I purchased this to downsize my system in our kitchen, and simplify things for my wife. For the price, it has a good number of featurs, including auto HDMI 3.1 switching. Whatever component that is on is automatically selected and signal is sent to TV and Audio (ie Computer, DVD, Blu Ray).Previously I was using a Lexicon MC-1 preamp and Rotel RB-985 amp,and you can definately hear the difference. It sounds less lifelike and doesn,t pass the goosebump test, or the fool the dogs that it's a real dog on TV test. Saying that, it sounds as good as some older ES sony recievers I have owned, and my wife seems happy enough with the sound and ease of use. One dissapointment, the Ipod docks made for this have been discontinued, and had to pay a premium to get a NOS one off eBay.
So far; so alright. No real issues as of yet. Set up is a breeze for anyone with basic knowledge. **FYI** make sure you get the correct remote that belongs to receiver. The STR I purchased came packaged with the wrong remote and I had to contact Sony and have the correct one mailed.
After set up and auto cali was finished I noticed that in order to get the true effect of this receiver you virtually have to turn the volume to mid 30s to get a "moderately big sound" out of it. Past receivers I have owned never had to do this. Possibly cause today's mechanics are made by lowest bidder. They honestly do not make them like they used to. 110 watts X 7.1 channels.. more like 55 per channel plus you have to up the db to each speaker, add extra distance to speaker placement just to get a quality sound out of it. Plus you truly can't function the whole 7.1. I plugged in speakers to main and then bi amped the B and plugged in a sub.. then tried adding connections to the surround portion and it cut out the bi amped speakers. Reading throughout the manual I have found no such luck in getting the true 7.1 out of it unless I double joint speakers.
no zone outs (except the subwoofer); very little optical ports. Average on HDMI
Slick look, better for a first timer surround. If your looking for more power and more options .. by pass this one.
My 15 year old Onkyo puts out more power than this one, plus has more speaker connections that all function.
This receiver is good for the price, although its quite hard to set it up the way it is meant to work, I had to look in google several times cause the manual included in the box is very hard to understand, you will be reading and trying to understand it several hours looking back and foward until you get the idea on how to manage some of the functions.
I will add here that there's a Dynamic Compression setting that by default is turned on and if you want this Amp for DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD audio it most be turned off. .
Also for those that want to use this receiver to connect it to a PS3 you need to redo the Audio Setup in the PS3 settings menu again and also check the Video settings, cause there are some settings that have to be done there too, like the Bitstream over LPCM if you want the receiver to decode TrueHD and Master Audio tracks.
To finish this, I got the STR-DN1010 and took me some time to set it up but I am very happy with the performance of the unit, clear sound, and it's quite powerful too, it overwhelm my old STR-DG810, remember it have a 7.1 HD decoder and can handle 3D, along with 110w x 7, I mean for less than $275 it's hard to get something better than this ...
For a mid-range receiver, it is a good buy especially considering the new retail price of a little less than $300 and the various functionalities it has. My only initial problem was that the user manual was not so user-friendly in terms of the setup for the speakers. Instead of focusing on the more elaborate GUI mode for the speaker setup, it could have just mentioned the specific buttons on the remote that directly access the setup you want. The graphics drawing in the user manual was also very helpful in determining the best connection options to a TV.
This is a good product from SONY like many other, have ingenuity and incredible sounds if is working with goods speakers...but have some minor,insignificant problem with pre programable to bring out the best audio sound,However
Low price and beautiful design make from this model,pattern,
a must have for music fans.
Thank you for your time!!!
