2 down 3rd on the way = Stay Away

Coleman C., Newegg
4 April 2015
  • Summary: I'm going out to buy a Denon and will try and sell the next exchange unit for a boat anchor. That's about all its good for.
  • Pros: They paid for shipping the bad second unit back.
  • Cons: Purchased this unit based on several top reviews that I read in various places. I have no problem with the reviewers. I'm sure the manufacturer's have an extra QC check before those demo units go out the door. Unfortunately what is provided to the consumer is another story. Purchase 1: 5/29/14. U...

Crappy video Output

Jltemlock, CNET
21 March 2015
  • Summary: I had a terrible experience with the SONY DN-1050 receiver.  I actually went through two of them  in less than 6 months before giving up and throwing it out.  I bought this AV receiver primarily for use in a home theater with a projector.
  • Pros: The wireless connectivity options are broad
  • Cons: Snowy video output makes the receiver useless in a home theater

Perfect purchase

Anthony S., Crutchfield

  • Summary: I love it. I did tons of research before buying and I have never had anything but Onkyo A/V receivers in the past. Despite many of the reviews I read, it was incredibly easy to setup and is very intuitive if you have had a receiver before. The GUI is second to none.
  • Pros: Tons of technology for a great price Ease of setup Ease of use
  • Cons: None so far

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver because of the top reviews it received on CNET and I'm not dissapointed.
  • Pros: Sound quality, design quality, features like pandora, all the USB ports and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capability.
  • Cons: Not many apps. I'd really like if they had apps like HBOGO and Netflix available. A little bulky.

Great price and features

Nicole, Crutchfield
8 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to upgrade from a very outdated receiver with no HDMI inputs at all. The on-screen setup guide was great and posed no issue to me, however, I could see it being a downfall if you do not have a TV hooked up to it and plan to use it solely for audio.
  • Pros: Great price Tons of input options Clearly labeled inputs Clearly labeled, simple remote
  • Cons: Strangely configured buttons on remote Must have TV connected to view audio options No AirPlay selection on remote or on-screen

  • Summary: Very pleased with the sound and enriched features like Wi fi and Bluetooth. However there is no manual and it was very difficult to set up. I called the Sony helpline was given a case number and they said I would get a call back within 24 hours.

  • Cons: No manual, poor on line info, non existent customer service help from Sony
