Sony STR 1010 does not make you ashamed to friends!!!!
4 February 2013
Summary: This is a good product from SONY like many other, have ingenuity and incredible sounds if is working with goods speakers...but have some minor,insignificant problem with pre programable to bring out the best audio sound,However Low price and beautiful design make from this model,pattern, a must have...
Summary: We use this for pandora in the kitchen so sound quality is not a huge concern. However, it has been great. The best part is that it turns off when I leave the house with my iPhone , so I never come home to a hot cabinet from the heat of an amp doing nothing. I am very happy.
Summary: Purchased this to replace a JVC unit that did not have hdmi inputs. The sound on the JVC was slightly better but to be fair it was thx certified and did cost 3 times as much as this sony. So far I've been very pleased.
Summary: had this receiver about 1 month and so far so good. excellent sound quality and the g.u.i. adjustments are easy. just follow along with the booklet. If it fails in the future I will follow up on this review.
Summary: Overall, it is a nice unit and fairly easy to program. However, within the first 12 months the unit stopped switching to the selected A/V input. I returned the unit for warranty repair and the same problem occurred again about 10 months later.
Avoid this model, flawed HDMI ports Broke twice in less then a year.

Summary: I bought this unit from Onecall (website not ebay) on 7/5/11, Since then I have had to send it to the Sony repair center twice. The HDMI ports stop working.I've had many Sony products in the past and never had issues till this model, I'm also not to happy with having to send it to Texas 5 months...
Summary: This is a fantastic, state of the art receiver. It has a very good dynamic range. It replaced my Sony D1010 receiver which served me well for 17 years and is just like new. I love my old receiver, and only replaced it for the 7:1 feature and the HDMI features. My mother now has it.
