This is an outstanding receiver!

  • Summary: I have never regretted purchasing Sony products. From alarm radios to televisions, personal recording devices to audio equipment, the quality is outstanding. This STR-DN1000 became available just before the Holidays and it was too good to pass up. Excellent sound/receiving and the SIRIUS addition was a neat extra. We have the receiver hooked up to the HDTV (yep, it's a Sony too) and it produces tremendous, clear quality sound.

Unit was a Lemon , Sony customer service was worse!

  • Summary: I purchased this unit on November 27th, 2009 and within 3 months of just using this receiver for nothing more than the occasional movie (surround sound), light music playing, etc. (It has never been cranked up, or abused), it blew 2 integrated circuits (Microchips). After contacting Sony Customer Service, they told me it had to be shipped to the closest repair center (Laredo, TX from Ohio).

Excellent Midrange Receiver...The New Mistress In My Life!!!

  • Summary: The Sony STR-DN1000 7.1-Channel Audio Video Receiver (Black)is a awesome sight to look at for sure, but even novice audiophiles understand that you don't purchase a receiver because she looks better than your old girl. You purchase a receiver b/c you want to know if she can perform well at all task. Well, let me tell you...she can, this receiver is well equipped and performs very well.

What a Beauty

Steven L. Moore, Amazon

  • Summary: I recently updated much of my home theater equipment , and needed to replace my Sony STRE-985 receiver, which did not have any HDMI connections.I checked CNET's review and they rated a Pioneer receiver the best, but no one had any in stock , so I took a hard look at the STR-DN1000. At $180.00 less than the Pioneer unit , this was a steal.

Fantastic Sounding Receiver!

P. G. Keller "Packerfan75", Amazon

  • Summary: After much reading and researching, I found the Sony STR-DN1000 to offer the most features and best sound in the $300 price range. I just decided to upgrade from my 3 yr. old Pioneer receiver because it didn't decode HD audio on Blu Ray discs. I was looking for something reasonably priced that did and that would have enough features to last awhile. After alot of reading and looking around, the choice was between the Sony STR-DN1000 and the Sony STR-DH800.

4.8 star receiver

Andrew Singh, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: Bought this to replace an 11 year old 5.1 Nakamichi. The surround and digital output using all HDMI produces thunderous bass and crystal clear highs. My mom was watching Angels and Demons on Blu Ray last night and 700 watts of the exploding Volkswagen made the walls resonate and she jumped out of her chair! Unit is 'expensive' looking and the GUI seems pretty decent so far.

I like this receiver a lot.

L. Ross "amazontrader", Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I have had this receiver since Aug. 1, 2009, and am very happy with it. It is missing some features like S-VHS inputs but none that I care about. I purchased it to use with HDMI devices in a 5.1 setup in one room. It works great for me and I highly recommend it. PLUSES: * Excellent audio. * Good GUI that is easy to use, but you must read the manual first and consult it as you go (at least I had to).
