Sony STR-DN1040

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • 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 quality is fittingly excellent for a premium AV receiver.
  • 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.

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. By integrating AirPlay, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi into the STR-DN1040 Sony is trying to make the process as easy as possible. I found playing back my digital content to be simple, just like it should be.

Sony STR-DN1040 7.2 Channel Network Home Theater Receiver Review

About.com
20 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony has crammed a lot into the STR-DN1040. However, that doesn't mean audio performance has been neglected. In listening to the STR-DN1040 for several weeks, and with several speaker systems, I found it to be a great sounding receiver. Power output was steady, the sound field was both immersive and directive when needed, and over long periods of listening time, there was not sense of fatigue or amplifier overheating.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Den stora och naturtrogna ljudbilden och den fina slagkraftigheten gör att man nästan undrar om den här receivern har hamnat i fel prisklass.
