According to many posts I've read here, the Sony DE receiver line is not looked upon as being in the same league as other brands. But are they really that awful? I've seen a lot of posts that bash the sound quality of the DE series, but with few specifics. I think that often someone posts a negative review of a particular piece of equipment and then many folks take the review as gospel and continually repeat the negative opinion. Or perhaps these receivers really are terrible???? Opinions please!
