Sony STR-DN1050

 

Big, muscular sound, Wide soundfield, Lots of fine and subtle detail, Rhythmic and musical, Well-featured, Easy to use

A touch of brightness at high volumes

Product of the Year, Awards 2014. A seriously good amp that balances muscle and subtlety with stacks of features at a great price.

2 down 3rd on the way = Stay Away

 

I'm going out to buy a Denon and will try and sell the next exchange unit for a boat anchor. That's about all its good for.

They paid for shipping the bad second unit back

Purchased this unit based on several top reviews that I read in various places. I have no problem with the reviewers. I'm sure the manufacturer's have an extra QC check before those demo units go out the door. Unfortunately what is provided to the...

awesome receiver.

 

I used to be a jvc electronics guy until they stopped making home component receivers. switched to sony and have not regretted the decision. This receiver puts the icing on the cake. i have an iphone connected through bluetooth and it works like a...

Solid successor to the STR-DN1040

 

My modest home theater setup: Sony Bravia KDL-60W610B 60" LED-LCD HDTV Sony PS3 (excellent for DVD/BluRay playback) Sony STR-DN1050 AVR Polk New Monitor speakers (awesome budget speakers when on sale): 2x 75T front L/R main channels 1x 25C center...

The STR-DN1050 is a solid successor to the previous model (STR-DN1040), but the changes are mostly evolutionary. It offers reasonable, clean power output for its class, with a multitude of sound field options, producing an excellent and accurate...

There are still no pre-outs for primary zone audio channels to combine with an external amplifier (which I'd prefer over Zone 2 outputs), and the total power output is basically unchanged from the STR-DN1040. Sony cut the number of HDMI inputs and...

Lovin it!

 

I bought Sony model STRDN1060 4K Ultra HD and 3D Pass-Through A/V Home Theater Receiver and the Core Series Dual 5" 3-Way floor standing speakers. They are a perfect match. I use them for my 5.1 surround as well as my music. This unit has a great CNET...

Great receiver!

 

My only complaint about this receiver is the fact that the default sound setting when it is first turned on is Sport. Why? And why doesn't it hang onto whatever it was set to when it turned off? But since there are sound shortcut buttons on the remote,...

2 Hdmi outputs

 

This was the best deal I could find for a receiver with 2 HDMI OUTPUTS. I can output to my projector and another TV. The process to decide which input you want to output on which device could be easier though.

Love this receiver

 

Love this receiver. The features and sound add up to be a winner. Supports 4k and all the latest standards. iPhone app is just ok. Playing the same source on both speakers A and speakers B can be problematic. If not for that I would have rated 5 stars
