of the other vendors are lacking in Quality Control these days. This will be the one that just works and lasts and that's what I need, solid HT performance that lasts.

Cons:

None
