  • Super Simple Sony

    Oct 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Entry-Level Features; Good Tuner; Well Made; Easy To Use
    Cons: Lack Of Digital Inputs; No S-Video Inputs

    Summary: In July I reviewed a Kenwood KRF-5050 receiver, it was a bargain, Dolby Digital and DTS processing, loads of features and a great sound performance, all for 180. However over the last few months I have had my eye on the UK Home Cinema market, and what ... read more

  • Great sound for those on a budget

    Apr 25, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound, compatibility
    Cons: Manual a little confusing for first-time hookups

    Summary: I bought my receiver as the centerpiece of the new home theater system I was building, and after comparing prices and straying from my typical choice, Pioneer, I settled on the 475. I loved the looks and functions on the unit when I saw it in the ... read more

  • Very nice features for a entry-level receiver

    Jul 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low price, excellent display, source renaming
    Cons: Lack of ProLogicII, remote layout, durability (?)

    Summary: This receiver was my first DD/DTS receiver, and I was very happy with how it performed. The physical dimension of the receiver is shorter than others, which may be a blessing for people short on space. The display on the receiver is ... read more

  • Good first receiver

    Pros: Good sound, many sound modes, cheap, good looking.
    Cons: No S-video.

    Summary: Specs • 80 Watts x 5 • 5.1 Channel Input • 8 32-bit DSP Modes • Digital Cinema Sound™ Processing • 1 Digital Coaxial Input • 1 Subwoofer Pre-Amp ... read more

  • High quality bargain

    Apr 13, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: clean sound, wide bandwidth, great separation, speaker binding posts, subwoofer level adjustment
    Cons: No line level center channel output, too many 2-channel modes

    Summary: Bottom line: the only way to top the Sony is with a 6-channel receiver. In my case, I have run out of speakers and room. The receiver's few faults can be overcome. I made the center channel speaker output into a line level output by adding a 4700 Ohm ... read more

  • Make your ears and your wallet happy!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid, quaility, great sound; great price for what you get.
    Cons: No switched power outlet for other components (like for your SW)

    Summary: Little by little I had been replacing my old home theatre system. First went the center channel speaker that came with my old system; then the front speakers. Recently I bought some B-I-C America in-wall speakers (recommended) to replace the rear ... read more

  • Worth every penny, great for a smaller room.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sounds great, price is right, DTS decoding.
    Cons: Could use more digital inputs.

    Summary: As I sit here in my bedroom, I cast a warm glance at my STR-DE475 Receiver. I realize that for the money, it's the best receiver I have ever bought. Dolby Digital, DTS, auto-switching, sound fields, and quality, for only $160? Sound impossible? Not any ... read more

  • The Perfect Receiver For Almost Any Home Theater System

    Nov 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Just about everything, especially price
    Cons: No S-video hookups

    Summary: How This Receiver Has Performed I couldn't be happier with the performance of my Sony receiver. It sounds incredible, has plenty of features and cost a fraction of comparably equipped units. It does everything I need except video ... read more

  • A solid, high quality receiver

    Aug 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Feature packed, Easy to set up, and inexpensive for having DTS.
    Cons: No "S" Video Input

    Summary: I looked around a lot before buying a receiver, mainly because I didn't want to buy a receiver that didn't have DTS, but was still under $300. Sony delivered, and provided a receiver that is full of usable features. The great thing about this ... read more

  • Excellent choice for entry level

    Jul 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound quality, AC3 and DTS 24 bit decoding, control layout
    Cons: No S video connectors, no remote light, no FM signal strength

    Summary: I bought this as a second system for my PC which has a DVD player and a Real Magic Hollywood+ DVD card with AC3 and DTS digital output. I just have some old ADS L300 bookshelf speakers for the mains, and some el-cheapo KLH center and surrounds (and no ... read more

  • Great receiver for under $200

    Jun 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good sound, does what a receiver should do
    Cons: No clock on front, no S-Video hookups

    Summary: I have owned this receiver for about 6 months now. It has served it's purpose quite effectively. I utilize my DVD player, a pioneer (see my review), as my CD player and have not had any conflicts or problems with the two working together. I see no reason ... read more

  • great purchase for the money

    Jun 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent features and easy to install
    Cons: No "S" video hook-up.

    Summary: I am slow to upgrade. I know the technology is out there, but I can not afford to make a bad purchase. I have been running my DVD player through a shelf system and had switched out to some low end Bose speaker, which are very good quality for the ... read more
