Sony STR-DN850


Sony's first amp of 2014 is an impressive and well-featured all-rounder at a great price

Big, immersive sound ; Lots of detail ; Well-featured ; Strong stereo performance ; Simple set up and operation ; Lovely user interface

Can sound bright, so needs careful matching to get the best from it

The Sony STR-DN850 is among the first 2014 AV receivers we’ve seen and we are suitably impressed.
