Sony STR-DN1020

CNET
8 December 2011
  • Summary: The Sony STR-DN1020 isn't a bad AV receiver, but it lags behind its competitors in just about every attribute we consider important.
  • Cons: All competing receivers offer more HDMI inputs. The STR-DN1020 also has fewer streaming-media services than competitors and lacks built-in AirPlay, and its subpar graphical user interface makes its networking features less attractive. We also found its sound quality put it a step behind other midrange receivers.

Sony STR-DN1020 A/V Receiver

Sound & Vision Magazine
23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: There are two hard-wired options for integrating content from an iPod or iPhone into a receiver-based home theater system. The A/V receiver might have a Made for iPod–compatible USB jack, allowing you to plug the device right into the front or back panel. Or the iPod can fit into an accessory dock. But wouldn’t it be great to have both options?

CNET
12 August 2011
  • Summary: The Sony STR-DN1020 isn't a bad AV receiver, but it lags behind its competitors in just about every attribute we consider important.
  • Pros: The Sony STR-DN1020 has built-in networking, allowing it to stream Slacker and Internet radio, along with digital music on your home network, over DLNA. It's also the only AV receiver in this price range to include an external iPod dock.
  • Cons: All competing receivers offer more HDMI inputs. The STR-DN1020 also has fewer streaming-media services than competitors and lacks built-in AirPlay, and its subpar graphical user interface makes its networking features less attractive. We also found its sound quality put it a step behind other midrange receivers.
