From Bluetooth streaming to vinyl and taking in FM radio on the way, the Sony STRDH190 caters for all your stereo needs.

Designed for a system that revolves around vinyl

If you love vinyl and want a stereo receiver that will really make the most of it, take a look at this Sony. With its built-in phono pre-amp, any turntable with an MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge can be plugged in – no separate box required. The quality phono pre-amp is carefully positioned away from the power transformer, minimising interference and maximising music detail.

Optimised for Sony turntables
Although it works well with all turntables, the Sony STR-DH190 was developed with Sony’s PS-HX500 and PS-LX300USB. This means that when you pair either of these two decks with the receiver you can guarantee you’re getting the optimal sound quality.

Bluetooth connection for music streaming
When you’re not spinning discs, this flexible Sony is just as happy streaming music from your smartphone or tablet. Simply connect via Bluetooth and enjoy your stored music and favourite streaming services such as Spotify and Deezer. A neat extra function is the ability to power the receiver on from your smartphone, too.

High quality, powerful sound
Using a discreet amplifier, with separate components, gives the Sony a pure and detailed sound. With a large capacity transformer, there’s also power to match the purity – no less than a punchy 100 watts per channel.

The heart of your system
As a receiver, the STR-DH190 also comes with a built-in FM radio with 30 presets. Other music sources you might have are handled by the four RCA inputs – enough for a CD player, TV, streamer and other source. With two sets of speaker outputs, you can also have music in another room.

If you love music, then love all formats, with the all-inclusive Sony STR-DH190.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in all respects I was given excellent advice by Terry, Store Manager at London Bridge. The Sony Audio amplifier which I subsequently purchased is proving to be absolutely perfect. I am now going to purchase some wireless headphones, of course from the same source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, sounds great, value great. Like others have said in their reviews, I can't fault this amp and its features. I bought it to hook up my turntable, cd and tape separates and its all working very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance Bought to replace an (extremely) old Yamaha system. Very easy to set up and a cinch to operate via the remote. Sound is excellent, even from 1980s cassette and cd players. Partnered with an Audio-Technica deck and Wharfedale diamond 9.0 speakers gives a more than acceptable sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with a bit of disappointment.. I purchased this Sony Receiver/Amp as I had recently had to replace my old CD player so I thought to upgrade my 35 year old Kenwood amp as well. I am very pleased with this amp and the sound it puts out to me is excellent and clear. It is very easy to use and the remote is as basic as it could be and again is simple to use. My only complaint which others have made is to the receiver part of the amp. It is FM only and the Micro 2 pin aerial provided is as useful as a piece of string. The area I live in is noted for poor radio reception and this aerial only picked up 3 stations and one of them not well. This amp I think is badly let down being marketed as a receiver yet doesn't have an option to plug in a better quality after market aerial. Whoever decided to fit this 2 pin aerial connector on what is a good amplifier ought to be sacked. It lets the unit down badly. Other than that, I am very pleased with the amp and its features and many inputs. Were it not for the aerial this would have got 5 starts from me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from versatile with generous inputs and outputs A rare beast this, an example of something that was ubiquitous and has become niche, the mid price hi fi amp with a vast array of analogue input otions plus bluetooth and enough weight for 2 sets of speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, superb value I bought this amp after speaking to one of the experts at Richer Sounds who recommended it based upon my needs. It's well built, great quality and has all the functionality I need. I use it to connect to a Sonos port so I can take advantage of the surround sound system I have for my turntable and CD player. The expert at Richer Sounds not only saved me some money but explained the benefits of the AMP and how to set it all up. Great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amp This was a Christmas present and it’s absolutely brilliant.This replaces a Cambridge Amp which was connected to my Sony LX300USB turntable and the sound was terrible. The sound now is 500% better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality! This is my first amp for my turntable as I had a double deck setup, and it’s perfect. I’m now using Audio Monitor speakers and now it sounds better than ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent to use, great sound Despite the fact that this receiver/amplifier has a very old level of technology it is simple to set up and operate. Sound is of a high standard with bass and treble as an extra on the hand set. The Bluetooth facility connects to my iPad and phone very easily. Other features give easy access to my iPod classic music through the amp as well as recordability via my CD recorder. My Sony record deck sounds great through this system. For the price this unit gives me everything I wanted. Great help from the Middlesbrough store staff, I fell lucky that they had one left in store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Capable turntable amplifier Bought mainly to hook up with an old budget turntable, I'm certainly not feeding this with top quality input. However, what I can say is that the amp provides a capable solution if you have plenty of sources. In my case I'm feeding in an Audio Chromecast, turntable, cassette deck, CD, a further video Chromecast - and of course it has built-in BlueTooth and an FM tuner. The fact remains that this amp ticks many boxes, even if its sound isn't quite as punchy as its power would indicate. It has bass and treble controls, and this has helped massage the sound to my satisfaction, but they're only accessible from the supplied remote control - so don't lose it for the next lucky owner! I only give it average value, simply because I can't quite believe the cost of kit these days and it's not a criticism aimed specifically at this device ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I've expected The best £ 200 I've ever spent! Is a 2 x 100, driving my 2 x 200 pair of Sony towers (SHmf750h) just great; Got plenty of power, bluetooth, radio, is stylish with 2 big knobs, basically you take a lot of a receiver for these money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Budget Amp For the price, this amplifier is amazing. I use it in my bedroom with a pair of 8 Ohm 50W speakers and it sounds great - even heavily compressed You Tube music videos. Just one thing to be aware of: using the Bluetooth connection may interfere with a 2.4GHz WiFi signal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise, transparent sound & great value I haven't tried all its features yet, but the phono stage is exceptionally flat (the spec says +/- 1 dB, and I believe it) and it has plenty of "oomph", getting the best out of my speakers at all frequencies. It seems particularly well matched to a good pair of Beyer Dynamic headphones, but I found it a tiny bit harsh with my AKG K550s. I always have preferred the Beyers though, so that suits me fine! The bass is extended but not boomy and the treble is similarly extended but not tinny. In fact I haven't noticed anything wrong with the audio quality at all (so far). Overall the sound is transparent - it sounds as if you're right there in the concert hall, and it feels like you're just hearing the sounds that the producer intended. There's no audible distortion, background noise or hum. The only things I'm not keen on are the connectors - the socket for the FM aerial needs an adapter to connect it to a proper aerial, and the speaker connectors are just push-fit types - no binding posts or 4mm sockets. This isn't too important - it's easy enough to hook up a proper FM aerial if you don't mind doing a bit of DIY, and the speaker connections work perfectly well as long as you're careful to avoid shorts between the wires. In most areas (where there's reasonably good FM reception) the tuner is almost faultless - it locks onto signals easily and only degrades gracefully if the signal is a bit weak (no nasty noises - just a gradual increase in noise). In weaker signal areas (like where I live) it's worth using a separate aerial though, at least if you want to listen in stereo rather than mono.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value After 34 years my Ion Obelisk has finally given up the ghost, so I shopped around for a replacement. Richer Sounds have always been my local store so I popped in and ordered one (Sony STR- DH 190). I managed to install it and hooked it up to my record player, my CD player, my Apple Nano (by bluetooth) and my 34 year old Tannoy Eclipse speakers. .Brilliant sound and worth every pound of its £199 price tag.
Date published: 2021-06-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for its price Bought to replace old but very good quality amp/speakers. Thought at this price it might be a bit warm/soft but very pleasantly surprised paired with Dali Spector 2. Sound is very good and clear, not entirely convinced about 100watts - feels more like a third of it but ample for a big room. Easy to use, Bluetooth works very well from iPads and phones, plenty of inputs. At £200 it’s hard to find anything to criticise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Bluetooth and Phono AMP Its a straight up, good quality practical amp for those that want to stream but also connect other separates. Could also be used in a home cinema set up. Easy set up, good sound and perfect that want to swap out an older amp for one with bluetooth compatibility. Its going to be providing tunes for out kitchen disco for the next few years! The only problem is stopping mates with dodgy taste from hijacking the tunes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony`s is back !!!! it has only been a few weeks , but this new acquisition is well worth my recommendations . The comeback to listening to " real music " vinyl's that is , the kind that you feel you have something substantial size and quality wise , prompted me to upgrade the temporary budget made in China cheerful amp .... I was not sure about the combi receiver/amp but was , on, the other hand keen on the Bluetooth facility to pair my music library from my cell phone . This amp is absolutely brilliant ! simple to operate , very quick and efficient with the Bluetooth finding/pairing and the dynamic ranges for altering treble and bass. It is paired with wharfedale Diamond 9.1 and am using my old " working horse " Bush acoustics MTT2 c/ Audio Technica AT3600L cartridge ... the sound is rich and velvety for me ... even playing video opera from utube via cell phone Bluetooth is superb ...acoustics only records ... Neil Young ... Leonard Cohen are clear and crisps as if , they were in the same room ...( aren`t they ??? lol ...)...the only thing missing for me , might well become upgrading my turntable for the Sony PSLX310BT ...who knows ... it is in my watching list ! .... in all , this amp is meeting my expectations and more ... Sony has redeemed themselves from the past Sony CMT-X3CD who was terrible ! and is now giving me some quality musical moments ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features & great sound. Bought this to link with a turntable and speakers and works great, however the Bluetooth option is where this amp comes into its own. Completely changed how I listen to music... Alexa is no more!!
