Easy set-up
Since I was replacing an old Sony system the speakers were already mounted and in place but the installation couldn't have been simpler.

FM Flaws
I would love to give this a 5* but the FM antenna (or lack there of) is a 2 pin wire about 3 feet long and is a horrible draw back for someone who listens to a lot of broadcast radio. If Sony would have included a better way to add an external antenna this would be a fantastic system. As is, their answer to my problem is "move your system to another location"..... Unacceptable and a poor solution!

Why did I ever leave Sony?
Went from Sony in the ‘80s to Denon and Yamaha and now back to it with the best results for connectivity to my 4K tv, Roku, 5.1 Bose speakers, router, and the tv box. what an easy process. Best feature? The automatic sound selection.

I eliminated the tangle of wires behind my home theater components. This is my 3rd Sony receiver over a 30 year timeframe. They are all still working. Reliability of Sony Stuff is unparalleled! Sound quality is fantastic.

How many watts is it??
A shopper on Nov 5, 2019
  The manufacturer publishes the output as 145 watts per channel at 6 ohms.
I intend on hooking a set on 80s model tower speakers and a new LG soundbar with Bluetooth sub to this. I do everything from my Xbox and am looking for something that can handle everything. Will this work?
Tyler P on Jun 22, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. Integrating a multi-channel receiver with a soundbar may be problematic. The receiver can power all the speakers in a surround set up, including a powered subwoofer. Not knowing the connection capabilities of your Xbox, a soundbar may not integrate with the receiver. If it does the soundbar output may not be in sync with the receiver output. You may want to discuss this set up with one of our product specialists.
Can you connect a Nintendo Wii audio/video cables. There are 3 cables from the Wii for this purpose (white, red, yellow)?
Stephen B on Apr 30, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The STR-DH590 does not have a composite (yellow) video input. Does your Wii console have an HDMI output jack? If so then an HDMI cable between the Wii and Sony would work for audio and video, assuming your TV HDMI input is connected to the Monitor (TV) Out HDMI jack on the Sony.
What speaker system is best for this receiver?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. There are a multitude of speaker options for your consideration: room size, preferred speaker locations within the room, personal preferences, and your budget. Left, Center channel, and Right are the most important, plus a powered subwoofer, all within your budget. Take a look on our website: Home Audio, then Home Theater Systems & Speaker Packages. This will be a great starting point. You may call our customer service team to follow up on your interests. 866-961-7781.
Can the STR-DH590 soundfield selector be used to enhance standard analog stereo sources to play back in 5.1 surround with all appropriate speakers connected?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The STR-DH590 has selectable sound fields and a Multi Channel Stereo setting that outputs 2 channel to all connected speakers. Also includes an audio enhancer setting that reproduces the acoustics of selectable venues and Dolby Pro Logic II.
I intend to buy this and use it on BDV-E6100 speakers. How effective would that be?
Vice Lennox on Jan 17, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The BDV-E6100 is a complete 5.1 Home Theater System with Blu-ray Disc / DVD. The attached speaker cables and plugs are not configured to be connected to a home theater receiver. Cutting off the plugs may make it difficult to maintain accurate polarity when connected to a receiver. It appears that the only way to connect the BDV to DH590 is via an HDMI cable in order to watch a DVD. The TV would have to be connected via HDMI from the HDMI Out on the DH590. It may be adaptable to work with the STR-DH590 but you would be bypassing the amps and processing on the BDV-6100.
Hello, is it possible to buy in USA a 220V version?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2020
  A 220V is not available in the US. Thanks.
Can I listen to music Via Bluetooth or with aux and tv/hdmi at the same time?
DChop on May 22, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Sony STR-DH590 is capable of playing only one source at a time. You could listen to an aux source or a Bluetooth stream and watch your TV at the same time, and listen to TV sound with the TV speakers, but if you select TV via an HDMI input you would no be able to listen to Bluetooth or aux input.
Is this compatible with Acoustics RS-9 5.1 home theater system?
Eserum on May 2, 2020
  Thanks for your question. BNW Acoustics products appear to be of lesser quality and have received few credible reviews. We offer 5.1 speaker systems from Polk Audio, Yamaha, and others. Every product we sell is backed up by the manufacturers warranty. We recommend that you look at products from recognized speaker manufacturers who sell their products from reputable dealers.
Can I rig 2 speakers independent of the other 5? 2 for CD playback and 5 for home theatre>?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Sony STR-DH590 can only power one speaker per speaker output terminal. There is no provision to connect a pair exclusively for 2 channel listening at the same time the other 5 channels are connected. Connecting 2 pair of speakers to the front output terminals would exceed the capability of the amps and risk damaging the unit. Note that the unit has Selectable Sound Fields, allowing you to select 2 channel stereo mode playing only through the front left and right speakers. You could connect your preferred CD listening speakers to front left and right in place of the surround fronts.
Is this turntable compatable? Do you have to purchase a preamp?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2019
  Thanks for your question. This Sony unit does not have a built in phono preamplifier. We offer a wide variety of phono preamps. https://www.worldwidestereo.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=Phono+preamplifier
Whats the bluetooth range?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2018
