Sony STR-DN1060 review

 

Sony has a reputation for excellent, budget AV receivers - can the STR-DN1060 continue the trend?

Authoritative sound Good level of detail Rhythmic musical performance

Brightness in 2CH Only one HDCP 2.2 input No Dolby Atmos

The STR-DN1060 has plenty going for it, but that isn’t quite as straightforward as before. Those looking to futureproof their system with Atmos won’t find that here, and with the Denon AVR-X2200W showing that it is possible at the same price, things...

Sony STR-DN1060 review

 

Sony has beefed up the STR-DN1060's wireless functionality with the addition of both Google Cast (the ability to send audio from phone or tablet apps at the touch of an onscreen button) and Sony's own SongPal Link multiroom system. While it seems the...

The Sony STR-DN1060 offers solid design, a high level of usability, and excellent home theater surround sound. The AV receiver offers a number of useful features including Bluetooth headphone support and multiroom capability.

Its sound is somewhat more suited to movies than music. The multiroom SongPal Link app isn't as robust as some competitors' offerings. Spotify Connect not available at launch.

The Sony STR-DN1060 AV receiver offers great sound and is chock full of solid streaming audio features, but rivals are nipping at its heels.

Sony's connected, feature-packed STR-DN1060 AV receiver boasts big sound (review)

 

For the past several years, Sony's midrange AV receivers have enjoyed a healthy mix of extensive features and compelling performance. For 2015, the STR-DN1060 (AU$1,299 RRP) is the best model in Sony's middle tier (stepping up to the high-end ES line...

Sony STR-DN1060 A/V Receiver Review

 

If you can do without Dolby Atmos in this seven-channel AVR, Sony's well-thought-out wireless functionality and sweet, golden sound are an unbeatable combination. Threat: "a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile...

"Great connectivity and multi-channel processing with Auto Set-up"

 

Big improvement over the previous model line-up from Sony. Improved all the right stuff.

Feature set and abundant power for most listening levels

No auto-select for audio processing from any given source; have to hunt-and-pick manually.

This receiver does everything you want.

 

This receiver has all the functions you will need. The multizone setup is very complicated and required multiple setups. Also, do not try to use the receiver for component or RCA components as it won't pass the video through to your tv. I only...

Great product for the price

 

I am pleasantly surprise at the ease of use and set up of this receiver. So far it does exactly what it claims to do. Just be sure to use the ARC HDMI port on receiver and TV if you want them to cross communicate with each other.

very good receiver

 

We love this receiver. Had problems with the open box one we bought first. It didn't work , so I would avoid bb open box items because it appears they are not tested. This one is great though.
