Sony at it's Best

pdjmwj, h.h. gregg
7 days ago
  • Summary: Replaced a blown Denon AVR-4310 with this. The Denon NIC and HDMI boards failed in under 4 years. Was not expecting the Sony to shine thinking that the Denon had to be far superior. Why, because it was a Denon and everyone knows that they are the best mid-fi around. Sony blows it out of the water. I really did not expect this. If you have very inefficient speakers and need to drive a huge HT theater then look onwards; but, if not look no further.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
  • Cons: Limitied Input Adjustment

  • Summary: A lot of receivers now days are very poorly built and have a lot of HDMI switching issues. This unit outperforms and is so far trouble free.

  • Summary: Impressive sound clarity and ease of use. After a couple hiccups during initial setup with some older equipment -- one of which required me to unplug it -- I have had no further issues since. The connectivity options and remote simplicity work well for the needs of our family.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Stephen K. Mercer, Amazon

  • Summary: I cannot adequately express my disappointment with this product. The manual was very poorly written and had no instructions for troubleshooting. Their site had information what was just as vague and useless. After connecting it to my other components and having it NOT work, I spent MORE THAN THREE HOURS on the phone with Sony support representatives. Not only were they unable to resolve the issues, but different people provided different answers.

Sending It Back

Craig, Amazon

  • Summary: The receiver would not connect to my Wi-Fi, but I planned to address that problem the following day. The receiver otherwise worked beautifully. Set up was easy. Excellent sound. And I loved the simplified remote. The next morning, all my HDMI connections were out. No signal. Another "two star" reviewers complained of the same problem.This is probably a fine receiver, but I just got the lemon. I'm sending it back. One last note.

  • Summary: I have had the unit since May. It works well as a plug and play from the box. I tried to get fancier with settings with the remote and some buttons (up and down) don't work. I called Sony thinking it was a programming issue . They had me send them my remote. To make a long story short they never sent a replacement and they wont respond to email.The bigger problem is I can't even send it back now because they have my remote. so my return isn't complete.

Sony STR-DN1050 Falls far short of the mark!

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: What a disappointment... purchased this unit, rated highly, latest technology but only partially implemented.... you can't stream video from the home network or any direct attachment for that matter... blue tooth...but only one way.... can't hook up your stereo bluetooth headphones and listen to your shows or music wirelessly...how hard can it be...an audio/visual receiver/amplifier but you can't listen to your vinyl... no phono stage...

Great receiver !!!

Eduardo Ojeda, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Pros: Excellent receiver, sound is great, configuring it is easy, using it is easy. Love It. Cons: Limited possibilities to set cut-off frequencies for all speakers compared to STR-925. Have to go to settings to increase/decrease individual volume on front,center, rear speakers, compared to STR-925 in which it was very easy with the remote control.

Power and Warm Sound

BASSheaD, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am very happy with the sony avr. I was a Denon fan for many years, but it jusy didnt seem to pump the power it claimed to have, 125 wpc. The 95 wpc in this unit cranks and on screen volume indicator is totally a must have. Wish it had an apple OIS app i could use.

I'm happy with it.

Joseph C. Cracco, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: Plenty of inputs and it's capable of controlling more equipment than most people own. The remote is OK, but then, who uses all the individual remotes anyway? The only difficulty I'm having is with using a Logitech Harmony universal remote because some of the receivers inputs are accessed via direct buttons on the remote...but some require pushing one button to access a list to select from. The Harmony doesn't like that combination.
