Sony STR-DN1040 7.1 A/V Receiver

 

At the end of my time with the Sony STR-DN1040 I am surprised and happy by what I found. More and more of the content we consume comes from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Getting it from there to your AV system is not nearly as easy as it could be....

Sony STR-DN1040 AV Receiver Review: WiFi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay Oh My!

 

The Sony STR-DN1040 is a big step up from the STR-DN1030 we reviewed last year. A new Remote, GUI, mobile app, and FLAC support are just some of the improvements Sony made. Read on for a full review.

Bluetooth, WiFi, and AirPlay ; Smooth user interface ; Great sound quality

Disjointed network/app control ; Poor zone 2 integration

Sony STR-DN1040 7.2 Channel Network Home Theater Receiver Review

 

Sony has crammed a lot into the STR-DN1040. However, that doesn't mean audio performance has been neglected. In listening to the STR-DN1040 for several weeks, and with several speaker systems, I found it to be a great sounding receiver. Power output...

VAST Improvements Over Previous AVR's

 

I got this receiver for $499.99 as it's a 2013 model and that seems to be the going rate across the net. I've always purchased Sony products fully knowing I am paying a bit more for the name, however in return I would always receive a certain level of...

Lots of capabilities, especially connecting to other Sony equipment ; Plenty of connection interfaces/ports ; On-screen graphics for system configuration/setup ; Good, clean crisp high quality sound

The Wi-Fi connection on this AVR seems to be weak and lacking when it comes to connecting to wireless routers as I've had nothing but problems with it using Wi-Fi; plugged in an Ethernet cable, updated the firmware and used some of the Wi-Fi features...

SONY STRDN1040

 

I choose this receiver because this one supports 4k. It has plenty HDMI port, and the sound quality is better than I expected. The price is not that expensive compare to the others that supports 4k. I think it is a very good deal

none so far. However, I don't like the remote control. But, I guess it is not a big deal

WHAT a TREAT!

 

GLAD I replaced my Pioneer 1019 with this Sony 1040!

Numero UNO: The SOUNDs are unbelievable from this AVR - it's the BEST AVR I have ever owned! I am now hearing things that I never knew existed in ads and sound tracks. Also - Bonus for me is being able to receive/listen to Pandora and other OTA Radio too

Unable to synch up remote with the DTV Remote so I have to use both remotes [volume/mute
