Substantial upgrade!

Whisper, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I waited 13 years to upgrade my tuner. The last one I bought was a very nice Sony unit that had on-screen menus and control, making the need for multiple controls obsolete. Sony continues to impress with this unit. The on-screen menu is not as user friendly if you don't have an ARC TV, but you can get by without it since the rather large remote has almost all the features of every component built into the remote already.

Sony 7.1 receiver

TLC, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Unit must be hooked to an arc compatable hdmi tv before the gui menus can be easily used. Patch thru hdmi works well and has enough inputs for modern equipment. No phono preamp built-in for play back of vinyl. Other wise this is a solid performer for a mid-priced amp with surround 7.1 sound. FM section works well-AM section is weak except on very strong station.

Great reciver for blu ray and Xbox

Mikejrod, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Absolutely love it. Works great with blu ray and Xbox. Sound is great and the automatic settings don't need any tweaking to my ear, so less to do/more time to just listen and enjoy.

Excellent upgrade from the DG520

dwiggy, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this after a lightning storm trashed my DG520 -- and never looked back. The wattage rating difference between the 520 and the 1020 is only 10watts but the sound is so much richer it seems double the power. I thought that my problem before was the ceiling mount speakers but it was truly the inefficiency of the DG520 that lessened the entertainment experience. The auto calibration works perfectly and sets in about two minutes.

Sony STR-DN1020

Theresa L Fromknecht, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: Totally awesome compared to the Denon AVR-591 this replaced! Love the networking, GUI, and 7.2 is awesome compared to 5.1 surround... and this receiver actually decodes the proper audio being received, whether it's from the cable box or our PS3, and it all synced up perfectly with our 55" Sony Bravia 3D... Also love the Bravia sync system! Can now control EVERYTHING with one remote! This receiver can pump out the sound, and way clearer I might add, than our Denon...

All in all, everything I need in an A/V receiver that won't break the bank.

cut10427, Ebay
6 July 2012
  • Summary: I've owned many A/V receivers and this one is right up there with the best of them.. Everything works as it should. With the right speakers and being properly set up, you can't go wrong with this one. Blu-rays sound and look great, as well as DVD's and my PS3 games. Quite frankly, I don't really notice any differences between this receiver and the high priced Onkyo that it replaced.. It just doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that the Onkyo had.

Ask your doctor about the Sony STDN1020

Steamboat Willy, Amazon
10 May 2012
  • Summary: Howdy! It's been a banner fifteen months. I've been able to slowly upgrade to my A/V system from a crappy one to one of extraordinary magnitude. Yes... my days of watching "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" on the Sony Betamax are over. Now I've been out of the A/V game for some time and have been boning up on what the new technology has to offer. There is amazing gear and technology that is available to people at great prices.

Outstanding Sony Product

Informed Shopper, Amazon
10 May 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this Sony STR-DN1020 to replace a 12 year old Yamaha top of the line receiver rx-1000. The Yamaha had cost me $800 and worked great but was becoming dated with no HDMI inputs. I saw this Sony at Costco for what was a great price. Came home and researched the Sony site where they say it is no longer available so perhaps it is scheduled to be replaced.
