Great sound to work by!

Written By Wood Butcher, Prince George, Va. on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a simple 2 channel radio for my shop to replace a garage sale special that went south on me. The Sony STR DH 130 met all my needs. Because it has a remote, I was able to mount it eight feet in the air away from all the dust and shavings I generate. Even with the old no name speakers I used with my old radio it sounds great! I'm now back to whistling while I work. I'm no audiophile, but I enjoy good music and the Sony delivers sound with no static or distortion at the reasonable volume I like to listen at. It picks up all the stations in Richmond, about thirty miles away. I'm liking it!

Pros: Great sound, great reception, over all, just what I needed. And Crutchfield delivered in just one day.

Cons: Too many buttons on the remote control for what I'm using the radio for, but tolerable.

Great Performer

Written By Milton H, California on Saturday, October 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Sony performed perfectly as promised. However, I found I needed more capability than it had. I upgraded to a home theatre unit.

Pros: Simple to use and very easy to install. Very capable performer.

Cons: The manual, typical with Sony, is somewhat difficult to follow.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My 35 year old Sony Amp finally passed on and I needed something to power a CD player, Sat Radio, and enable me to listen to an occasional AM or FM radio broadcast. I realize that time and technology has rendered all of these obsolete, but I'm not ready to catch up just yet. I was looking for something basic and inexpensive to fill an immediate need. This unit does that perfectly. It is inexpensive, simple to install and use, sounds good, and can support other mediums such as a home theater system. The technical advisor at Crutchfield answered my questions clearly and completely, and the package arrived 3 days after purchase, just as advertised. If you are looking for a good, basic tuner/amp at a rock bottom price, you won't go wrong with one of these.

Pros: Excellent price. Good performance. Simple to install and use. Clean uncluttered appearance.

Cons: No balance control. Volume control requires a lot of rotation to adjust sound level up or down.

Nice foundation to a solid set up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price, I couldn't ask for more. Provides a whole bunch of options to build on and offers the flexibility I wanted to add additional components to my TV set up. As always, Crutchfield delivers.

Pros: A lot of options for additions and a budget friendly foundation.

Cons: master remote is daunting.

Written By Richard T., Maryland on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this to replace a receiver outside on my back deck. Works great & sounds fine for what I want it for. I'm partial to Yamaha, but this had a better price since I am using it outside. It is covered to keep out of the elements. Paired with Cambridge Soundworks Outdoor Speakers and a cheap dvd player to play cd's on. Puts out plenty of volume to drown out a neighbors 4 yappy dogs with The Grateful Dead (which she hates).

Pros: Good performance/cost ratio. Plenty of power. Easy use out of box. Fast, reliable service from Crutchfield.

Cons: Can only search for radio stations. Does not appear to have manual tuning. Digital readout for everything. Much prefer older models which have selector knobs & & finer tuner adjustment. I miss the loudness button from years ago.

Good for the Money

Written By AJ, Florida on Saturday, April 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just wanted something to amplify a television in my bedroom. It was either this, or two other brands Crutchfield doesn't carry. One was on close out from a local retail store. Never saw an actual close up of the one item in person, the other one on close out has a poor reputation and did not look well made inside. I trust Sony more, and so far, every Sony item I have that is manufactured in Malaysia has performed flawlessly over many years. The unit does a lot. It's all done electronically, every button you push, every knob you turn. The buttons could be better. The unit overall does more than I needed to amplify a bedroom television. I hooked up a Terk FM antenna which helped some. I collect and use many old receivers from the 1970s like the Pioneer SX-1250 and the Kenwood KR-9600. I have two, two-channel receivers from the 1990s that have a much heavier build-quality than this- however, I am pleased with this model for its price. It is well built to specs. I am pleased.

Pros: Small enough to stack in a bedroom. Well built. Versatile- you can re-assign buttons to perform other functions, it has many inputs. 90 watts per channel. Very nice remote. Excellent for the price.

Cons: Cheap feel to the buttons.

Sony STR-DH130 Review

Written By Wayne, Massachusetts on Monday, April 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased to replace a 1980s vintage Technics SA-206. Was hoping it would last my lifetime...Wanted a basic, quality receiver for music...and this had all the features I needed, was priced well. Other Sony products over the years have performed flawlessly, so I expect the same. Like Crutchfield for order fulfillment, quality service (if needed), and knowing the selection they carry is already pre-selected to deliver value and quality. (could spend eons on other online retailers to arrive at the same decision).

Pros: Easy to setup right out of the box for antennae and external speakers. 5 minutes max to swap my stereo units. Intuitive user interface with dials, push buttons, display, etc... Everything I expected in Sony was evident in the box, manual, unit packaging to protect scratches, all accessories included, etc... I'm not a sound audiophile...but do recognize a quality sound over a tinny/scratchy sound...and the sound is deep/rich. Again, I was looking for a quality basic receiver just for music.

Cons: none

Written By Anonymous, Iowa on Monday, March 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very affordable receiver that delivers a punch of power with wonderful clarity at low to medium volume levels when connected to a good auality pair of speakers.

Pros: Nice balance of tone. Bass levels are nice and do not disrupt the distortion level tones at mid to low high volumes. Affordable price and style make this a very welcoming part to anyone's lower priced stereo.

Cons: High volumes causes noticability to higher distortion ratios.

Great basic receiver, especially in this price range. I paired this with a set of Polk Audio TSi100 bookshelf speakers and they work great together! Seems like the more you crank it up, the better the package sounds. I may add a sub down the road but for now I'm definitely happy rocking out in my basement workshop!

Pros: Lots of power, good basic unit.

An absolute great buy for the price. Didn't need anything fancy. I did purchase a separate Cobra Airwave if we want to connect to a wireless device. Thinking of buying another for vacation home.

Pros: Great sound and price, not bulky or overly heavy, sleek look

Cons: Read the user guide to program preset channels. Not intuitive.

Very good receiver

Written By Johel, Florida on Monday, December 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first receiver which I purchased evaluating price versus value. Not being heavily into stereo equipment beyond a good listening experience, this receiver more than fulfills that requirement. The setup was easy, the instructions clear, and I was enjoying the receiver in a short period of time. Paired with Primus speakers recommended by the Crutchfield advisor the sound is very good. I would definitely recommend this receiver for the average buyer.

Pros: Easy setup. High quality. Great sound value for the price.

Cons: None that this neophyte user could discern.

Affordable and great!

Written By Roger, San Angelo, TX on Saturday, September 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm using this for my office PC sound and mp3 playing. It has replaced a 14 year old Sony receiver that died on me. I needed A and B outputs since I've run speaker wires out to the back patio too. In the office I'm using Bose AM3 speakers. So, I didn't need anything fancy or anything more than 2 channel for this usage.

One thing that took me by surprise was the "auto off" feature that turns the unit off after a period of time with no input signal. At first I thought there was something wrong. I was glad to see that it was supposed to do that and I have the ability to turn that feature off if I want to.

I've been using this new receiver for a couple of weeks now. If it lasts me 14 years like the other one did, I will be happy.

Pros: Cheap and does the job well.

Cons: None at all for my usage.

I installed one of these in a friend's motorhome and he and his wife absolutely love it. They couldn't believe that a receiver this good could be had at Crutchfield's price point. I already had one in my workshop and was familiar with it so I recommended it to them. This product offers many features and excellent sound for a unit in this price range, and of course Crutchfield is the best dealer out there - PERIOD. Take it from me - you will be pleased with the STR-DH130.

Pros: Great value, plenty of power, easy to use, lots of input flexibility, clean sound

Cons: Remote has a few too many buttons - better too many than not enough!

Written By John, West Des Moines, IA on Saturday, June 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

after a long absence from the world of stereo components (did the sound bar thing) we had missed having rich full music. For the price this is an excellent way back into that wonderful world. Clear sound in a 20 x 20' living room. I realize for the price to good value, but I didn't realize that would miss HD radio. I may try and find a fix for that.

Pros: Great sound at a value price

Cons: those darn dark buttons are near impossible to see without either a mini light or decent natural lighting! but, once remotes been programmed who cares?!

Decent, though Plain Vanilla Receiver

Written By CinemaPete, New York City on Thursday, June 26, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a straight forward stereo receiver without the surround sound capability. Crutchfield's sale price for this SONY receiver was irresistible so I purchased. In NYC FM reception is tough, but this receiver get high marks for pulling in many stations. Audio quality is quite good: frequency range is natural sounding without any prominence in a particular range of the audio spectrum. It claims to have 20 Hz to 20 Khz bandwidth, but I can't attest to it's low frequency performance because the speakers I have connected are not the greatest at the low end of the spectrum. But for my goals this receiver does the job very well and produces a very natural, balanced and overall listenable sound even at high levels. For the price, and if you don't need or want surround, this is a very listenable stereo receiver.

Cons: None so far.

Good 2 channel reciever

Written By Andrew, Fort Wayne, IN on Thursday, June 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price this unit can't be beat for a standard 2-channel system. Recommend this highly for multiroom speaker system used in conjunction with a push button speaker selector. Has sufficient output without using an amp.

Pros: For the price good 2 channel receiver with good output.

Cons: Interface with IPod or other like device is stereo but still sounds good. Just be careful when inserting stereo 2.5mm connection to ipod. Insert the connection then change inputs to where you made your connection.

Great Unit For My Needs

Written By Scott, Dallas, TX on Monday, June 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit is exactly what I expected, and maybe a little bit more. It is a very simple "Old School" receiver/amp, but it gives all the power I need. My main use for this unit is to use at the beach. We rock the beach with home stereo equipment powered by a generator. This amp gave me all the power I needed, even in a constant 20 mph wind. I had to max out the power because of the wind, but it did the job. 90 watts is all I will ever need! Very low distortion.

Pros: Very low distortion. Easy to use. Always use the "Portable" input when using iPhone, iPad, etc. for playing music. Using the other inputs didn't work as well. The Portable input requires a 3.5mm audio cable, not included.

Cons: None really. Great price and it does the job. It's a very simple unit. The FM antenna was pretty weak, so I bought a better one.

Looked for a plain receiver with capability of driving two sets of 8 ohm speakers at the same time.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit replaced a 42 yr. old Sony STR-6045 receiver that gave me good service for a very long time. I like this new one, as it has quite a bit more power, and a "cleaner" sound. Very nice machine for the price. Volume control is a bit weird compared to my old unit, as it's stiffer feeling, and you need to turn it a lot further to get significant change in the volume. Other than that, I really am very satisfied. Good value in a basic stereo receiver!

Pros: Very good, clean sound Plenty of power Easy to use Reasonable cost

Cons: Speaker connections seem a bit cheesy FM antenna is just a piece of wire, but works OK

I purchased this primarily to drive my speaker system from the output on my new Samsung TV, which disables the mute/volume controls when speakers are set to external (Stupid). Anyway, the Sony STR-DH130 works perfectly with great sound quality and provides plenty of volume range and mute control available through the remote control. The only feature I miss is the ability to 'balance' the volume from left and right speakers (unless I missed something). My external speakers are self powered with separate volume controls, so not having balance control on the Sony is not an issue, just something I expected. It solves my problem with a super good price.

Pros: Good power to drive speakers, sensitive with good range volume control, well designed remote.

Cons: No balance control of left and right speakers

Great product for the price. Good sound quality, nice looking. As always Sony exceeds expectations. Fast shipping. Excellent Technical support. Great customer service people. Very professional. Price dropped after purchase and they refunded the difference with one quick phone call. I love dealing with Crutchfield.

Pros: best place to buy electronice

Cons: Never had a problem with Crutchfield.

Basic unit but good value

A pretty basic unit but for the price not a bad deal. Nothing at all fancy here so if you are looking for anything special look elsewhere. The AM antenna connection is unusual -- OK if you want to use the supplied loop, but not so convenient if you need a different antenna. The layout of the remote is poor, not as well organized as it should be. Overall audio performance is decent for the price.

Pros: Good price, fairly attractive unit.

Cons: Poor remote control layout. Atypical AM antenna connection.

Great stereo. I used in a new nook over my fridge behind a flat screen TV to power two ceiling speakers. Great sound. Besides TV, we simply like listening to the radio.

"Everything I expected"

This Receiver is everything I was trying to find without breaking the bank. I went through two others from another retailer that were great till they went out within a month. I have a Sony 300 disc player and four Sony large bookshelf speakers and it has plenty of power and sounds really great. Was well worth it.

Pros: Easy layout and functions

Cons: Not as loud with my satellite radio.

Great product for the value! I bought it to power four speakers two pioneers with a eight inch woofer that are about 40 years old and two newer bookshelf speakers in my bedroom. Powers all of that great! The Sony quality is evident in the build quality and finish. Love the remote I was using a 30 year old receiver before this and I expect this one to last another 30 years.

Pros: Quality, Price, Value, Build Quality, Finish, & A name brand you can trust

Cons: Nothing could not be better

As another reviewer said " Good receiver for a garage or patio". The sound quality is only fair at best, but at this price point you cannot expect much more. It works as advertised.

Pros: Simple 2 Channel Reciever

Cons: None

Wonderful stereo receiver

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For $150 it's perfect. Plenty of power. I use it to drive two pair of outdoor Yamaha speakers. The only complaint that I have it that you cannot change between the two pair using the remote control. I have a pair on channel A on one deck and a pair on channel B on another deck. I have to go to the receiver and manually switch between channels. You can have both channels on at the same time too, but again, it has to be changed at the receiver.

Pros: Bang for the buck

Cons: Cannot switch between speaker channels on the remote

Extra FM receiver
