Our take on the Sony STR-DH510

by Dave Bar
Sony

Receivers: Your ticket to sensational sound

Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more — it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.

Add high-impact excitement and realistic, wraparound sound to all of your movies, TV shows, music, and video games. Sony's STR-DH510 can drive five home theater speakers for engaging surround sound with every entertainment source in your system. Three 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs let you hook up your best high-def components to enjoy easy switching along with crystal-clear digital picture and sound. The 'DH510's Audio Return Channel function even allows audio signals to be sent from your compatible HDTV's tuner back to the receiver via HDMI — eliminating the need for extra cables.

    Audio Features

    Surround Modes: The Sony STR-DH510 home theater receiver incorporates a wide variety of surround modes to bring you maximum enjoyment from your audio and video software. The surround modes include:

    • Dolby Digital (5.1): Dolby Digital is a 5.1 multi-channel digital surround format which consists of front (left/right), center, surround (left/right) and sub-woofer channels.
    • DTS: DTS Digital Surround is a 5.1 multi-channel digital surround sound format used for both commercial/theatrical and consumer grade applications.
    • Dolby Pro Logic: Center and mono surround information is matrixed into two stereo channels. When reproduced, audio is decoded and output in 4 channel surround sound.
    • Dolby Pro Logic II (Movie and Music): Dolby Pro Logic II technology processes any high quality stereo (two-channel) movie and music audio into five playback channels of full-bandwidth surround sound. A matrix surround decoding technology, Dolby Pro Logic II detects the directional cues that occur naturally in stereo content and uses these elements to create a five-channel surround sound playback experience. You can choose from the following Dolby Pro Logic II formats - Movie or Music
    • Digital Cinema Sound (DCS): Digital Cinema Sound is the concept name of the surround technology for home theater developed by Sony. DCS uses the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) technology to reproduce the sound characteristics of an actual cinema cutting studio in Hollywood. When played at home, DCS will create a powerful theater effect that mimics the artistic combination of sound and action as envisioned by the movie director. The receiver features Movie and Music DCS soundfields:
      • Movie Mode: Movie mode recreates a movie theater experience:
        • Cinema Studio EX A: reproduces the sound characteristics of the Sony Pictures Entertainment "Cary Grant Theater" cinema production studio, great for watching most any type of movie
        • Cinema Studio EX B: reproduces the sound characteristics of the Sony Pictures Entertainment "Kim Novak Theater" cinema production studio, ideal for watching science fiction or action movies with lots of sound effects
        • Cinema Studio EX C: reproduces the sound characteristics of the Sony Pictures Entertainment scoring stage, ideal for watching musicals or films where orchestra music is featured in the soundtrack
        • V. Multi Dimension: creates multiple virtual speakers from a single pair of actual surround speakers
      • Music Mode: Music mode recreates a live music experience:
        • Hall: reproduces the acoustics of a classical concert hall
        • Jazz Club: reproduces the acoustics of a jazz club
        • Live Concert: reproduces the acoustics of a 300-seat live concert house
        • Stadium: reproduces the feeling of a large open-air stadium
        • Sports: reproduces the feeling of sports broadcasting
        • Portable: reproduces a clearer sound image from your portable audio device; ideal for MP3 and other compressed music
    • 2-Channel Sound Mode: You can switch the output sound to 2-channel sound regardless of the recording formats of the software you are using, the playback component connected, or the soundfield settings of the receiver. The AV receiver offers two 2-channel audio modes.
      • Two Channel Stereo Mode: The 2 channel button sets the receiver to power only the front left and right speakers, no surround and no subwoofer. Two-channel sources bypass the sound field processing and multi-channel sources are down-mixed to 2 channels.
      • Analog Direct: The direct feature amplifies the source without any processing, only the volume and front speaker balance adjustments are active.
    • Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.) Mode: The Auto Format Direct (A.F.D.) mode allows you to listen to high fidelity sound and select the decoding mode for listening to a 2-channel stereo sound as multi-channel. You can set the A.F.D. mode to Auto or Multi Stereo.
      • A.F.D. Auto: Presets the sound as it was recorded/encoded without adding any surround effects.
      • Multi Stereo: Outputs 2-channel left/right signals from all speakers.
    • Headphone Sound Fields: When headphones are connected, you can select the following sound fields:
      • Headphone 2CH: outputs the sound in stereo, 2-channel sources bypass the sound field processing, multi-channel surround formats are downmixed to 2 channels
      • Headphone Direct: outputs analog signals with no sound field or tone processing

    Effect Level: The Effect Level feature lets you adjust the presence of the surround effect for soundfields selected with the Movie or Music mode or Headphone Theater mode. You can choose from Minimum effect, Standard effect or Maximum effect.

    Speaker Setup: The Speaker Setup menu allows you to set the size, distance from your seating position, and location of the speakers connected to the receiver. The following adjustments are available:

    • Speaker Pattern: 3/2.1, 3/2, 2/2.1, 2/2, 3/0.1, 3/0, 2/0.1, 2/0
    • Speaker Size: Front, Center, and Surround (Large or Small)
    • Speaker Distance: Front, Center, Surround, and Subwoofer (3 to 23 feet, in 1 foot steps)
    • Crossover Frequency: Sets crossover point for speakers set to small (40 to 200 Hz, in 10 Hz steps).
    • Level Adjustment: The receiver employs a test tone with a frequency centered at 800Hz which allows you to adjust the speaker levels and balance while listening to the audible tone from your listening position. You can adjust the level of the front left/right speakers from -10 dB to +10 dB, in 0.5 dB steps. For all other speakers and the subwoofer, you can adjust the level from -20 dB to +10 dB, in 0.5 dB steps.

    Equalizer: You can adjust the tonal quality (bass and treble level) of the front speakers from -6dB to +6dB, in 1dB steps.

    Dynamic Range Compressor: This feature allows you to compress the dynamic range of the sound track. You can select standard or maximum compression, or off (only works with Dolby Digital sources).

    Night Mode: This function allows you to retain a theater like environment at low volume levels. When watching a movie late at night, you will still be able to hear the dialog clear even at a low volume level.

    Speaker Outputs: The receiver is equipped with binding post speaker terminals for the front channel speakers and spring clip terminals for the surround an center channel speakers.

    Digital Inputs: The receiver has two optical digital inputs and one coaxial digital inputs. You can choose auto decoding or PCM for the digital audio inputs. Auto will decode the signal in its original form (Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM, etc), PCM decodes the signal to 2-channel.

    Input Mode: When you connect components to both digital and analog audio input jacks on the receive, you can fix the audio input mode to either of them, or switch from one to the other, depending on the type of material you intend to watch.

    AM/FM Tuner: The STR-DH510 has 30 presets each for AM and FM for a total of 60. In addition to preset and auto tuning, stations can be tuned directly by frequency. Each preset station can be given an 8 character name.

    Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Video Features

    5 HD Inputs: The Sony STR-DH510 is equipped with five HD inputs. Three HDMI inputs (up to 1080/24p capable) let you connect a high-definition satellite receiver, Blu-ray Disc player, and game system for high definition video and audio. Two component inputs (1080/60i capable) provide added HD-capable connectivity and versatility.

    • HDMI: The receiver is equipped with three HDMI (ver.1.3) inputs for connecting HDMI-equipped audio/video components. All three HDMI inputs are capable of carrying uncompressed digital audio and video up to 1080p. There is also an HDMI (v.1.4) output which supports the ARC function that feeds audio/video signals to an HDTV.
    • HD Component Video: This unit features 2 component video inputs and a component video monitor output. These jacks feature an 80 MHz bandwidth, making them capable of passing high-definition video signals.

    Note: The receiver does not convert video signals. It can only output the same type of signals that it receives. The receiver is capable of receiving and sending HDMI, Component Video, and Composite Video signals. There are no S-Video jacks.

    HDMI Standby Pass-Through: The HDMI Standby Pass-Through feature conveniently allows you to access all your HDMI connected devices without having to power on the receiver .

    24p True Cinema Mode: The 24p True Cinema Mode allows you to watch movies at their native frame rate 24p format (24 frames per second) when paired with a 24p playback device like a Blu-ray Disc Player.

    x.v.Color: The AV receiver supports x.v.Color, offering a wider color range than the current broadcast standard. For the x.v.Color feature to be useful, the entire video production chain must be compatible (camera-editing-format-player-display).

    Deep Color: The Sony receiver also supports Deep Color which allows the color depth of video signals passing through HDMI to be raised. The number of colors that could be expressed by 1 pixel was 24 bits (16,777,216 colors) with a standard HDMI jack. However, the number of colors which can be expressed by 1 pixel is 36 bits with a Deep Color enabled HDMI jack. Since the gradation of the depth of a color can be expressed more finely with more bits, continuous color changes can be more smoothly expressed.  For the Deep Color feature to be useful, the entire video production chain must be compatible (camera-editing-format-player-display).

    Note: x.v. Color and Deep Color technology are supported only when source product, HDMI cable, media and HDTV all support those features.

    A/V Sync: The audio output can be delayed so that the time gap between the audio output and the visual display is minimized. This is especially helpful when you are using a large LCD or plasma TV or a projection TV. When activated, the delay is fixed at 60 ms.

    Convenience Features

    Input Naming: You can enter a name of up to 8 characters for each of the receiver's inputs (except Tuner) and display the name on its display. This is convenient for labeling the jacks with the names of your connected components.

    Auto Standby: Auto Standby lets you set the receiver switch to standby mode automatically after 30 minutes when you do not operate the receiver or when there is no signal input to the receiver.

    Sleep Timer: The unit may be set to automatically turn off after 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.

    Dimmer: You can adjust the brightness of the display in 3 steps - Dim Max, Dim Mid, and Dim Off.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote: The supplied remote (RM-AAU071) is pre-coded to control this Sony receiver, Sony TVs, Sony CD players, Sony DVD players and recorders, and Sony Blu-ray disc players and recorders. You can also change the initial settings of the input buttons on the remote control to suit the components in your system.

    Bravia Theater Sync: Sony's Bravia Theater Sync feature allows you to easily manage select BRAVIA televisions and Sony HDMI audio and video components with a single remote. By connecting Sony components that are compatible with the HDMI Control function with a HDMI cable, operation is simplified in the following ways.

    • One-Touch-Play: When you playback a component such as a DVD/Blu-ray Disc Player, the receiver and the TV are turned on automatically and switch to the appropriate HDMI input.
    • System Audio Control: While watching TV, you can select to output the sound from the TV speaker or the speakers connected to the receiver.
    • System Power Off: When you turn off the TV, the receiver and connected components are also turned off simultaneously.
    • Theater Mode Sync: Allows you to switch the AV receiver's Theater mode from the receiver's, TV, or connected Blu-ray disc player's remote control, while pointing the remote toward your television.
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel) Function: If your TV is compatible with the Audio Return Channel (ARC) function, the television's sound will output from the speakers connected to this AV receiver via the receiver's HDMI TV Out connection.

    Optional Add-on Devices

    Optional iPod/iPhone Dock: The Sony TDM-iP50 Digital Media Port adapter (158TDMIP50, sold separately) for iPod/iPhone lets you enjoy your iPod/iPhone's audio, video, and photo content through your entertainment system by connecting the TDM-iP50 to the Sony audio/video receiver's Digital Media Port interface. For added convenience, the dock also charges your compatible iPod's battery. You can operate your iPod/iPhone by its own click-wheel or touch-screen, the control buttons of the Sony receiver, or the IR wireless remote control supplied with the Sony receiver.

    Very Happy After Some Set-Up Bugs

    Written By Peter, Luquillo, PR on Tuesday, April 19, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     

    Initial set-up constantly elicited a 'muting' message---I reset the box -- no luck; E- mailed Sony and got no reply (that seems standard practice now from must electronic giants).

    Then, thanks to Joel and Marty at Crutchfield's great tech support, we found that the Panasonic Viera 32" HDTV was sending conflicting messages to the Sony STR-DH510 via HDMI, and the Sony was essentially subordinating its circuitry to Viera.

    Once we disabled the Viera function on TV, the Sony played perfectly in all modes. The more I explore the features of the receiver, the happier I am. In addition, the confidence of having back-up from Crutchfield's Tech Support is an incalculable bonus.

    Great, simple, does the job

    Written By walt, Los Angeles on Saturday, April 02, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this on user reviews and price to be the hub of my home media-A/V tangle. Was easily able to hook it up to my old but loved Boston Acoustics speakers and was glad to see it had an optical digital sound input direct from my flat panel TV. The remote works well.
    THE BEST:
    One thing I really appreciate about the unit is that it can be controlled from the front panel easily via just a few buttons and the two main knobs. It is a very simple and smart interface and a welcome relief from some units that have 1000 buttons and switches on the front panel.

    Excellent Sound-Great Value

    Written By BillC, Livingston, MT on Thursday, March 24, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great sound and very easy and fast hook up. I have a older HD set with only one
    HDMI input. New BluRay and DirecTV HD receiver go through the DH-510 with the
    HDMI to the TV. DirecTV tech suggested using the optical audio connection from
    the DirecTV receiver as well as the HDMI for true surround-sound. Easy
    programing with a Harmony 700. Great value.

    Another Great SONY Product

    Written By RDF, Greer, SC on Monday, March 21, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Receiver arrived within a couple of days in excellent shape and double packaged. It was easy to set up to my large screen Plasma TV and blue ray and Directv inputs. Good selection of inputs, well layed out front and sounds great connected to my older Sony speaker system. Well worth the money and performs much better than its price tag.

    Works great with Bravia LCD/LED and PS3

    Written By Paul L, Montgomery, AL on Friday, March 11, 2011
     
    Got it, hooked it up with no fuss to Bravia and PS3, using 2 HDMI cables. Set receiver's HDMI setting to auto and voila, sound from both sources with no extra cabling, exactly what we were after. Working from a pair of Bose InterAudio speakers provides great sound, especially from BD movies and PS3 games.
    Highly recommend especially if you have an all Sony system (and I haven't always been a big fan of Sony products in the past).

    Great Reciever for the Money

    Written By Bill G., Spring Grove, PA on Thursday, February 10, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this reciever to replace the reciever that came with a Sony home theatre in a box
    reciever bought about 8 years ago. The reciever was a piece of cake to set up. I have
    everything hooked up via Component Video (RGB), as the Sony Plasma it is hooked up
    to does NOT have HDMI. I hooked up the comcast cable box via Component Video and
    Optical Sound. I also hooked up a Sony DVD player via Component Video and Coax
    Sound. This set up took me all of 10 minutes (That included neatly zip tying the wires). I
    didn't have to fiddle with the sound fields, it did that for me.

    All in all a great reciever for the money.

    Sony STR-DH510

    Written By Dennis F., Poughkeepsie, NY on Saturday, February 05, 2011
     
    I am a long time Sony customer so it was logical I would purchase another one after the
    last Sony receiver lost its audio after 10 of so years frequent use. ( I had teenage boys
    and, I liked my rock and roll LOUD!- so it got a workout) Would I have liked to have spent
    triple that on a similar high end unit; yes.
    But why spend that amount when you are going to want new technology in 5 years or so
    anyway?
    The only dislike i can find in the short time I have used it is the scan feature for the radio-
    it tends to scan past the station you want and you have to back up, go forward, go back,
    etc., until you get the station -TOO Sensitive!
    Other than that, great receiver for the price!

    My AM/FM Tuner

    Written By Barry W, Greensboro, NC on Saturday, February 05, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Had an older Kenwood component stereo with 6 CD player and blown reciever. Searched for
    replacement stereo with multi CD player. Hard to find for less than $500. This Sony was
    compatible with old Kenwood CD player for significantly less money. In addition to AM/FM it
    can accommodate ipod and other components such as TV. Has plenty of power and great
    Sony reputation.

    already had in place. Hooking it up was not as straightforward as expected and after 2 hours
    on the phone with tech support(Crutchfield was great!), I never was able to get the HDMI
    hookups to work. I resorted to component/ digital optical hookup and everything works fine.
    Kinda a bummer that the HDMI failed me. The remote is also a nightmare- don't even use it.
    Therefore, this purchase only get a mediocre rating from me. On the up side, the sound
    choices are great and the surround sound is awesome. Just hope it lasts as long as it's Sony
    predecessor.

    Great for Price & Value

    I have had this Digital Audio/Video Control Center for about 4 weeks. Has great sound and hooked up to all HDMI cables is a plus. Replaced a 10 yr. old pioneer. It is a task to get set up. It is a basic unit so forget all bells and whistles. You do have to manually set sound fields on non Dolby Digital 5.1 channels. Once set it will remember them (simulated 5.1). It is a great buy. Won't decode some BD disks so beware of that.

    I own a Samsung which I bought locally and extra warranty. I've had it in 4 times because sub doesn't work and remote won't communicate all the time. very frustrated. bought this unit and love it. better sound, but a little hard to get the options and features figured out but great otherwise.
