  • A PowerFul Thing....Sound

    Nov 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Sound
    Cons: $$$$$$

    Summary: I have owned a STR-DE935 Sony Home Theater Digital/Analog Surround sound for a little over a year now. I had bought the unit from Best Buy, for $500. It replaced my old STR-D1015 Sony Surround System. As you can tell, Sony, is the main provided for my ... read more

    Pros: Excelent all around reciever!
    Cons: No S-Video In's or Out's

    Summary: OK first let me start by saying I might be a tad biased growing up on sony products. However this reciever is great. I first bought the STR-DE915 (the model right before this) and after about a year of use the rear speaker outputs fried so..... I went ... read more

  • A tweakers delight.

    Jun 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality build, lot's of features, versatile and it's a Sony.
    Cons: No onscreen display and fiddly to adjust.

    Summary: This one's more relevant to 'european' surfers. I live in the UK and so the model I own is slightly different - STR DB925. I bought the Sony after reading a rave review in a magazine that I trust, I had to pre-order the Sony from a dealer because only a ... read more

  • Powerful DTS Sound with many options

    Apr 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: DTS Receiver, Fiber Optic Sound, LCD Remote, Supports to Subs, S-Video
    Cons: Not enough Fiber ports, can be a bit confusing to learn

    Summary: For the money, I could not have bought a better receiver. I love impressing my friends with all the options that my Sony STR-DE925 receiver has. Nothing like listening to dance music in an Opera House. Sony's Cinema channels allow you do get a ... read more

  • Surreal-ly Good Surround

    Jul 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great functionality, plenty of connection points
    Cons: Limited remote, awkward speaker connections

    Summary: Want absolutely great surround processing? This receiver is just the ticket. I bought the Sony STR-DE925 to upgrade from an old Magnavox Pro-logic receiver. It was time to go digital, as I'd recently added DVD and Minidisc to my component ... read more

  • Nice...at the right price.

    May 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap. Great sound. Easy to use.
    Cons: Lack of S-VHS inputs. Infuriating remote.

    Summary: While making the choice to evolve to digital home theater was an easy one, choosing a receiver was not. I was looking at the 935 but I found an open box 925 for sale at Sears(yuck). Well, the deal couldn't be beat so I packed it up and went home to try ... read more

  • Decent Receiver, Decent Price

    Apr 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fairly Intuitive / Cool dimmer feature for late night viewing
    Cons: Non-programmable remote

    Summary: I started looking for a Dolby Digital and DTS machine because my previous receiver was a Sony STR-DE865, which was a Dolby Pro-Logic receiver only (and was about 2 years old). I purchased my first DVD player in March of '98 and wanted to ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Sound
    Cons: None

    Summary: We started out with another system for about 4 days and took it back because the sound was bad. According to my husband it was not loud enough. He came home with this receiver because we had the Sony 51 disc cd player and it was compatible. I have ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound Quality and abundant inputs/outputs
    Cons: Nasty Remote Control

    Summary: The STR-DE935 is the first Sony product I have purchased in many years. Having been in the audio business for many years I have always been impressed with Sony's sound quality (especially their proprietary sound field enhancements). Sony's ergonomics ... read more

  • High Quality at a Midrange Price

    Dec 15, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Quality at medium Price, Easy to set up, Customizable soundfields
    Cons: No S-Video pass through, cramped back panel

    Summary: If you don't have thousands of dollars to spend, but need something that has high-end features like DTS decoding and customizable soundfields, then you should consider the STR-DE925. Coming from Sony, you know to expect quality, but I think they do an ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent sound, many DTS selections
    Cons: Complicated Remote Control

    Summary: When looking for a surround sound receiver I wanted a reasonably-priced powerful receiver with optical digital inputs and DTS. The Sony seemed a good choice, as its specs compared favorably with higher-priced equipment. The sound is ... read more
