The Sony STRDH510 is the ideal introduction into the joys of separate home cinema.

Although it's just a basic AV receiver, the STRDH510 has everything the AV novice needs and is sonically miles better than most all-in-one AV systems. Featuring triple HDMI inputs and an HDMI output, the STR-DH510 is the ideal AV receiver to use as the heart of your AV system. Connect up, for example, a Blu-ray, PS3 and HD set-top box and you'll benefit from just a single connection lead between your receiver and TV. What's more, the STRDH510 will carry through 1080p, Deep Colour and x.v. Colour, ensuring full compatibility with the highest quality video signals. Other sources are taken care of by a wide selection of other sockets including optical, coaxial, component, phono and composite. A socket unique to Sony is the Digital Media Port. When used with a selection of optional components, this allows for the integration of a wide range of media products, including Apple's iPod.

Although technically advanced, setting up requires only a minimum of time. BRAVIA Sync links to other Sony BRAVIA products via the HDMI to give exceptional ease of use. Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) optimises the settings to your room's requirements - at the touch of a button. Other great features with this Sony AV receiver include an RDS tuner radio, Portable Audio Enhancer for improved sound from your MP3 or iPod and a sleep timer.

In addition to offering great value for money, the Sony STRDH510 is also one of the best looking AV receivers at its price. Designed to match Sony's sleek Blu-ray players, the STRDH510 boasts a gloss black finish and a minimal button count for smooth, good looks.

As a first step to proper, separates AV, the Sony STR-DH510 has everything you need with none of the frills.

Let your ears decide for you - I couldn't tell the difference so went for a cheaper amp, others will swear the difference is like chalk and cheese! Head to your local AV store and try and blag a demo!

for the price its got all you need.

Hmm looks like a good repalcement for my old one. The question is can you buy a seperate Subwoof? I have the Centre, Front, Rear speakers already.
The current Amp and Subwoof are acombined unit. So I would need a new SubWoof..!
Or Perhaps there is a complet good set of speakers you can add to this.

You would need to get a sub, have a look though the range at Richer Sounds they have some good deals on

Far better to get a known brand like this than an unheard of brand like Onkyo

Why are the new ones so massive? I got a Sony one about 7-8 years ago as part of a Home Theatre kit and it's slimline like a DVD player and the only difference I can see is that this has HDMI connectivity (which for me is a bit daft - why feed your video through the amp rather than direct to the TV?).

Sony - Yuk!

Buckfast67uk, you obviously don't have a clue!

I smells a troll

Does anyone know if it decodes the HDMI audio or just passes it through?

The benefit is that when you switch source on the amp from say PS3 to Blu-ray, both the sound and picture will switch. With everything connected separately to your TV you'd have to keep switching the TV input (assuming the TV can even take multiple HDMI connections). Some amps also take an SD signal and output it as 1080p.

I can see how that would be a benefit I guess - would you not still lose some picture quality though as opposed to having it connected directly?

I don't need an AV amp, but I always have to read the threads when they come up. Just to see the Onkyo/Sony brand jokes. Half of the posters don't get it and feel aggrieved, while the other half laugh.
L'boro Man is a legend!

Heat added - good amp for a cracking price

Heat added, if I wasn't skint I would replace my old Kenwood as I need HDMI....

I'm no expert, but I don't think the signal is degraded at all - might even improve it. Anyone?

How does this compare to the sony 810 amp?

sony or onkyo both great brands

wish I could convince my bro to go for the likes of this, and finally get rid of the old "pro-logic" addon to his mini system

I have this and got it 12months ago great sound with Tannoy speakers and woofer with blu-ray etc the wife goes ape when i wack it up LOUD
