DO NOT BUY

Devian, Amazon
26 October 2015
  • Summary: I'm from NL, bought this STR-DN1040 from a german webshop. I write the review here, as it just seems like Sony doesnt give a damn about the problems this device has, doesnt solve it, and leaves u with their product and the problems. The GOOD: Perfect sound !!!

  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER. After reading the bad reviews where people had issues with defective units, I almost did not order this model, but then I did because I figured that the one I ordered would be fine... Well, it wasn't.

Nice unit while it worked

Amazon Customer, Amazon

Don't ignore the negative comments

David Harvey, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this from Best Buy after reading several glowing reviews on multiple sites such as Cnet. At first I was really happy with it. I hadn't had the chance to use features like the zone 2 support, but I had several HDMI devices plugged in such as my Samsung TV, Chromecast, Wii U, Xbox 360, and...

All the handshake problems you heard about. Stay away.

dlch54, CNET
18 January 2014
  • Pros: All the great features CNET described. Unfortunately CNET didn't describe the Handshake problems with cable boxes.
  • Cons: Really bad intermittent handshake problem with cable boxes. If you buy this you will be happy for awhile, until one day you have no connection to your cable box and can't figure out why. You may get it working again and then a month later same thing.

Wished I had yours

360mitch, CNET
30 December 2013
  • Summary: After reading the reviews I was really pumped about getting my new STR-DN1040 receiver. It appears you will get a great product or a lemon. I got the lemon. After 2 days it started loosing the picture on the TV. "Signal Lost". Then it would come back and then go out aprox every 3 seconds.
  • Pros: Tons of features
  • Cons: Serious HDMI Handshake issues

  • Summary: After trying two of these units, they were both returned and replaced with a Yamaha receiver. Like many others I am sure, I sifted the reviews and found this to receive numerous accolades.
