Sony STR-DN1050

 

If you're looking to expand your home-theater horizons beyond just your TV and a sound bar , then a receiver and discrete set of speakers is the next step. For a midrange price, the Sony STR-DN1050 offers a great mix of features and performance,...

The Sony STR-DN1050 receiver offers an excellent selection of features for the price, including built-in Wi-Fi, AirPlay, Spotify, and Bluetooth. It delivered excellent sound quality for both surround-sound and stereo. Sony's user interface and remote...

Not as many streaming options as competitors; fewer HDMI ports than last year's model.

The Sony STR-DN1050 is a great deal that offers almost everything you could want in a midrange receiver.

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.

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...

Excellent Theater Sound With Plenty of Power

 

This was an upgrade from the DN840. I wanted an upgrade in power and really like the new user interface of the newer models.

Very easy to setup and sounds great

 

This product was very easy to configure and setup. You basically plug in the desired components, run Auto Tune, and then you are up and running. The Settings UI is much better than some of the other receivers on the market.
