4 out of 5 stars   Good value and function.
By Chris Kase (Chicago, IL) June 17, 2013
Review submitted for Sony STR-DH540 5.2 Channel 4K AV Receiver (SNSTRDH540)
Verified Purchaser
Other Comments: I purchased and use this Sony 5.2 in conjunction with a Sony LCD TV. The compatibility, as one would expect, was seamless. The primary use is connection to external speakers, along with a newly installed center channel speaker. I do not have sub-woofers yet. Does it sound like an old tube McIntosh amplifier? Maybe not, but for the money (under 250) this is an exceptional value.
