        Comments about Sony STR-DH540 5.2-Channel 4K A/V Receiver:

        I bought this reciever because my old Sony reciever(a very old TA-AX440) went bad. I thought it would be smaller in size and do a multitude of things the 440 wouldn't and while it will do all those things and more, it is a bit bigger but every thing about it is bigger not the least is the sound.So if you don't mind the size it will handel anything you can throw at it from your home studio. So far I have it running through some Polk Audio Speakers routed through my sound card on my computer and I'm very pleased with the way it performs. There is a learning curve to go through if you hook up the t.v.,c.d., suround sound, sub woofers, etc and all the other things it will handle (5 channels)...since I have a small music room I could use something smaller but my fault for not checking that out.. overall great buy and since I'm into listening and recording my own C.Ds. I'll make room.

            This receiver does everything a basic receiver needs to do, and is perfectly good enough for the 90% of us that aren't hardcore audiophiles. It has great sound with decent speakers, has standby passthrough, and I love how Bravia sync simplifies my entire entertainment system.

              Set up to our Sony Bravia TV, PS3 without any problems. Smooth and easy set up. Great sound with the auto calibration feature. We were thinking about getting new speakers, but this receiver makes our current speaker sound great! Guess it was our old receiver that held back the quality of our speakers. Only had the receiver for 1 month, but we are very happy with our purchase so far.
