Easy to setup, Digital Cinema Sound with Cinema Studio EX Modes, 100 Watts per channel in Dolby Digital
This receiver i bought 3 yrs ago, so far I have had no problems and I enjoy all the features that it has. I actually have some old AIWA Speakers hooked up to this system, and a Sony Subwoofer which realy gives this system some power, I have tested it with all the great movies ( Lord of the rings, Star Wars, Matrix etc ) and it kicks butt!! My digital cable box which receives Dolby Digital signal also sounds great. Music from either CD or Digital cable sounds good, especially when I have the Dolby Pro-Logic II on music setting.
I paid $150.00 for this and was worth every penny!

This full-featured surround receiver is ready to take on media of today and tomorrow. The STR-DE595 pumps out 100 watts per channel across five main channels (left, right, center, left/right surround) and has a dedicated subwoofer output for a seventh. You get everything from Dolby Digital and DTS surround decoding to Dolby Pro Logic II processing (creating 5.1 channels from two) and 5.1-channel analog inputs to accommodate the latest high-resolution audio formats.
The receiver includes an FM/AM tuner with 30 station presets (20 FM, 10 AM) and three video inputs to simplify switching between components and your television. Two of the inputs are for standard composite-video (yellow RCA jack), while the third is ready for wide bandwidth (80 MHz) high-definition component-video signals.
There’s no phono input, but the unit’s two stereo and one multichannel analog audio inputs simplify hookup of, for instance, a cassette deck, a VCR, and a high-resolution audio device that decodes formats like SACD and DVD-Audio. Three digital-audio inputs (two optical and one coaxial) accept bitstream feeds from DVD players, CD players, and other digital devices.
An additional “B” speaker output lets you enjoy music or movie sound in a room other than your central listening area (speaker cable not included).
