Sony STR-DE895 - STEREO RECEIVER - w/remote, phono inputs

Price :

For Sale: High quality classic Sony receiver for stereo music or 6.1 home theater surround sound use.

This is a really well made receiver with a very heavy power transformer. Has phono inputs for hooking up a classic turntable record player.  Includes a Sony RM-AAU005 remote that will control most all of the functions of the unit. Looks like it's powered by 12 large power transistor connected to a big finned aluminum heat sink. Sound quality is excellent with no hum or distortion. All speaker outputs checked and working correctly. Very good FM stereo reception. Nice bright (dimmable) display. Does not show much wear and is clean.

From the web:

Sony has loaded the STR-DE895 with everything you need for state-of-the-art 6.1 surround for movies and music. An advanced 32-bit processor provides ultra-precise Dolby® Digital EX and DTS-ES® decoding, which can deliver 6.1 surround from any 5.1 Dolby Digital or DTS source. You also get DTS Neo:6 modes, which let you transform stereo and older surround sources into convincing 6.1 sound. Stereo purists will love the analog direct mode, which lets you bypass all digital processing for ultra-clean sound from your analog sources. 100 full-bandwidth-rated watts x 6 powers a standard 5.1 speaker system and a back surround speaker — no additional amp required!

Convenient front-panel buttons give you easy access to every playback option this receiver offers. Want to watch a movie? Just press the AFD ("Auto Format Decode") button — the receiver automatically detects the surround format of the incoming source, and plays back multichannel sound through your home theater speakers. When you want to listen to stereo sources exactly as recorded, press the "2-channel" button.

Connectivity abounds with two multichannel inputs (one 6.1, one 5.1), front-panel optical digital and A/V inputs, 4 back-panel digital inputs, an optical digital output, HDTV-compatible component video switching, and more! Available in black or silver.
