The Sony STR-DN840 ($420 street) is by far the best AV receiver value of 2013. It starts with its outstanding wireless features, serving up built-in Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and Bluetooth, which no other receiver at this price can match. That allows Sony to...

A talented, well-equipped amp – just make sure it's a sonic match for the rest of your system

Precise, agile sound with plenty of energy ; Plenty of connections and features

Sounds thin, especially at higher volumes

The Sony STR-DN840 is a very good home cinema amp, even if it doesn’t quite display the all-round strength of its bigger sibling.

"Poor build quality, sound & connections. Keep receipt"

 

Physically unplug and re-plug it in to get it to work each time. Everything is new. Put in all new New Direct TV New Samsung 3D F8500 TV New Sony Blu-Ray which is awful also. Nope, still no work.

Cheap price and looked nice. If it had worked as promoted it would have been great.

Doesn't work, had video but no sound when used for anything other than radio. Remote really cheap.

Bluetooth is easy to use

It is not inexpensive

Great for the Price

 

This unit is working out really well and it does everything that I need it to do. It replaced a 20+ year-old system with which I had been fudging it with adapters to connect it to modern equipment. With all of the HDMI inputs, this is a breeze to set...
