Website says £199 but it's only £150 for in-store customers! Lots of stock nationwide, just say you are a VIP and want it at the reduced price.

With 3D TV compatibility over 3 HDMI sockets, the Sony STRDN610 makes the perfect choice for a home cinema receiver that's not just good for the present but one that's also good for the future, too. Simply connect up your 3D Ready Blu-ray and TV and you'll be able to pass through the 3D vision, unhindered.

Of course, 3D TV compatibility is all very well, but if the amplification isn't up to much you're just sacrificing the sound for the picture. Fortunately, Sony haven't made any such sacrifices with the STR-DN610. With a powerful 100 watts per channel, the STRDN610 has ample drive to power most speakers to high levels in most rooms - certainly enough to annoy the neighbours should they be within earshot! Yet it's not just the power of this receiver that impresses, it's the quality, too. Eight Channel, Linear PCM gives true high definition sound from Blu-ray. The Bi-amp facility enables two amplifiers to drive each speaker (instead of Speakers B or extra surrounds) giving much better control and a "tighter" sound from the main speakers.

In terms of connections, the Sony STRDN610 has everything you'll need for a comprehensive system. In addition to the three HDMI sockets and a wide range of other sockets, there's also a feature that's unique to Sony; 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.

In addition to leading the class in terms of performance, the Sony STDN610 is also one of the best looking AV receivers at its price. Designed to match Sony's sleek Blu-ray players, the STRDN610 boasts a gloss black finish and a minimal button count for smooth, good looks.

For an AV receiver that's got the future in mind, check out the Sony STRDN610.

No, visiting Mother-in-Law ;-)

Seems a lot of amp for the money. Plus quite a lot of stock around. Wish I could afford Hot

I have to travel about 100 miles to get to a richer sounds, 2 hours there 2 back, so petrol costs and time is why I cant stand richer sounds deals, why cant they just sell it on-line ffs!! and too top it off usually every richer sounds deal has a certain guy trying to be funny....................still decent deal.

I bought it for £199 just 2 months ago,its sound a good deal for me

srtuggling to find reviews for this chappy.

What do people think.

I phone round all Manchester stores before the weekend - there is no stock anywhere near - you'll be lucky to grab one now. the RS VIP mailshot is nearly a week old. (see deal for Onkyo 3305 set - same story). PLEASE POST IF ANYONE FINDS ONE

wow 3 days to get in the hot list.

this is very likely expired

wow 3 days to get in the hot list.



yeah you're right. didn't realise ... surprising as after the £10 VIP voucher (£139) this was a stonking price of course

it's a good price but this receiver doesn't do enough for most people that are going to buy one...only 3 HDMI inputs, and you can get much better amps for £100 more. £300 buys you a low-mid range amp, £150 is true bottom end..not enough people interested imo.

Still its a good price if you need a second receiver for a small room (without only a few devices)

Thank you for the share - going to check this out.

P

- Managed to get one. Manager didnt beleive the price was correct, and asked to see the message. Show him hotdelas thread and he reduced the price from £199 to £149.99. He said that he I couldnt use the £10 voucher for joining the VIP lounge, on shop prices. The unit is very large and looks stylish P

Really? £150 as an RRP would be bottom end however if the price is reduced then it doesn't make it a bad amp. 3 HDMI inputs would be enough for many people - SKY/cable, DVD/Blu Ray and 1 spare for PS3/Xbox/other.

Not sure that your post is entirely accurate and may put people off for the wrong reasons.

I haven't voted cold but didn't this use to be £140?

I got the Onkyo 3305 (with 5 speakers) from Best Buy for just over £190 using the CINEMA10B code and Quidco - this is a good deal if you're Loughboro Guy and really want a Sony over an Onkyo, but for £40 extra with the speakers, I know which I'd rather have

Heat added anyway as this is a damn fine looking unit.

No HD sound spoils it for me but as a budget amp would fit the build for most

Hi, that seems a good deal you got. Are you impressed with the system

This is not an HD amp. it is worth spending the extra £50 to get HD.

what is this device in simple layman terms

Hello,

I was able to get hold of this at Kingston Richer Sounds last night and they did offer me for the VIP price (however £10 new joiner voucher is not valid).

I hooked this to my existing Bose AM6 speaker systems and connected my ipod using AV cables. For some reason, I feel the BASS is not that strong compared to my previous receiver for the same connection (i.e. ipod). I still haven't tried the HDMI connections yet.

I am not sure if I am missing any settings/calibrations to optimise the BASS performance.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Is the difference between dts & dts hd that apparent? What would you recommend over this unit?

I thought it was an outstanding deal, knowing that the Onkyo amps are usually around the £200 mark without any speakers, so I snapped it straight up... unfortunately I haven't received it yet as I'm expecting delivery this Saturday, but this review from Pocket Lint rates the system very highly.
