Sony STR-DN1010 review: Sony STR-DN1010

 

Sony STR-DN1010

7.1 channel AV receiver; four HDMI inputs; graphical user interface; analog video upconversion; audio return channel support; standby pass-through; 3D compatible.

Not our top pick for sound quality; requires $100 dock for iPod/iPhone connectivity; competitors offer more HDMI inputs; skimpy on extra features, such as traditional multiroom functionality and USB connectivity; dynamic range compression turned on by...

Sony's midrange AV receiver improves on its predecessor with new HDMI features like standby pass-through and 3D compatibility, but it lacks a compelling reason to pick it over its competitors.

Sony STR-DN1010 review

 

If you like big and brash excitement, then you'll enjoy this Sony – but we found it to be a one trick pony that just can't compete

Stripped-down looks ; ergonomically impeccable ; hair-raisingly up-front sound

But who wants their hair on end the whole time?

This price-point is more competitive than ever before, and a one-trick pony like this Sony is off the pace

Sony STR-DN1010 review

 

Design The STR-DN1010 goes for a minimalist look, with a glossy front panel uncluttered by the usual knobs and buttons that tend dominate AV receivers. There's a power button the left, a large volume button the right (with a mute button), and an input...

Sony DN1010

 

I ordered this receiver prior to Christmas and received it ahead of schedule. This really is a great looking unit. It was very easy to hook up. The calibration mic did an excellent job of getting the sound right. This model replaced an older Pioneer...

Big fan of Sony products

 

Picked up the S570 wifi blu ray player. The Strdn 1010 seem like a good match for it. Paired the reciever with a set of bose 201's for the front and vcs30 bose center channel and surround package, and of course a powered subwoofer. Makes for a great...

3D pass-thru, Great sound

I explain., It took 2 weeks before I was able to figure out how to bypass the GUI on-screen display. In review

My 3rd Sony Receiver

 

You have to really read the user guide to fully take advantage all the features this unit haves to offer. Not only read but really "play" with the settings to understand what they do. It didn't hurt that this is my 3rd AV Receiver from Sony, so I had a...
