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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a mid end ONKYO stereo receiver that died and I havent been this happy with a sony product since I got my first walkman. The 7.1 sounds amazing with my polk subwoofer and matching speakers.
Summary: Great amp, use it for 7.1. Infinity 800 series speakers. Paired it with a sony blu ray player and sony 55 inch Bravia. Amazed at the sound quality for the price. I was able to pick the STR DN1000 up on Ebay for $300.00. You really can't beat it. I am very picky about surround sound but this component is sure to impress.
Summary: Great product, especially for the price(under $300). It has all the features I need and then some. I haven't even had a chance to get around to using all of the features. I haven't had any problems, concerns, questions or anything else to speak of. I would recommend this product to anyone. SONY.... You can't go wrong with SONY!
