NoemiBrown442's review of Sony STR-DE497 5.1


“Bullet proof amplifier”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by NoemiBrown442 (1 review written)

Have this amp from new and use with satellite, Blueray, DVD, digital/internet sources. TOSlink is brilliant and no synchronization issues. Dolby theater for surround is awesome. Has a lot of features I havent used, so still room for growth.

Has a multitude of inputs - analogue and digital. No HDMI but keeps working flawlessly. Not the loudest amp, but seldom distorts. Setup is simple and easy controls.

I had no problems with the remote which has survived a number of child induced accidents! I also had a situation where a child shorted one speaker wire - the amp just shutdown with no damage whew!

I have a Logitech programmable remote that works a treat - just press one button and it sets everything to the right sequence/settings etc.

I also use the amp to feed music outdoors (using the A+B) function to outdoor Audiolab speakers - runs those perfectly.

FM/AM radio is fair, but to be honest mine is working with a wire hanging out of the back of the stereo cabinet - not even a proper antenna.
