Comments about Sony STRDH550 5.2 Channel 4K AV Receiver:
Needed a new Sony Amplifier to replace my old unit. Looked on the Sony website, found this and was ideal for what I wanted. Needed an Amplifier that I could use on all my external devices (TiVo, Apple TV, Sony Blu-ray player). Four HDMI ports and one HDMI IN from the TV, making it easy to connect the above devices to the relevant HDMI ports so everything now is run through the Amplifier and I have now got away without using my separate TOSLINK Optical cables.I do miss the Blue DTS bar that illuminated on my old Amplifier, but I do love the design of this new Amplifier. Will always choose Sony. The USB port to charge and play music from my iPhone and iPad is also a great idea.Everything was so easy to set up. The speaker connections were a little fiddly as they are situated close together so the middle ones can be a pain, but have not let that spoil my purchase so I am more than happy. The auto-calibration also made things a lot easier with the set-up and even the onscreen HOME menu made navigation easier and even renamed the displayed outputs without the use of the manual booklet.10/10 for me. Thanks Sony.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

great receiver but...
This worked great for what I needed but the receiver goes back to TV mode when I turn it back on. Kinda annoying that I have to get up and find the receiver remote and switch it back to Sat/cable mode every time.
SONY 5.2 Ch A/V Receiver does what its well
Bought this to power in-wall Dolby 5.1 speakers in the new house. Easy set up. Like the SONY "tie-in" with other products that are SONY. For example, we have a SONY Blu-Ray and TV. One press turns them on if watching a DVD movie. So, staying with the SONY "system" has been a reward. Once in a while I'll experiment but can usually get back to what I've set up pretty easily. Wish I had bought the higher model w/ built-in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth.
easy to operate

I had another brand before but this one operates a lot better and the surround sound is great. It operates just the way I like it, easy.
Respectable 5.2 channel receiver
from Sacramento, CA 95818, USA
Receiver does a good enough job of delivering the impact and detail one would expect from high resolution audio formats. The FM tuner leaves a little to be desired, but none-the-less, it does it's job. Overall, if you have a BluRay player of TV with networking already (Wi-Fi), this is a GREAT non-networked receiver and will perform well above it's modest price tag!
This is an excellent home theater reciever. I have nothing but praise for it - it meets all my needs and then some.
great receiver at a good price
Used in my home. Great sound and no distortion.
Great Small Home Theater Hub

After about 4 months of use, I am very happy with this receiver. I'm running a DVD payer, Direct TV sound, a turntable (with its own pre-amp) and a Wii with HDMI adapter through it, and they all work great and sound fabulous. I use it for listening to MP3s thru the front USB jack also. Very nice! I have a great pair of vintage Pioneer speakers for fronts, a Polk Audio center channel speaker and a pair of Polk Audio flush mounts in the ceiling for rears. Recently added a Pyle 12-inch Sub run off a 150 watt plate amp in the ceiling. Now I can rock the house at real rock concert volume and the sound is tight and undistorted. Great for movies, music, Wii games or standard TV.
Great Unit, good buy !
from Naperville, IL 60564, USA
I bought this unit to replace a Sony STRAV1070. It really simplified my cabling. I hooked it to my Sony Bravia flat screen and used a Phillips power strip that had a feature that would turn on the Bose powered speaker system when it sensed the amp had turned on. Now I have it all controlled by my Comcast remote through the HDMI. Awesome!
does everything I needed it to do the set up was simple it has a remote the sound is excellent my old receiver was a technics I have a phono and tape deck connected to this receiver. best purchase ever for a sony
