About the Sony STR-DH190

Great stereo sound with Bluetooth® convenience

I grew up listening to records on my dad's two-channel rig, but I'm a big fan of adding a few modern conveniences to the classic setup.
Sony STR-DH190 stereo receiver with Bluetooth

The Sony STR-DH190 has Bluetooth® Standby, which lets you remotely activate the receiver and stream music from your paired smartphone.

Great stereo sound with Bluetooth® convenience

I grew up listening to records on my dad's two-channel rig, but I'm a big fan of adding a few modern conveniences to the classic setup.

The Sony STR-DH190 gives you 90 watts per channel to drive your speakers, and a phono input so you can listen to your turntable. It also includes Bluetooth so you can stream files from your paired smartphone, which is a nice touch.

Ready and waiting

The STR-DH190 offers a handy bit of technology known as Bluetooth Standby, which means you can activate the receiver with your phone without having to walk over and press a button on the front plate. You can fire it up and start streaming your favorite tunes without interrupting your daily routine.

Crutchfield customer from Evanston, IL on 8/28/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A nice low priced stereo receiver. I use this as a secondary small system (office). I have two criticisms. I do not like the spring clip speaker binders which are cheap. Second you are unable to hook up a more powerful FM antenna. The connection only allows for the supplied antenna to be used. If you are in a poor reception area you cannot use a powered or outdoor antenna to improve reception.

Pros: Price point, phono hook up, blue tooth.

Cons: Cheap speaker binding posts. Cannot use any other FM antenna if you need better reception.

This receiver replaced a 30+-year old Sony receiver. The Sony STR-DH190 provides everything I needed: Bluetooth for using wireless headphones and designated audio outlets for phono. The remote control is easy to use and allows one to adjust the bass and treble. The FM reception is not that great, but everything works well.

Basic receiver

Leslie E. from Toomsuba, MS on 5/12/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I needed a basic stereo receiver with bluetooth for my workshop. I researched several receivers and decided on the Sony STR-DH190. I placed my order with crutchfield and received it in two days. I paired the Sony with a pair of Polk tsi 200 speakers. It only took 10 minutes to hook up the speaker wires and power up the system. Bluetooth paired my phone to the receiver in just a few seconds. I am very pleased with the sound that this system is producing. It has far exceeded my expectation. Even though this is a basic receiver without all the bells and whistles it produces very good sound. This is exactly what I needed for my shop and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Pros: Relatively inexpensive. Bluetooth that works and has very good range. Great stereo sound.

Cons: None

Minimal Shortcomings Make For Solid Value

Pardero from Rock Springs, WY on 3/11/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This receiver is easy to operate via the remote control. The front panel suffers from the ubiquitous streamlined fashion, and it is difficult to find the buttons, let alone operate them. It has adequate power and clean sound. I really like the automatic startup with bluetooth, though some may not. Excellent bluetooth function. The volume and function knobs have a vague unpleasant feel. Fewer features than its non-bluetooth predecessor, as it is fairly spartan. I read many reviews all over the net, and the Sony is far more trouble-free than other companies' similar offerings. A good value for the money.

Pros: Good reputation for being trouble-free. Exceptional bluetooth.

Cons: Ponderous knobs and tiny controls on receiver.

Works beautifully with my old speakers of unknown impedance. Surprising how much better they sound. I love being able to wake the receiver up by Bluetooth from another room. I bought from Crutchfield because the 60-day return policy and available technical help were so much better than I could get elsewhere. As it happened I didn't need either, but the reduction in anxiety that gave me over my choice was a big deal.

Excellent features and value

P from Downers Grove, IL on 2/7/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After doing research for a basic stereo receiver I chose the Sony STR-DH190 due to the impressive list of features including the phono input, Bluetooth, and the higher wattage output versus other similar receivers. I have attached my recently restored turntable to the receiver as well as a CD player and the sound is just fantastic! I particularly enjoy the ability to activate the receiver via Bluetooth from my smartphone and immediately begin streaming music - a great feature! Overall the Sony STR-DH190 is an excellent value and I use it every day.

Pros: Dedicated phono input, multiple RCA inputs, Bluetooth, elegant interface, higher output wattage versus competitors, super value for the money

Cons: Lacking AM receiver, clumsy volume knob, spring-clip speaker connectors

Perfect starter unit for my 15yo daughter. Let's her connect her new turntable w/o a pre amp, other accessories, and most importantly her phone via Bluetooth. The remote is another godsend for her.

Pros: Reasonable price, features dedicated phono input, remote, Bluetooth

Cons: Volume knob requires a lot of turns to raise or lower volume.

LOTS OF POWER BUT IT SOUNDS AS INEXPENSIVE AS IT IS

William from Ft Wayne, IN on 2/1/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this unit expecting it to sound like my Sony STR-DH130. That unit has an 8 ohm minimum whereas the STR-DH190 has a 6 ohm minimum. I intended to purchase a pair of Elac F6.2 speakers to go with it. Unfortunately, though my STR-DH130 sounds borderline tinny, the STR-DH190 crossed that border. It is a very powerful unit--much more powerful than the STR-DH130, but the sound is not good. I'm afraid that it sounds about as cheap as it is priced. The designers also dimmed the display so that even at its brightest, it is difficult to read unless you are close to the unit. In addition, you have to go through an amp menu just to change the speaker balance settings. A couple of the reviews on Amazon stated that it has a rich sound. I wonder what they were comparing it to....

Pros: Stable at 6 ohms. Lots of power!

Cons: Sounds cheap.

Paul from Seminole, FL on 12/31/2018

Product and service are stellar. The Sony is a fine example of a $129. Receiver. Works great, does what it's supposed to. Just don't expect it to be something it isn't. I have an Outlaw RR2160. A superb stereo receiver. That is $799. Luckily the Sony is in the bedroom on my second system. It will be eventually replaced by the PS AUDIO Sprout integrated amp. The Sony will end up in my wife's Office with the Polk speakers. The Sprout will hopefully get the new PS AUDIO speakers when they come out next week. It will be with my Denon turntable and Grado cartridge. Looking forward to then. Will enjoy the Sony in the meantime and appreciate it for what it is. A very well thought out very low end receiver that is very ok. I'm going to listen to DSOTM to on vinyl and see how it does. Just listened to DSOTM. sounded VERY ok. Bluetooth works great. Get it for $129. Enjoy it for what it is. Just don't expect it to be something it isn't.

A Five-Star Value

James from Nevada, MO on 9/3/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

How does a person give a bargain receiver a five-star rating? When it gives the kind of value this one does! Is it perfect? No, but it's inexpensive. Does it put out 500W per channel? No, but it is rated for 90W into 8 Ohms. Does it have all the bells and whistles? No but it has a lot of cool features for the money. Is it machined from a solid chunk of aircraft-grade billet aluminum and house state-of-the-art component parts inside? No, but it looks nice and is well made...and lists for a great price delivered to your front door. That's why I gave it five stars.

Pros: Great feature set, good sound, nice looks, solid construction

Cons: Front fascia is a little cloudy looking in spots.

I purchased this receiver to replace a very old receiver and have found no improvement in sound quality.I guess that you get what you pay for as the price was very low. Also it will only take cheep thin speaker wire

Pros: Good price

Cons: Sound quality not so good

I was disappointed with the Sony STR-DH190. The bass is not as good as it must be for a product to play LPs. All controls have to be done with the remote control.

Pros: Fairly OK

Cons: Poor bass. All functions must be done with the remote control

Nice simple powerful clean unit.

Christopher from Bronx, NY on 6/6/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to power a bedroom system enough to have enough power for a full rich sound at lower volumes, and this did the trick. The blue tooth option allows for other sound sources. My only suggestion would have been for the unit to have a subwoofer input, however it has enough power to bring out the bass in bookshelf speakers (I use Klipsch R15M) for a small room. I would imagine that if you like a rounder more bass filled sound, elacs might do you better - or speakers of that type. The sound is as clean as the specs indicate provided you have speakers that will bring that out. I play CD's through this as well as an budget audio technica turntable and it all sounds very good. I would get it as a start up for a young adult or for a small apartment dweller just getting things set up audio - wise for music. This would work especially since many younger folks today have fallen in love with vinyl.

Pros: good clean powerful sound with blue tooth

Cons: No subwoofer input. Bass is good provided you have the right speakers.

This an upgrade from my 25 year old receiver. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of the old receiver and the sound is about the same. The Yamaha that I returned had a brilliance in the sound but it didn't have a phono input so I returned it If I didn't feel obligated to Crutchfield in the extremely wonderful way they handled my purchase, I would be tempted to put my old stereo back in service!!!

More than your money's worth

Fred from Cornelius, NC on 5/21/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was quite skeptical that anything this inexpensive could be halfway decent. And yet it is halfway decent, which is pretty remarkable given the price. I must be out of date, since I would have expected a receiver like this to cost twice as much. I wouldn't recommend this if you had a budget twice this price, but for what it costs, you more than get your money's worth.

Pros: Pretty great for the price

Cons: A budget piece with budget performane. Don't expect $400 performance here, and you won't be disappointed.

I am quite pleased with this receiver. It has the 2 channel power needed to drive two sets of speakers with high res audio.The phono gain (up to 6 db) feature works like a charm and adds the needed boost for proper turntable output. I am running a Technics 1200 MK2 with Ortofon cart, and it sounds great !!The tone levels are quite accurate and direct source is great for cd listening. For the price/value budget factor, I could not find (and I looked) a comparable product with the features this has. Highly recommend.

Pros: High wattage, phono input with separate gain control, high res audio, good price.

Cons: None !

Product Research

Audio Section
Built-in Bluetooth & FM Tuner
Remote & Convenience Features

Audio Section

Discrete Stereo Amplifier: The Sony STR-DH190's discrete stereo amplifier delivers high power and quality sound. It is rated at 90 watt x 2-channel (into 8, @ 20-20kHz, with THD 0.0%). Every component in the STR-DH190 has been designed for detail and clarity.

  • Reinforced Chassis: A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces transmitted vibration from speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.
  • Rigid Construction: Rigid parts hold the heat sink in place, reducing transmitted vibration from speaker sound pressure.
  • Optimal Layout: The phono amplifier and transformer are positioned optimally to minimize interference from the magnetic field.
  • Large Capacity Power Transformer: The stereo receiver utilizes a large capacity power transformer built for clarity. 

Tone Control + Pure Direct Mode: The Sony STR-DH190 features independent Bass and Treble controls (-10 to +10 dB), so you can adjust the tonal quality of your connected speakers. Pure Direct Mode bypasses the Tone controls and turns off the front-panel display, allowing you to enjoy higher-fidelity sound from all inputs.

Analog Inputs: The Sony STR-DH190 has six analog audio inputs, including a Phono MM input and a front-panel Aux input. You can give each input a custom name (up to 8 characters) for easy identification.

  • Phono MM Input: The Phono MM input lets you connect your turntable with a MM cartridge so you can enjoy your vinyl record collection through the receiver.
  • Front-Panel Aux: A front-panel 3.5mm Aux input lets you easily connect a portable music player to the stereo receiver.
Note: This receiver is not equipped with any digital audio inputs or video inputs.

Analog Outputs: The STR-DH190 is outfitted with A/B speaker outputs, a stereo analog audio output, and a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack.

  • A/B Speaker Outputs: The STR-DH190's A/B speaker outputs lets you connect up to two pair of speakers. You can easily switch between A or B speakers, or use both speakers together and have the same music source playing through two pair of speakers.  The A/B speaker outputs are wired internally in parallel. The stereo amplifier supports 6Ω-16Ω speakers using A or B speaker outputs, and 12-16Ω using both A & B speaker outputs. The A/B speaker outputs consist of spring-clip terminals that will accept connection of bare speaker wire (up to 12AWG) and pin-connectors.
  • Stereo Analog Out: The stereo analog output allows you to connect a recording device for recording of any of the receiver's analog audio inputs. Tone control does not affect the signal output of the stereo analog record output.
  • 1/4" Headphone Jack: The receiver features a 1/4" headphone jack for private listening. When headphones are plugged into this output, the sound from the speakers is muted.

Volume Range: The Sony stereo receiver has a volume range of 1 (Min) to 73 (Max).

Built-in Bluetooth & FM Tuner

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Sony STR-DH190 features built-in Bluetooth 4.2 with support for A2DP 1.2 and AVRCP 1.6. You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content from your Bluetooth source device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) to the stereo receiver. You can pair multiple devices with the Sony STR-DH190, but only one can be connected and used for playback at a time. The STR-DH190 has a wireless Bluetooth range of approximately 98.4'.

  • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the STR-DH190 offers support of AAC.  By supporting AAC, the stereo receiver offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
  • Playback Control: You'll be able to control Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Stop functions from the included IR remote. Advanced music browsing will still need to be handled from your Bluetooth source device.
  • Bluetooth Standby: With Bluetooth Standby, you can even turn the stereo receiver on from your paired smartphone or tablet.
Note: The STR-DH190 does not display song/artist/album information; continue to use your Bluetooth source device's screen to view song/artist info.

FM Tuner: The Sony STR-DH190 stereo receiver is equipped with a built-in FM tuner with 30 digital presets, station naming (up to 8 characters), and auto tuning. You can switch between Stereo & Mono mode. An FM wire antenna is included. This receiver is not equipped with an AM tuner.

Remote & Convenience Features

IR Remote : The supplied IR remote provides wireless operation of the Sony STR-DH190 stereo receiver. It also offers basic playback control for your connected Bluetooth audio streaming device.

Sleep Timer: The receiver can be set to turn off automatically after a specified time (30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.)

Auto Standby: This energy saving features enables the receiver to set to automatically switch to standby mode if it is not in use or no audio signal is sent to it for 20 minutes.

[ Shaman  Jun 18, 2019 ]

The output is line level. It is not in circuit with the volume control so unless you connect it to an amp with a volume control, it would not be wise to connect it to an amp. It would be full volume all the time!

Why do you represent this as .09% THD when the Sony website has it as 1% THD?
[ Bradley  Jan 28, 2019 ]

A
Sony provides both ratings under the "Specifications" section of the owner's manual (Page 37): Minimum RMS Output Power (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, THD 0.09%) 90 W + 90 W Stereo Mode Output Power (8 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 1%) 100 W + 100 W We use the full-bandwidth (20-20,000Hz) rating. I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

No i don't believe so
[ Matt  Dec 12, 2018 ]

No. The system does not have a USB port to support a thumb drive. However, it does support Bluetooth which I use to interface with my phone and tablet for MP3 and streaming.

I own this receiver and like to stream Spotify, etc from my Dell aio desktop. I have been told that I should add an external DAC. My PC has Bluetooth so does that mean I need a Bluetooth DAC too? Thanks! Al

equipped. I would conclude then that the probable issue is coming from your computer - not the receiver. If it is a matter just sounding better, then I would just see for myself if better is indeed better.

This receiver is prepared to accept external blue tooth access sources so I see no reason why you woud NEED an external DAC. If you were advised to have an external DAC to have it sound better, then what I would do is try to connect your computer without one and see what happens. If it does not work at all, then I would consult with Dell, because the receiver is blue tooth ew

The STR-DH190 has a wireless Bluetooth range of approximately 98.4'. You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the receiver's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. I hope that helps My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

Q
Can this receiver be paired with two wireless speakers for a stereo effect? Looking to drive two wireless speakers only -- no wired speakers. (Obviously without causing any damage to the receiver by having no wired speakers)

The bluetooth function of this receiver is for "receiving" only and will not transmit to wireless speakers. If your wireless speakers include a transmitter I would expect that it will hook up to the speaker output of the receiver.

Q
Scouring the manual was futile. What is the thickest gauge speaker wire that the holes in the spring clip speaker connectors on the rear panel will accept? I would want to use 14 gauge wire to connect 6 ohm speakers to the STR-DH190 receiver, if possible, but would not want the holes in the spring clip connectors to be too small for 14 gauge wire to fit. In that case, and only 16 gauge or thinner wire will fit, I will need to look for only 8 ohm or higher impedence speakers. Thanks.

I just hooked up speakers using 14ga wire with no difficulty.
[ jeremy  Apr 21, 2019 ]
A
I think 14 gauge wire will be a tight fit. I ended up putting straight pin connectors on my speaker wires and that helped a lot. The spring clip connector opening is small.
[ jmf  May 29, 2018 ]
A
I'm not for sure but I think it will take 14 guage wires.

There is no "Bluetooth Volume Control," Bluetooth is for pairing this unit with other Bluetooth playback devices such as MP3 players, smartphones , computers, etc. The Remote Control has up and down volume buttons.
[ Paul  May 20, 2018 ]

Yes, I control the volume from my phone when using Spotify, etc.
[ JOHN  May 20, 2018 ]

Yes - I'm using an iPhone X and it works great. Pairs quickly and the phone volume controls the receiver.
[ Mike  May 20, 2018 ]

Yes. Can control using smart phone volume keys, Sony remote and volume control on the receiver.

The Sony STR-DH190 dose have built-in Bluetooth for streaming wirelessly from Bluetooth devices so, yes, you can pair the Bluetooth from your Echo Dot. I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan
[ Ryan  Apr 28, 2018 ]  Staff
A
I don't know. It paired easily via Bluetooth with my iPhone, so if the Amazon Dot is Bluetooth compatible I don't know why it would not work.
