Sony STR-DN1030 AV Receiver Review

 

On paper, the Sony STR-DN1030 looks like quite an impressive receiver, with a feature list poised to make other $500 receivers blush. Among those features are built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplay, HDMI upconversion and a new user interface. In my opinion,...

Built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ; Wide range of Network Features

Limited Zone 2 Functionality ; Confusing Remote ; Poor User Interface

OK for what you pay

 

If you want surrond for movies at a good price go for it, If music is your primary use put more money toward a better reciever. Wish I had set mine aside and waited to get a marantz.

Lots of features ; Price is good ; sound is ok

Gui Is As Bad As Reviewes ; Over Heats Easly ; Worst Remote Imaninable
