Carl, Birmingham Aston Love Sony products

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Sony ST-DH520 love the design looks very expensive,HDIM leads connections which was what I wanted because would mean less wires to mess about with works well with all other Sony products TV,PS3,Virgin/sky TV,as long as you have HDIM connections and items are digital comes on automatically if you turn on your PS3 or Sony TV.
Bad points:
Sony STR-DH520 not too sure about the power output claims to be seven hundred watts,I do have to crank up the volume to get the most out of it.
while playing the PS3 the sound out put is only on your two front speakers with no other options.
not enough synthesized sound options
input speaker connection of poor quality,felt as if they would break while using thick speaker wire,all the speaker inputs seemed too close together as you add more speakers,even the FM aerial was a to fidgety
I did find overall connecting the input wires not well thought out by Sony.
when the power supply is turned on their is a large electrical thump from the from the unit,sounds like some electronic relay turning on the power,it doesn't come through the speakers just from the unit it self.
