Sony's connected, feature-packed STR-DN1060 AV receiver boasts big sound (review)

 

The Sony STR-DN1060 receiver offers more features than previous years while offering the same high level of performance.

The Sony STR-DN1060 offers solid design, a high level of usability, and excellent home theater surround sound. The AV receiver offers a number of useful features including Bluetooth headphone support and multiroom capability.

Its sound is somewhat more suited to movies than music. The multiroom SongPal Link app isn't as robust as some competitors' offerings. Spotify Connect not available at launch.

The Sony STR-DN1060 AV receiver offers great sound and is chock full of solid streaming audio features, but rivals are nipping at its heels.

Sony STR-DN1060 A/V Receiver Review

 

If you can do without Dolby Atmos in this seven-channel AVR, Sony's well-thought-out wireless functionality and sweet, golden sound are an unbeatable combination. Threat: "a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile...

Sony STR-DN1060 review

 

Sony has a reputation for excellent, budget AV receivers - can the STR-DN1060 continue the trend?

Authoritative sound Good level of detail Rhythmic musical performance

Brightness in 2CH Only one HDCP 2.2 input No Dolby Atmos

The STR-DN1060 has plenty going for it, but that isn’t quite as straightforward as before. Those looking to futureproof their system with Atmos won’t find that here, and with the Denon AVR-X2200W showing that it is possible at the same price, things...

Sony's connected, feature-packed STR-DN1060 AV receiver boasts big sound (review)

 

For the past several years, Sony's midrange AV receivers have enjoyed a healthy mix of extensive features and compelling performance. For 2015, the STR-DN1060 (AU$1,299 RRP) is the best model in Sony's middle tier (stepping up to the high-end ES line...

"Great connectivity and multi-channel processing with Auto Set-up"

 

Big improvement over the previous model line-up from Sony. Improved all the right stuff.

Feature set and abundant power for most listening levels

No auto-select for audio processing from any given source; have to hunt-and-pick manually.

Easy Setup For Non-Geek

 

Started out with less expensive brand went bad within two weeks. Returned to store for full refund added a few dollars and bought Sony AV. Much, much better units, easy install setup for non-geek (me). Quality is superior. Very satisfied! Chris

Awesome A/V Receiver!

 

I decided to wait for this 4K receiver rather than purchasing one from the pro line and couldn't be more impressed. While I'm still learning all of the features, it sounds great and is so easy to setup and use. Plus, it seemlessly works with all other...

Returned

 

I returned this receiver and picked up the Onkyo, the reason being was this Sony was far to hard to understand, the online manual was very confusing. I couldn't figure out how to get zone two to work and the wired on line connection just wouldn't...

The unit sounds great. It allows me to connect my Sony DVD and Sony CD player. I can stream music from my computer nicely. I cannot connect to the Internet even though my computer is recognized. I cannot get the FM function to work. I have connected...
