Sony STR-DN1010 review

 

If you like big and brash excitement, then you'll enjoy this Sony – but we found it to be a one trick pony that just can't compete

Stripped-down looks ; ergonomically impeccable ; hair-raisingly up-front sound

But who wants their hair on end the whole time?

This price-point is more competitive than ever before, and a one-trick pony like this Sony is off the pace

Sony STR-DN1010 review

 

Design The STR-DN1010 goes for a minimalist look, with a glossy front panel uncluttered by the usual knobs and buttons that tend dominate AV receivers. There's a power button the left, a large volume button the right (with a mute button), and an input...

7.1 channel AV receiver; four HDMI inputs; graphical user interface; analog video upconversion; audio return channel support; standby pass-through; 3D compatible.

Not our top pick for sound quality; requires $100 dock for iPod/iPhone connectivity; competitors offer more HDMI inputs; skimpy on extra features, such as traditional multiroom functionality and USB connectivity; dynamic range compression turned on by...

Sony's midrange AV receiver improves on its predecessor with new HDMI features like standby pass-through and 3D compatibility, but it lacks a compelling reason to pick it over its competitors.

Sony STR-DN1010

 

Sony has always been pretty good about providing quality products that perform well. That hasn't changed in this case either. The Sony STR-DN1010 may not be the best AV receiver that we reviewed but it's still a great product. Due to its unique 3D...

This is Sony's first 3D-capable AV receiver

There isn't an option for a second room or zone setup

It's got the flashy "3D" feature, but it misses the mark on a few fundamentals.

Bravia sync works brilliantly! Good quality sound

Can not output headphones independently of other audio output - plugging headphones in cancels all sound output No sound mixing - can't mix two audio channels No equaliser GUI interrupts picture

I ordered this receiver prior to Christmas and received it ahead of schedule. This really is a great looking unit. It was very easy to hook up. The calibration mic did an excellent job of getting the sound right. This model replaced an older Pioneer...

Big fan of Sony products

 

Picked up the S570 wifi blu ray player. The Strdn 1010 seem like a good match for it. Paired the reciever with a set of bose 201's for the front and vcs30 bose center channel and surround package, and of course a powered subwoofer. Makes for a great...

Great sound, Looks great, Plenty of inputs, single hdmi output to tv

don't like the gui, drops hdmi signal from time to time
