Actually, his receiver has 5.1/DTS. I does not, however, have HDMI.

    Strangely, I see a review on amazon.com stating it does not have DTS. I dunno. Mine does. Maybe they made different versions over the years. Mine's from 2002, and clearly states "STR-DE-525 on the front, right next to the DTS logo.

The reciever you have is a dolby prolodgic system. the rear channel is monoral, that is that both rear speackers have the same infomation to it (and not much of it). the new suround sound systems are dolby digital/DTS suround sound. there is a major differance to the sound and the information presented. all channels are discreat and information provided by you digital outputs of your equipment provide the channel info (tv via optical digital out, DVD also optial or coaxal digital out, cable box also optical.)

Sony STR-DE685, home stereo, center speaker cuts out, as does left surround. tried everything. Worth fixing? or shitcan it?


It all depends on what's wrong it and if it's worth the price to fix it to YOU, doesn't it? If it's really broken only a tech can look at it and tell you the cost to fix it.


Have you eliminated the individual speakers and cables first? Or looked in the manual?

Check the fuse, Sony is known for its random problems with sound. The one I have you must tap it on the side. Its a flicker switch inside.

check/replace your speaker wires. If a wire came loose, it will go into "protect" mode and shut down, to protect from a short circuit.
