sounds good, but the device is still very warm even ...

Blackjack, Amazon

  • Summary: Works well, sounds good, but the device is still very warm even when completely off. There are some auto-on features that keeps the device ready-to-go and swallows juice while it waits, so I turned off every feature so that the device could finally go to sleep and to stop producing heat (eating...

Decent unit...but sending back

Gregory S., Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: After reading several reviews here and online, I decided to give the DN1040 a shot. I was upgrading from the Sony DA3200ES (absolutely fantastic sound quality) because I needed the extra HDMI inputs to connect my various devices (Directv, WiiU, PS4, PS3).

Great receiver until everything went black

Darrin, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace an Onkyo with a failing HDMI board (common problem for Onkyo). The receiver was fast and easy to setup. The auto speaker calibration didn't work out for me, the cord for the microphone was about 2 feet too short to put it where I needed it (about 18 ft) and even...

STR-DN1040 HDMI problems

GH, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: EDIT: I've now received my 2nd STR-DN1040. The original unit had significant HDMI issues. The new receiver, however, has absolutely no issues (so far). My original review was 2 stars. I'm bumping it up a star for now.

Sony STRDN1040 AV Receiver sounds good, nice and clear

Justin.B, Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Sony STRDN1040 AV Receiver sounds good, nice and clear. The only disappointment I have with this av receiver is that it does not do gapless playback, which is a must for a music fan, all my music is copied into flac files and put on a NAS so needed gapless playback for my live albums and pink floyd...

  • Summary: First I've had this for a few months now and before I write a review I like to try it on many different movies. Very easy to set up with the included mic and after trying all the sound settings I found the optimum sound settings for movies.

Vaikutti hyvältä, mutta pettymys yhteensopivuus ongelmien takia

nurmpa, Gigantti
3 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Ostin tuotteen noin kuukausi sitten n. 10 vuotta vanhan edellisen H&K vahvistimeni tilalle. Alku näytti lupaavalta. Helppo asennus, äänien säätö jne. Käyttöönotto oli kaikinpuolin helppoa ja sujuvaa. Ongelmia alkoi kuitenkin esiintymään satunnaisesti. Kuva pätki tai meni muuten huonoksi.
