Budget- and feature-friendly home theater receiver

Seven channels of power, HDMI connectivity, built-in Bluetooth, an easy-to-use on-screen guide. Seems like it wasn't that long ago when you had to pay a healthy premium to get all those features in a home theater receiver. But the Sony STR-DH750 delivers them all for a price that raises eyebrows for how low it is. When you connect your audio and video sources, along with up to seven surround speakers, you'll transform your ordinary TV room into a true home theater. Movies will come to life with explosive sound effects, while music will sound rich, full, and detailed. When you add your smartphone or tablet into the mix, you'll get even more value from this versatile component.

Wireless and wired connections for your smartphone

With more people using smartphones and tablets for music and movies, it's great to have a receiver that can take advantage of them. Bluetooth is the easiest way to do so, letting you wirelessly stream digital music files or audio from apps to the 'DH750. For wired use, there's a front-panel USB port for connecting an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod®. Plug it in and control it with the receiver's remote, so you can listen to your digital music collection while your device charges. For Android™ users, there's a front-panel MHL port. It's an HDMI input that can take video, photos, and music from compatible phones and tablets and show them on the big screen and play them through your speakers.

Customized sound

The seven-channel STR-DH750 offers several options for setting up your speakers. Connect seven speakers to enjoy immersive surround sound, either using the sixth and seventh channels as Surround Back or Front High speakers. Or, you can use those channels to power a second set of "B" speakers in an adjoining room, to spread out your music listening to the kitchen or dining room. Or, you can bi-amp your compatible front speakers for fuller, more detailed sound — perfect for stereo music listening. It's all a snap to configure using this receiver's on-screen guide and Digital Cinema Auto Calibration, which configures your speakers for optimum sound once you have them placed where you want them. Just plug in the included setup microphone and follow the on-screen instructions for sound tailored to your room and speakers.

    Excellent unit! Performs as expected. However, no operating manual. Only online. And most adjustments must be made via HDMI connection to the TV. Very inconvenient for the tech-challenged like myself!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Have just set it up, the lack of manual is an issues, at least should provide speaker set up, tuner set up, station set. Do not need the whole 250 page document but something with the most common set up instructions and concerns would be nice. Seems to have good sound, works well with TV, have not tried blue tooth yet.

    Pros: Sounds good, Was easy to hook up and synced with the TV immediately. Picture on TV is great. I would recommend this in the price range I got it (under $300).

    Cons: No documents, there should be a manual of at least the basics, speaker set up, calibration, Setting up stations on the tuner etc. Don't need the whole 250 page manual on line but the basics in print. Also dose not appear to have a way to set up external speaker system in another room. I could do that with my old Sony receiver about the same level as this one but, it had terminals for a B speaker that you could switch off or on.

    Great Receiver for the price

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My Pioneer surround sound receiver died after only three years of light use, and it had replaced an Onkyo which didn't last any longer. So I was looking for something which I hoped would be of better quality. After reading many reviews, I decided to give Sony a chance, at least their warranty is much better than my two previous duds.

    Pros: Does have AUX speaker outputs for another room.

    Cons: Doesn't have digital audio input from the TV

    I give the product, And Crutchfield 5 stars!! Receiver was shipped in a very timely manner, and arrived without incident. Although it took a little toying around with, once I got all my speakers connected, I was very happy with the clear, loud and crisp sound the receiver gave my system. If I need anything audio/ video wise, Crutchfield will be my first option!! I noticed some people rated it lower because it has no manual, but there is one online. And for me, it was like a new "toy", so I didn't mind taking the extra time to figure things out!! If you have Any technical aptitude, or even common sense, it is rather easy to configure!! Thanks Crutchfield for a very pleasant online purchasing experience!!

    Pros: Powerful receiver with many connection options

    Written By SoCal IE HT Fan, California on Sunday, July 26, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Like the title says, WOW! Very surprised how great this receiver sounds. It replaces a very problematic Onkyo 805 receiver that had tons of features I never liked or used. This, had what I liked and used in the Onkyo but works and sounds so much better! I was going to use this as a transition receiver, but I think I'll stick with it! Sounds so great, many people have noticed how much better it sounds than that horrible Onkyo. Couldn't be more happy, except if it was for free. :)

    Pros: Great features you actually use, easy and simple set up and surprising excellent sound. Just a fantastic sounding, simple, easy to use, "meat and 'taters" receiver.

    Cons: Wasn't free.

    Crisp sound

    Written By Antonio, Puerto Rico on Wednesday, July 15, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just upgraded to the STR-DH750 from an older Sony 7.1 receiver, and right out of the box I can hear the difference. Standard setup (for the non-audiophile like myself) is fairly easy and straightforward. I have a 2010-ish Sony 46" TV and a PS3, and speakers are Polk. As soon as I tested it with T2, I could hear the "smaller," more subtle details of the soundtrack much clearer and crisper. Still haven't tested the Bluetooth functionality properly, though set up and use was also very simple. In all, great bang for the buck!

    Pros: - Easy setup - BT connectivity for iPhone - Nice, crisps sounds

    Cons: - The display is smaller and has less detail than some older-model Sony receivers

    Can you hear it now!

    Written By Gary, Salt Lake City, Utah on Tuesday, March 10, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Sony STR-DH750 receiver has exceeded my expectations. Matched up with the Polk 350's and the P-111 'woofer", It is a great sounding system; A great value for the $$.

    Pros: Service, Service, Service! The Crutchfield personalized service is the BEST I have ever encountered. Very knowledgeable, personable and answered all my questions. Companies and customer servers everywhere should emulate their performance.

    Cons: Although not Crutchfield's fault and probably an indication of my old age, I would prefer a hard copy instruction/specification manual to reference.

    Great price, super quality and the typical Sony performance. Good buy!

    Pros: Sounds super! Good clarity. Really compliments my Bose system.

    Cons: No directions accompanied the receiver, which I thought was very odd. A menu of set up directions should have been included and at very least, a flow chart of features and access to them. Also, the menu "read out" is terribly small and impossible to see from a distance of ten feet or more.

    Totally worth the Money

    Written By pbike908, Boulder, CO on Tuesday, January 13, 2015

    Totally worth the sale price -- if you can get it on sale. Very simple to set up. Nice simple remote with big buttons. Menus display on TV -- in fact the receiver is outside my media room and I have no problems operating the unit from an adjoining room. More than adequate sound performance for an average size room, and I have low end speakers which are just fine!!! If you don't need built in WIFI, internet apps, or Airplay, a solid choice. I decided on this receiver because reviews show that it rarely cooks itself with heat related issues which I understand to be the bane of AV receivers. We'll see how long it lasts. Good Bluetooth as well.

    Pros: Really easy to set up. I didn't find lack of manual to be troubling. In fact, I didn't even need to go online to find any instructions. IOS App is nice. Nice simple remote and TV menu system is nice.

    Cons: No remote control backlight (not a deal breaker) HDMI ports are kind of close together, so I had to move around the Amazon Firestick so that it would fit next to an HDMI cable. The form factor of HDMI connectors may vary so your experience may be different. I was able to configure it so that I could use all HDMI ports.

    Very pleased with this tuner. It has a lot more options than I'm using, however, I will add to it in due time. Setting up the stations using the tv screen is a bit complicated, however it works.

    Cons: I think the speaker connections could be better. Plug-in attachments are ok, however, hard wiring is not a simple matter. Getting the wires in the slot and tightening them down is not a simple matter

    Good receiver if you already have Sony equipment

    Written By JBrown, Texas on Sunday, January 04, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this to replace an older Sony receiver that was lacking a few features I needed, such as bi-amp and hdmi passthrough. If you have a compatible Sony TV, the receiver will power on with the TV, and the TV remote will control the receiver volume. I have this receiver bi-amped to a pair of Polk TSi400 speakers, and the power is incredible. The bluetooth and USB port are very nice and convenient. I give it 5 stars because it does everything I want it to very well, even though there is room for improvement. At this price (I got it on sale), I consider it a great value.

    Pros: Easy setup, good sound, perfect for use with other Sony equipment.

    Cons: Needs TV in order to set up correctly, on screen menu is very unimpressive in style (just white block letters on black background).

    Great connectivity to Bluetooth devices!

    Pros: Easy to connect.

    Forget it unless you use with a TV

    Written By BL80602, Colorado on Sunday, November 30, 2014

    Can't give a good review because I wanted to use this in the shop as a receiver and it can not be used without a TV and surround sound. The setup is only available with a TV and if the power goes out for 30 minutes and will default back to a 5.1 surround and leave you without a shop stereo. Of course, nobody at Sony understands this at all.

    Pros: It's black to match other stuff.

    Cons: You MUST have a TV and surround sound to operate at all.

    Pros: Clear clean power. Much better than my old.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was looking for a receiver to replace my 10+ year old Pioneer. Took a chance on this Sony STR--DH750 because it had what I wanted - Bluetooth, 4K/3D pass thru, power per channel and 7.2 ability. I didn't need Airplay, WI-FI or additional zone. Got it on sale for a great price and free fast shipping, thanks Crutchfield. Easy setup. At first I was disappointed with the sound - I like my music and movies loud and with deep bass, which my Pioneer did well with my Pioneer speakers and Boston sub. But after some audio setting adjustments, this baby cranks! Love the on screen display, the auto turn on and volume control when I use my Bluetooth from my S4. It also automatically turns off my Sony tv speakers and uses only my surround sound speakers when I turn it on - after using just the pass thru. Overall, I am quite happy. I will wait and see about its reliability and durability - hopefully it will last awhile.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    Written By SSound, Illinois on Wednesday, September 03, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I upgraded from a previous Sony 6.1 system. Sounds great so far. Audio portion of setup was sweet with the "auto" setup using the included microphone. I took one star off because of the speaker hookups. Oh My Gosh... talk about a pain in the !@#!. It took me about an hour to hook up my seven speakers. I think more space in between the thumb screws would help a lot. Whatever happened to press the plastic tab, insert the speaker wire, done. I'm guessing that the tab type of connection doesn't work with "higher end" receivers? Any how, I still have to figure out the sound "options" and figure out how to know that what I am watching / listening to is coming out at 7.1.

    Pros: Sounds great.

    Cons: Speaker connections too close together. Emits a noticeable hum when powered on, idol, and speakers are not hooked up or "off".

    Superior sound at a great price!

    Written By Chuck A., Boone, CO on Wednesday, August 27, 2014

    I've had this receiver for about a year now and I STILL marvel about the rich and luxurious sounds produced. My mother can't listen to her instrumental satellite radio station enough. I even became a fan. Setup is fairly simple and I enjoy television and movies like never before! The surround sound is AWESOME!

    Assignable 7-Channel Amplifier: The Sony STR-DH750 AV receiver is equipped with a 7-channel amplifier rated at 90 watts (into 6-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.09% THD, driving 2 channels). The AV receiver's Surround Back/Front Height amplifier channels can be configured to accommodate your type of home theater setup.

    • Surround Back: Allows you to enjoy high-fidelity reproduction of Dolby Digital TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD (High-Resolution Audio or Master Audio) with 7.1 channel surround, using the Surround Back speaker channels.
    • Front Height: You can enjoy vertical sound effects if you connect two additional Front-Height speakers; no Surround Back speakers in this configuration.
    • B-Speakers: If you are only connecting a 5.1ch speaker system, you can use the Surround Back/Front Height amp channels as a Speaker B output, allowing you to place a pair of speakers in another room of the house. Speaker B can be played at the same time of Speaker A, or by itself. Speaker B uses the same volume control and source input as Speaker A.
    • Front Bi-Amp: If you are not using the Surround Back/Front Height at all, you can connect them to your front speakers using a bi-amplifier connection (if applicable). This provides even better sound quality from your front speakers. Your home theater setup will be limited to 5.1ch.

    Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC): The Sony STR-DH750 is equipped with Digital Cinema Auto Calibration Technology which uses the included microphone to automatically check the speaker connections, adjust the speaker output levels, calculate the distance from each speaker to the listening position, and distinguish frequency characteristics of each speaker. The microphone has an 15' cord attached that plugs into the microphone input on front of the receiver. You can also choose to manually adjust the AV receiver's speaker settings.

    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.

    Dolby Digital/DTS/Dolby Pro Logic: The Sony STR-DH750 AV receiver features Dolby Digital and DTS-HD decoding, as well as offers Dolby Pro Logic audio processing.

    Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the A/V preamplifier via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the AV receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.
    Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the A/V preamplifier via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the AV receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.

    HD Digital Cinema Sound (HD D.C.S): HD Digital Cinema Sound (HD-D.C.S.) is Sony's new innovative home theater technology using the latest acoustic and digital signal processing technologies. It is based on precise response measurement data of a mastering studio. With this mode, you are able to enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies at home with not only the high quality of sound, but also the best sound ambience, just as the movie's sound engineer intended in the mastering process.

    • For Movies:
      • Dynamic: This setting is suitable for an environment which is reverberant but lacks a spacious feel (where sound absorption is not sufficient). It emphasizes the reflection of sound and reproduces the sound of a large, classic movie theater. This emphasizes the spacious feel of a dubbing theater and creates a unique acoustic field.
      • Theater: This setting is suitable for a general living room. It reproduces the reverberation of sound just like in a movie theater (dubbing theater). It is most appropriate for watching content recorded on a Blu-ray Disc when you want the atmosphere of a movie theater.
