I upgraded to this Receiver from a much older Sony Receiver I purchased well over 10 years ago.

Great price for 7.2 sound. 145w per ch.
This amp sounds pretty good and has more than enough power.

I have the Sony SS-B3000 Bookshelf Speakers as my fronts, the Sony SS-B1000 5-1/4-Inch Bookshelf Speakers as my side fills, the Sony SS-CR3000 as my center and rear fill speakers and 3) Sony SA-W3000/Z active 12" subs... that makes it a 7.3 actually!

The sound is incredibly clean with plenty of juice.

The OSD (on screen display) is a cool feature. Once your TV is connected to the amp, use the included remote and access the TV display to setup your system. Works flawlessly and is very simple to understand.

The one issue that puzzled me for a couple days was the speaker setup selection. The options are 3/4.2, 3/4, 5/2.2, 5/2, etc. Nowhere was 7.2 listed. Nowhere in the manual is this even dealt with. All of the sudden late one evening listening to Morphine it hit me. VOILA... 3/4.2 was 7.2... 3 fronts: l/c/r, 4 rears: ls, lr, rr, rs and, of course, the subs. After that obstacle was overcome all else was a breeze.

I used the calibration mic and auto tuned the speakers. Cool Feature. The software figures out speaker distance from the mic down to the inch! Nice to know. Now I can set my speaker distance up super accurately!

Next I use the remote/OSD to manually adjust volume levels, treble and bass and crossover points. Love It!

All in all, it took me a few days of listening and playing around with it to really decide how I wanted to tweak the whole system. Amazing. Manually setting it all up took it to a whole nother level.

When our old Sony amp finally bit the dust after 15 years there was no doubt in my mind about what brand to buy. I went to the internet to find out where the industry had gone. I found that the magic "word" is HDMI. I looked at our new HD TV: HDMI port. I looked at our Directv: HDMI port. I looked at our old DVD: are you kidding? I looked at the specs for the Sony STR-DH740: 5 (yes, five) HDMI ports! That settled it.
I ordered the Sony amp, the Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray, and several HDMI cables from Amazon. When they got here I plugged in 3 HDMI cables and the power cables and speaker wires. Then came the cute little surprise. You plug in a microphone (included), hold it where you usually sit, and click on go. The amp sends loud tones at various frequencies to each of the speaker ports. The amp determines which speakers are connected, what the audio characteriistics are for each one, and sets the appropriate volumes. The only problem was that I only got to do it once!
Works great, sounds great, looks great, great pictures.
Keep in mind that without HDMI cables and supporting electronics nothing works very well.

This is my third Sony receiver and while there are some quirks, I am overall very pleased. Sound quality is excellent once you read the manual. I use connected banana clips for all my speakers, and it seems that Sony spaced out the distance from the red to the black a little more than what is standard. The banana clips do connect, but the connections on the receiver do bend in slightly to make it work. I did use the microphone to do an initial setup but then needed to go into the menus and tweak some things. First of all it set my speakers to Large. I have a 7.2 DefTech Mythos setup with 2x 8" Subwoofers, so I had to go into the config and change my speakers to Small. It also set the +db ratings for my rear and side surrounds way too high, so I needed to move those down, and move my center channel up. But a lot of that is personal preference. Also, even though I am running 2x subs and they are slightly different (both in distance away from the listener and power rating and construction) there seems to just be a master subwoofer setting, so plan on tweaking your subs individually to make the most of your setup. Another quirk is that the receiver will kind of detect what AV source is active and set it to that, so there were times I would be in the process of turning on the TV, Blu Ray and receiver and it would flip off the AV source I actually wanted because it detected something else. Which means I had to hit the Blu Ray button on the remote, not the end of the world. It did take me an evening of reading the manual to figure out some of the sound fields. By default mine started in 2ch, and it took me a while to figure out what the differences were and what I wanted, but once I did the sound field was outstanding.Read more ›

I chose the Sony STR-DH740 7.2 AV Receiver to power my Energy Take Classic 5.1 surround system mainly for the following reasons:

* I did not want an av receiver with the extra "Smart" features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Airplay for Apple products, or other built-in apps. I already have a Samsung Smart TV, so it ended up saving me $150-250 just for not wanting the extra features on my av receiver.
* I wanted an av receiver that offered all banana plug inputs, which turned out to be a limited amount of choices in the entry-midrange av receiver market.
* Sony's website ended up having the best deal on the Sony STR-DH740 for a limited time. The DH740's MSRP is $299.99. Sony had a $50 off sale and then signing up for Sony's Education Store brought the price down to $226 with free 2 day express shipping.

Here's what I used to complete my setup:

*Energy Speaker Take Classic 5.1 Surround System
* Various lengths of the AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable- Supports Ethernet, 3D, and Audio Return [Newest Standard].
* Sewell Development Corp SW-29223 Pro Maestro Banana Plugs with Gold Connectors.
* C&E 100 Feet 14AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Speaker Wire Cable.
* Mediabridge Ultra Series Subwoofer Cable - (15 Feet, White) - Dual Shielded with RCA to RCA Gold Plated Pro Grade Connectors.

Having read the entire Sony manual beforehand, the initial av receiver setup was straightforward with no surprises. I like that my HDMI devices are routed to the av receiver and only one HDMI cable coming from the "HDMI OUT" slot goes to my TV. My Samsung UN60F6300 60-inch LED HDTV instantly recognized the av receiver input and configured itself appropriately. My surround sound system is the Energy Speakers Take Classic 5.1 system.
