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). Although it may have been a faulty unit, I noticed that there was some HDMI switching issues - primarily when switching from a progressive to interlaced signal.

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 then it didn't do a very good job with the calibration.

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. If the problems don't return, this system will receive 4 stars (never 5), due to it's inconsistent manufacturing. If my first system had no issues, I'd love it and it would easily deserve 5 stars.

Sony STRDN1040 AV Receiver sounds good, nice and clear

Justin.B, Amazon

  • 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 albums

its a good sound but I hoped for more Oomph for my money

  • 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. The pure direct setting produces a clear sound and with the right speakers delivers a very good movie sound experience.

Välljudande men buggig

Makoobas, NetonNet

  • Conclusion: Jag köpte den för att använda som hemmabioanläggning till min Mac Mini där jag kör Plex. Drog en HDMI till förstärkaren och en HDMI vidare därifrån till TV:n. Jag lämnade dock tillbaka förstärkaren efter att ha testat den. Mer om det under minusavdelningen nedan: + Ljudet är fantastiskt för en förstärkare i den här prisklassen, precis som många recensenter tidigare har påpekat, vilket var anledningen till att jag valde den här förstärkaren.

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. Uudelleen käynnistys tai ARC HDMI piuhan irroitus kuitenkin auttoi.

Guter Klang, gute Ausstattung, aber deutliche Schwächen in der Benutzerfreundlichkeit und bei den Multimediafeatures

Benjamin T., Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Länge:: 9:59 Minuten Kurzübersicht: Pro & Contra Pro: - Hochwertige Verarbeitung - 8 HDMI Eingänge, 2 HDMI Ausgänge - Spitzenmäßiger Klang - integriertes WLAN (Airplayfähig) - endlich ein ansprechendes Menue Contra - Starke Schwächen in der Bedienung / Ergonomie - Völlig überladene und unergomoische Fernbedienung - Multimediafeatures im Vergleich zu anderen Receivern deutlich zu wenig umfangreich - Kein Bluetooth in Deutschland (US Version scheint Bluetooth zu haben) -...
