Terrific Receiver
I received this as a Christmas gift - works beautifully. It's my first receiver with Bluetooth - a fun feature. Be sure to make it your default Bluetooth receptor or other electronics will not let it connect. I use Bose speakers with Speaker Cable and for the TV the TV Optical Audio - with An Adapter to standard audio plugs. I like that this receiver has 4 audio inputs plus 4 direct wire inputs.

It's great then I bought TWO
This model is not selling in Taiwan so I bought overseas and paid extra $100 for shipping and duties. I bought the first unit new from eBay for my reading room and paired with Audio Note AX-One bookshelf speakers. It sounds natural and relaxed, I used BT, line in, radio and all sound great. I bought the second unit from BH and the price increased by 50%, anyhow it's still a good bargain.

Very nice unit
Very good unit. Nice minimal look, great feature set. It would be nice if it didn't switch bluetooth connection when it's currently playing, but it's a small point.

Great sound except for Sony Turntable
I read the great reviews and was excited to see the $149.00 price. I had been looking for a Sony Receiver that had a dedicated phono input but my Sony PS-LX300USB turntable sounds terrible through it, distorted and weak. I'm using Polk bookshelf speakers which sound great for radio and music off my phone via Bluetooth. Any help or advice would be great!!

A decent amp for the price
Wanted a simple, straight forward 2ch amp with Bluetooth to listen to music. Sony amp fit the bill nicely. Like the phono input as I have whole stock of old vinyl records. Very easy to operate and listen to even though I wish there was more bass. Overall its a decent amp for the price.

Nice receiver and good features
I like the product design and features. There is good reception for several stations, however I live away from the city and would like to add an external antenna to get my favorite station, but this is not possible.

How do you get AM on this?
A shopper on May 20, 2019
  The receiver's tuner is FM only.
Can I hook up my Bose system to this receiver?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2020
  Thanks for your question. Bose makes various speaker systems with differing connection capabilities. Without knowing your Bose system model number or name we are unable to provide an answer. Please let us know exactly what you have so we can assist you.
How do I hook up my HDTV to the receiver?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Sony STR-DH190 Stereo Receiver has analog audio line inputs and Bluetooth receiving capability. It has no HDMI or digital inputs. If you TV is capable of streaming via Bluetooth content, the Sony could receive it. If your TV has an audio line output or a headphone output it could be connected to one set of analog line inputs on the Sony.
Can you hook up a hi-def TV to it?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The STR-DH190 has 4 sets of analog audio line inputs. If your TV has an audio line output or a headphone jack, it could be connected to one set of audio inputs on the DH190.
