5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star recommendation
I rate this Sony 3D AV Receiver 5* for the pure sound and visual experience.
Auto-Calibration microphone makes speaker set up so easy, ajusting for acustics of your room
speaker distance,impedance and speaker size etc. Individual speaker level which
was not possible with my previous amp. All the Cinema Digital sound you could wish for.
DTS HD Master...

I upgraded from the Sony DN-1000 to this new amp and I'm so glad I did the sound quality is alot better and there are more sound formats to choose from, Dolby Prologic II Z sounds alot better than the previous format Dolby Prologic II X. Dolby have upgraded the format to suit the latest and greatest in 2 and 3D if you've got the cash upgrade it's worth it for the full 3D experience

This is an excellent piece of kit. I think this is a bargain price.
This amplifier rocks. Do not spend on expensive amps. This one does
the job decently.

Took quite a time to set up the Sony STR-DH520 7.1 3D AV receiver following re-reading of on-line instructions from the Sony website and from information booklet supplied. I succeeded in connecting and using my existing wall mounted speakers from my former Sony DAV-DZ230/DZ231 DVD Home Theatre System with very good results. Please note Sony do not recommend use of these speakers. However, after several months of use I can confirm that I have had excellent results using the different sound output fields available with the STR-DH520. Ultimately the choice is yours if you are replacing an existing home theatre system - I recommend trying to use the existing speakers before buying replacements. The only item missing was a suitable sub-woofer but despite repeated emails to Sony they chose not to recommend a suitable speaker, which I regard as terrible customer service (!). Having sourced a suitable sub-woofer and after replacing the poor quality linking cable supplied with the STR-DH520, I can confirm the speaker system now operates brilliantly with great surround sound using the existing four surround and single front Sony speakers, together with good base outputs from the sub-woofer I purchased. This arrangement now makes use of the 7.1 (7 x speakers) recommended for the STR-DH520, which cleverly interprets the sound output, i.e. Dolby II, from HD TV, DVD player or digital satellite systems..

Initially problems were subsequently identified as being due to the poor quality linking cable to with

this is a truly fantastic amp the sound and power are only matched by the really low price.
I use it to power my home cinema system which recreates the surrond sound. better than the cinema.
playing my music also has more than enough power to do justice to the sound.
i would highly recommend this amp for true reproduction and fidelity.
