  • Conclusion: Thinking over my entire experience with the STR-DN850 7.2-channel AV receiver, it strikes me as a little odd that the other receiver manufacturers haven't completely ripped off Sony's user interface, or at least tried to bring their own efforts up to this level.

Sony STR-DN850 review: Performance receiver a great value

CNET
26 November 2014
  • Summary: The Sony STR-DN850 has it all: bountiful Wi-Fi networking features, the brawn to provide maximum home theater fun, and the refinement to bring a string quartet recording to life.
  • Pros: The Sony STR-DN850 receiver offers a very good selection of features for the price, including built-in Wi-Fi, AirPlay, Spotify, and Bluetooth. It delivers excellent sound quality for both surround sound and music. Sony's user interface and remote control are attractive and easy to use.
  • Cons: Lacks the extended connectivity of the DN1050 including component inputs, MHL HDMI and Zone 2 amplification.

  • Conclusion: Sony gelingt mit dem preislich fair kalkulierten STR-DN850 der Sprung an die Spitze im AV-Receiver-Business. Hauptproblem für den optisch endlich richtig schicken Sony dürften weniger die 2014er Konkurrenten sein, sondern eher massiv im Preis reduzierte 2013er AV-Receiver, die zwar vielleicht das...
