Sony STR-DN1040 7.1 A/V Receiver

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
4 November 2013
  • Summary: At the end of my time with the Sony STR-DN1040 I am surprised and happy by what I found. More and more of the content we consume comes from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Getting it from there to your AV system is not nearly as easy as it could be.

Sony STR-DN1040

CNET

  • Summary: The Sony STR-DN1040 is a truly first-class AV receiver, boasting tons of wireless technology and a pretty user interface, at a premium price.
  • Pros: The Sony STR-DN1040 is the most feature-packed AV receiver you'll find at this price. There's built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay, plus eight HDMI inputs, which is more than any of its competitors. It also sports a truly modern user interface with crisp, high-definition graphics. And the sound...
  • Cons: It's somewhat expensive and more than what most buyers need. The included remote is cluttered with buttons, sure to put-off nontechies. And Sony's automatic speaker calibration wasn't quite perfect in our listening environment.

  • Conclusion: Der Sony hinkt in puncto Ausstattung der Konkurrenz hinterher, weshalb es nicht zum Spitzenplatz langt. Nichtsdestotrotz ist er ein Receiver mit Top-Klang und zeichnet sich zudem durch eine unkomplizierte Bedienung aus. Florian Goisl, Udo Ratai
