. I asked for Sony's support, and what I got from them was just cut-and-pastes that didn't address this problem. Ditto with their online chatting. I know what you mean about people there who might have gotten themselves more envoled. I searched through their different massage boards (communities) but, amazingly, can not find one about receivers. I know that this can't be right. But, I really looked.
@ Bill-99. I bought the Sony STR-dH750 because my previous basic Sony DH130 2 channels receiver lacked a subwoofer output, and I had to connect the subwoofer via its speaker level inputs which I know isn't ideal. So, I bought this new receiver for its line level subwoofer output.
. I know that my listening room. It isn't ideal and the sound is too live. But, it is my art studio and so I can't put room treatments in it. Yes, I have the Radio Shack correction chart and it seems at least for the frequency range of the music that I listen to, the difference is .5 db which is acceptable for me. I know that my Sony Receiver is not that impressive. I had to stick with Sony as my receiver is connected to a timer and it doubles as my alarm clock. When the timer's setting turns on the Sony, it goes on automatically and blast my AM station very loudly and wakes me up. I know this sounds silly but I do need this. I have tried other brands of receivers - Pioneer, Technics, etc. and when the timer feeds the power to these receivers, they don't turn on automatically.
My current set up is a Sony STR-Hd730 receiver, a Dayton Audio SUB 1000L subwoofer, and a set of Kef !100 speakers. The receiver is connected to my laptop and I play mostly M4A files via MediaMonkey
