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.

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...

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...

Great stereo with bells and whistles

 

So I looked for quite a while online for a stereo until I chose this model from Sony. It was rated best in it's class and had everything I was looking for. The one downside was that the HDMI blew after 3 weeks. This was no big deal though as I just...
