"Very Impressed, better than Denon 3808 or Onyo 805"5.0 starson by rseibert
Pros: Beast of power with (tube sound)warm sound
Cons: at 40lbs it broke my back
Summary: Had a Onkyo TX-SR805 for a few weeks until I heard this baby and it blew me away, sold the Onkyo TX_SR805 and bought this Sony beast, have always had Denon or Onkyo products and always thought Sony to be inferior consumer marketed goods untill I heard and played with the Sony STR-DG1000, I run 7 Boston Micro 100's and just unbelievable, sounds as warm as my tube gear! Maybe Sony finally wants to compete with the big boys, good job! I read somewhere the video processing wasen't that good, all I say to that is bullpoop! I run a 1080p projector in my HTR and the picture looks better than my HQV processor?! Good job Sony!
